Of Birds, Bees, and Mice

Often, I have tuned into Patriot broadcasts, such as  www.FromtheTrenchesWorldReport.com  or www.gyotbr.com  (Grow Your Own: The Budding Revolution with Joe from the Carolinas) to listen to tips on surviving a possible economic collapse scenario.

Patriots have called in to voice concerns regarding being able to harvest organic seeds that have not been irradiated, GMO-modified, or in some way, sterilized.  Fear has been in their tales and it should not have been.    

I have pointed patriots to the voice of God in the Holy Bible from Matthew 6: 25-31 in which God has promised us He would take care of us.  After all, he has fed the least of His creatures…birds and other animals.  So, why have we worried?  If we truly have trusted in Him, then we will have allowed and watched His plan for our sustenance unfold.

I thought long and hard about the best way to keep the One World Government from stealing, confiscating, or harming our natural, organic seeds.  Short of physically having gone out into the woods and along roadsides to plant fruits and vegetables, we might have used His suggestion from within His Word to outsmart the evildoers.

The solution?  I would have taken as many organic seeds as possible…even ones that did not naturally grow in my climate, and would have filled the bird feeders, mouse trails, and small bowls as often as possible.  The small birds and other animals would eat the seeds, have traveled throughout the earth, and have pooped out the seeds EVERYWHERE.

The food would have begun to grow naturally, unmolested, and have been ready for any patriot to have harvested.

Every patriot would begin familiarizing himself/herself with how to garden and know what would be safe to have eaten BEFORE electricity and computers might no longer be available.

25“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?

26“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 28And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31“So do not worry, saying, `What shall we eat?’ or `What shall we drink?’ or `What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

  1. I understand what you are quoting, but numerous times it is repeated that we need to be ready.

    Proverbs 27:12

    “A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”

    Genesis 6:21 (NIV)

    “You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.”

  2. One thing is for sure– everything in nature gardens! As critters eat, they deposit fertilized seed which is primed for germination. Usually along the edges of the land, you’ll find that nature planted trees, edible plants, and these often tend to coincide with flight paths and game trails. Observation is an important step.. there’s a salad bar around the next corner, we just have to look for the natural patterns. God’s a pretty smart guy for designing it this way.

  3. Food for thought: faith does have something to do with this, and fear can work against your plan. Being a good steward and a good provider and having a discerning eye to see head to contingencies that ought to be confidently prepared for is a responsible thing. There is a difference between being greedy and taking for yourself at another’s expense, and creating a situation for yourself, your family, your community that provides for them.

    I have found an amazing coincidence (or not a coincidence?) that certain medicinal and nutritional plants I “wish” would appear in my yard…. somehow do end up appearing there. A bird, the wind, some other critter carried it there. Something to ponder.

  4. Awesome post! And to think I get pissed off when a Grosebeak (those pretty yellow bellied, black-with-white-spotted wings) steals seeds out of our garden ground….thank you for assuring me that those birds might actually be doing some good (or at least feeding the deer, burros, and other herbivores in our area)! Not to mention pocket gophers…
