Free Printable: Faith is Like a Little Seed {Coloring Page or Scripture Journal Insert}





One of my favorite LDS Primary Songs is Faith by Beatrice Goff Jackson.  I find her lyrics so powerful.

  The first verse goes like this:

Faith is knowing the sun will rise, lighting each new day.
Faith is knowing the Lord will hear my prayers each time I pray.
Faith is like a little seed:
If planted, it will grow.
Faith is a swelling within my heart.
When I do right, I know.

I love the image of my faith being like a seed: a tiny, seemingly insignificant thing which is packed with limitless power.  If we cultivate our faith, it has the potential to grow into a gigantic tree, or even move mountains.  Christ said:
  If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. (Matt 17:20)

That verse is inspiring and humbling at the same time.  Do I really believe that my faith could move mountains? Honestly I'm not sure I do, but I am working on it. And the multitude of miracles I've experienced in my life have helped me to see that trusting in my Heavenly Father is leading to a deep and abiding faith in Him.



I drew this little tree as part of my creative habits challenge and then decided I'd love to put a copy of it in my journal.  Which made me think that you might also like a copy.

This free printable would be a fun addition to your scripture journal for a study of faith, or you could print a copy for your kiddos to color during church or the upcoming General Conference.
