Faith- the substance of things hoped for,and the evidence of things not seen. (~Hebrews 11:1~)…
Not too long ago a friend and I were talking about Faith. He made a joke, and said he keeps a jar of mustard seeds, and every time I say the word NO to him, he throws a seed away. It was funny to me at the moment,so I laughed. Then, I started to think, “What if we all had a jar of mustard seeds”.Except, when someones says no, or certain doors close in our lives, instead of getting upset, we add a mustard seed to our jar of Faith. How powerful would that be, and how unstoppable would that make us? It’s so easy to let people and things steal our joy, but when are we going to start fighting back. We have to be strong minded. So, I’m challenging you to develop an “I-W-G-U-” attitude, which stands for I Won’t Give Up”. With this type of attitude, every time a door closes, you’ll add another seed to your jar, and say “another one will open”. When things go wrong, you’ll add several seeds to your jar of Faith, and say “My God has brought me to far to leave me, and trouble does not always last”. Plant those seeds now, so they will continue to nourish. Remember, “Faith without works is dead” (~James 2:17~). Your future depends on your mustards seeds…be encouraged and not discouraged my friends.
Until next time,
