He (Jesus) 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 17:21
God is so faithful, you know? Even when I’m not, He’s still so good to see me through seasons of doubt. I’m just being honest. It amazes me what a little bit of faith can do. It can be as tiny as a mustard seed and still move mountains. If that’s what a little faith can do, can you imagine what BIG faith will accomplish? I’ve found that God will really stretch my faith when He’s doing something new in my life. Last year, my word for the year was TRUST. I think I’ve discovered why…
If I trust more in my ability to make things happen I’ll most likely make a mess. I’ve made a few of those over the years and God is really good about showing me how to clean them up. Sometimes we learn best through the messes we make when we try to do things on our own without God’s direction, guidance, and strength. I love God’s way better. Waiting on God is hard, but His timing is always perfect.

This book is and always has been God’s BIG idea for me. It’s His vision. I’m just His voice. Writing out the bits and pieces of my testimony and my faith journey was sometimes bittersweet. I cried a little bit and I have a few favorite devotions that still spark a tear or two when I read them, but today…
I’m reflecting on the faithfulness of God in my life. My story is His. My testimony is His. My journey is His. So is this book and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the skies…” Psalm 36:5
