Ye of Little Faith

The other day I was reading in Matthew and Jesus says,"For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you." I realized how small my faith really is and how often I remember to palce my faith in him for the "BIG" but not the "small" stuff. Christ says he who has faith the size of a mustard seed you could move a mountain without resistance. I was amazed at how little that was and I know that I can't move a mountain, and so I know my faith isn't the size of a tiny little mustard seed. For those of you that don't know how small a mustard seed is, it is about the size of like a quarter of a marble or so, in other words it is tiny. Just that big! I challenged myself to place my faith in him more often and not only on the "BIG" stuff but the "small" stuff too.

Good thoughts. Sometimes its hard to trust God and have faith and not try and tackle things all your own.
