Even the Smallest Amount of Faith Can Do the Impossible!
For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you……”
We all, at one time in our lives, have struggled with faith; whether it’s faith in God or in humanity. These words of Jesus always bothered me because I wanted to move that mountain, and couldn’t. The obstacles and distractions of life blocked my path of faithfulness, and I felt disappointed.
It has only been in recent years that a different interpretation came to me. What if the mountain Jesus was referring to really is me? What if faith the size of a tiny seed is enough to reconfigure my thoughts and actions; and create a new person within?
Part of my faith walk is believing in the overall goodness of humanity and our ability to love and care for one another. Changing my attitude was the highest mountain for me to move.
Praying we can move forward together….
