One of my favorite places, is the beach!
There is something about the sand, the waves of water coming in and out. It holds it's own beauty. It is like the poem of yesterday's post of the footprints in the sand. Jesus carries us in life!
The sky is painted different everyday of life and so are the waves that move by the power of God. Each day holds new thoughts, new things to do and yet our normals of life. I find that my normal changes suddenly and that brings me back to the beginning of my faith. My faith starts when I heard a message at church about the faith of the grain of a mustard seed. The example who seen in the mustard seed that was super small. Yet, that is all we need is a small amount of faith to move mountains.
Matthew 17:20 NIV
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, 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.”
Philippians 4:13 NIV
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
I was talking with a friend last night, explaining how sometimes I feel that I can not be real. I am human and have hard times too. Yet, as soon as I express myself feelings, I get hit with words that hurt. Someone who says I have lack of faith or I'm not trusting God enough. Maybe that statement that God will work it out and you really just wanted to vent to someone. I find it important to vent to people who have a ear to hear you. Someone who wants to be a real friend that is a person who speaks and listens to you. I understand that my faith will carry me through the grace of God, but I also wants to share some innermost feelings.
This season of life brings my mother in law/love in the hospital. She has internal bleeding and they don't know where it is coming from. Doctor's are doing more test today and will probably send her to a care home this week. I have emotions over that and I saw my mom go through a lot inside the care home. We are finding a new care home for Helen and we will be ready to step in and make sure things are good. Yet, you have emotions over a care home, memories of the past and even a slight scare about the future. So I decided when I write you, I can be real here.
My faith is God is big and I trust him all areas of life. Just sometimes I am human and need to share my inter heart with someone. Sitting at beach and the chair next to me is empty or someone is sitting there. I know that God is right there. I know that there can be a peace beyond a human understanding and sometimes we do get scared as adults. Growing up is not always easy, but so necessary to make grown up choices.
EVER SO SMALL ~
Is the mustard seed of life
It's a new day, new choices and new beginning! How to your faith and lean to God for understanding. Also, reach out to someone who you trust. God does send real friendships into our lives and real caring people. He also have given us measures of faith and it all begins with small. We grow our faith by hearing the word of God and trusting him step by step. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends!
