A strawberry has many seeds on the outside of its surface. These seeds are attached to the strawberry, and when planted, they begin to grow. The same phenomena occurs within our hearts. Throughout life, seeds of emotion, trauma, and experience are planted in our hearts, and we began to sow these seeds. If we’ve been rejected, a seed of rejection is planted in our hearts, we began to sow seeds of rejection, and on and on.
The Strawberry Seeds by Ciera Fulcher was inspired by the seed of love that God planted within her. Meet Luke and Mia, high school sweethearts with seeds of insecurity already sprouting in their hearts. As the sprouts grow taller, and as the couple grows older, more seeds are sown, and the two find themselves at a constant crossroads, unsure of how to heal their past transgressions. It is through this story that Ciera Fulcher describes how a man and woman have to find God in order to learn how to truly love one another unconditionally and replant the garden of their hearts.’
Throughout our journeys, we can pick up unhealthy and unwelcome seeds that are sown to our hearts by other people, but God wants us to let the seed of love overtake those seeds that were planted in us. Whether they are seeds that were planted from childhood or adulthood, God wants us to experience Him so we can experience unconditional love and sow seeds from Him in the hearts of others.
