That mustard seed and my faith

Matthew 17: 20 - " He 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 the mountains, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

The days have been good, but there is something in my head that is just not connecting I guess. I'm not really sure how to explain it but I am really wondering if my faith is as strong as I really claim it is. Stress has once again taken over after being gone for a while. It seems that Satan, who for a while left me alone... I figure he got tired... has popped up again. It's not that I don't believe. I do. I talk about it everyday, I tell my friends now as much as I can. I do know that God loves me unconditionally, I know that He has my best interest at heart and that I can go to Him anytime day or night, unlike others. I know that He really hasn't forgotten about me..... I just hate when Satan throws that doubt in..... **sigh**

Just say a prayer today for me. I already know God heard mine, but it never hurt to have backup!!

I love you all and Lord willing...


  1. odd that I, too have been attacked by Satan's relentless schemes this week. Do not give way to is because you are near the Lord that Satan comes with doubt. Can't you see it so plainly? Throw God's word at him just like Jesus did when tempted after 40 days of not eating. Think about it..if I went 40 days without food and was offered bread...could I resist? That is when you need to pull out God's word...the smae one's we tell our friends about....You have a weapon for the devil's onslaught...USE IT♥ (and remind me to use it) lllovvve

  2. Danette,
    I understand that question all too well. I would encourage you to feel blessed by that question in addition to the unsettling it brings. With that question, you are examining the very thing that connects you to our Lord intimately. So don't we want to make it the best it can be. We should never feel comfort in our faith, but hope for something better. God will come to fruition in your life regardless of how we feel because he loves us and does not need our strength! Praise Him who is great! Thinking of you....
