Mustard Seeds

Mustard seeds - some of the smallest seeds that can be found create a HUGE tree ....

20He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, 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."
Matthew 17:20

My daily reading has brought me to Matthew - and one of my favorites ... imagine just a little faith in God and amazing things will happen. I pray for the kind of faith that can move the mountains in my life.

Saturday my VB team played in a tourney that in 3 years we have not won a match. Talk about a dry spell, last year I was considering dropping the tourney. I always find a story to share with the team before we play. Last week I came across a story about conquering mountains, first, one must recognize the mountain then, decide you will over come, then take one step at a time.
Reading to the team I am focused on the Match we are about to play - and until this morning realized I was also reading to myself - about my life. As I determine to take one day at a time, moving in a forward direction my guide is God. I will rely on his word to direct me through the mountain.

Referring back to the scripture, my faith does not need to fill the room - but even faith as small as a mustard seed - nothing will be too hard.

Enjoy this Labor Day, having just returned to school teaching, I was ready for a long weekend! I have the opportunity to go hang out with my Family, Aaron and I are pretty lucky - our Families are mostly in town. This year my mother decided to have a theme cookout ... Hawaiian ... pictures to follow:)
