As Little As a Mustard Seed

Faith is a beautiful thing.  It is the essence of life, which takes us one day to the next.  It gives us a reason to believe in life and everything that goes on with us.  It helps us look forward to new mercies and graces every morning.  Human life has its limitations, but with faith it can be one adventurous ride making possible the impossible, and turning imagination into reality.  Faith is an exercise that starts out small just the way life is, and grows with nurturing, spiritual food and water, and heavenly sunshine. Faith is the main ingredient in the spice of life that is required to help us please God.  Faith is what helps us forgive and let go of those most hurtful, hurting and hateful aspects of our lives.  It is through faith in our lives that we can move on with life, knowing that all things work for good to those that love the Lord.

I praise God for the gift of faith that He gives us, that  He gives freely to those who ask of Him.  I thank the Lord that He has taken me though hurdles and trials by which I have been able to turn to Him and rely on His providence, trusting that the Lord would take care of everything.  I can attest to innumerable instances in my life where I have literally seen the face of God shine through, making me trust more and more on His amazing grace than on my own capabilities. I pray that my life be centered more and more on the grace of God through faith and that each act of mine be one of praise, pleasing God in every way.  Praise God for the gift of faith that He gives me and to those who ask.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  
Hebrews 11:1


  1. Thank you Father for the gift of Faith. I learned it from my mother and father here on earth.
    I am teaching it to my two daughters and pray that they will continue on a life filled with God.
    I ask this in Jesus' Name. AMEN.
