Lord, Transform Me into a Woman of Mountain-Moving Faith defines faith in the following ways….

1.  confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another’s ability.
2.  belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact.
3.  belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims.
4.  belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc.: to be of the same faith with someone concerning honesty.
5.  a system of religious belief: the Christian faith; the Jewish faith.

Faith is an area that I have trouble with, too, at times.  Not in my faith in God or in Jesus Christ as my Savior.  I am solid in that.   But if God asked me to do something like, say, he asked Abraham.   Leave where you are, I’m not telling you where you’re going, but trust me.   Or like the Apostles…. all Jesus said was “Come and follow me, and I’ll make you fishers of men.” and they did.   If God called me to do something like that…. could I do it?   It makes me squirm to think about it.

Then God reminds me that what I am doing right now, I stepped out in faith to do.  Originally, when the CN blog started, there was comfort in numbers.    I was one of 6.  Then one of 5.  Then one of 4.   Then one of 3 for a long time…. but when it became one of one…. could I do it?  I felt so very strongly that God was telling me there was still more work to be done.   So it has been my prayer that God would continue to bless me in this ministry, would continue to bring to me the women who need to hear His word through this blog, and that he would continue to use me as his messenger, speaking his truths to anyone who needs to hear it.   This blog isn’t within my comfort zone, but I have faith that the Holy Spirit, who indwells me, will continue to provide me wisdom in covering topics that are important to you and your marriages.

Mustard seeds are tiny.

but it grows into this….

Read your bible.  Pray for more faith.  Our God is faithful.  He will always be there to do what he says he will do.   I know I will be.

“If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there, ” and it will move; nothing will be impossible for you.”  Matthew 17:20
