Hello creative friends, I hope you are well today, if not I am praying for you!
How is your faith these days? Is it big like a mountain or is it difficult for you to have faith the size of a mustard seed? I have to admit that I’ve been at both ends of the spectrum at times. Even at both extremes in the same day. I have believed for huge prayer requests and for impossible healings, receiving yes answers from God yet…lately I find myself discouraged at every turn. It’s easy to have faith when God is saying yes to miracles and amazing things but what about those times when you stay faithful in prayer with a heart full of expectancy only to hear nothing? It’s kind of like that for me right now. Feeling like I’m not seeing any mountains move and not seeing a harvest where I have sowed in tears and hard work. So the Lord is teaching me how to climb the mountains, with Him by my side guiding me. I have no doubt that at times He’s carrying me…while I’m kicking and screaming like a two year old saying “me do it!!!” Not a pretty picture I know but I’m learning how to rest in Him and it hasn’t been easy. I’m all about being extra productive, a do-er by nature. I’ve realized this year that I was trying to earn God’s approval. Crazy right? It’s crazy because He already approves of me and loves me. No amount of works is going to make Him love me more. I guess I was trying to impress Him with my big faith which turned out to be not so big after all. The Lord is teaching me to persevere in faith even when I want to give up because it seems pointless. When weeks turn into months and months turn into years, how much faith do I have to believe that God will keep His word? I begin to question whether I heard Him right in the first place. And then I’m hard on myself for not having enough faith. It’s a vicious cycle that needs to end, so I’m learning to rest even in faith issues. I couldn’t muster up faith on my own anyways, it’s God who gives it to me. (Rom 12:2 and Heb 12:2)
Matthew 17:20 says: He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
So today I am asking for faith the size of a mustard seed. That’s all I need since none of my needs are bigger than moving a mountain!! I pray that the Lord will give you the faith that you need today as well.
I kept this page simple, only adding marker to fill the white space with mustard seeds.
