Another September 17

Faith as small as a mustard seed
Faith as small as a mustard seed

Yet another September 17 is here and once again I am filled with deep gratitude for the blessings that I have received. 

 

This year, the anniversary serves a critical reminder of God's faithfulness as we are in the midst of a difficult situation that involves waiting.

 

Waiting is never easy. It is even harder when it has the potential to change your life drastically.

 

My faith enables me to see that it is not a coincidence that this "waiting period" happens during my anniversary week.

 

...For truly I tell you, if you have the 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.  Matthew 17:20

 

All that is needed is faith as small as the size of a mustard seed. Based on my life experience, I know that my faith is bigger than that of the size of a mustard seed.

 

It is precisely when we are most doubtful that we need to recall the time when God has come through for us in order to regain strength and confidence.

 

This year's anniversary provides me with just that.

 

Are you going through a difficult situation yourself? I urge you to recall  the time when you have surprised yourself with your own resilience and strength. You can do it again. You only need to have faith....even if it's as miniscule as the mustard seed.
