God Only Asks for a Mustard Seed of Faith

After writing and releasing yesterday’s post, my anxiety diminished. With a clearer mind, I began to question whether I’ve been responding well to this set of trials.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I was in a heightened state of worry, doubt, fear, and pain—all things we’re told not to do or feel in times of trouble.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Yet, there I was experiencing them all at the same time.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As I drove down the I-105 freeway, I talked to God about this, and the words that filled my heart blew me away.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “Stop trying to be a tree when you’re really just a seedling 🌱.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ My recent reaction to the tribulations fell in line with where I am spiritually. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m not a seasoned Christian who has mastered the art of stopping doubt, fear, worry and pain in its tracks, particularly when layers to circumstances mount. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m a growing Christian who surrendered in January 2018. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Many trials have occurred since. Each come with new doubts, fears, worries and pains that build my relationship and trust in God.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ In the middle is where I stand currently, in a space between the human experience and a spiritual one that calls for unyielding faith.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ One foot can be sunken in the muddied soil of doubt, while the other can be planted firmly on solid ground. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ But it doesn’t matter that one extremity is entrenched in soggy earth because what’s seeded underfoot is a mustard seed of faith—and it’s growing. ⁣⁣ ⁣ Trees do grow in swamps. ⁣ ⁣⁣ To all the seedling Christians out there, your faith is enough for now. God will grow it.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ All he’s asking for is faith the size of a mustard seed. I’ve got that, and so do you. ⁣⁣
