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."
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:)
GRACE AND PEACE! !
