I tossed and turned with one word on my mind while I tried to sleep last night..."faith". When I was putting together a card this morning and went into my folder for a sentiment to include on it, the only one that made any sense and worked with the design of the card was something about "faith". That's not all. In checking my email, I had a response from someone commenting about "faith". Coincidence, phenomenal or remarkable? I came to the conclusion that this was to be my topic for today regardless of writing about something else. In Luke 17:5-10 (please read this in its entirety for yourself), The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” The Lord replied, “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. In this passage, Jesus begins by comparing faith to a tiny mustard seed, but he goes on to explain that it isn’t how much faith you have that matters. It’s how you use it. Jesus says it doesn’t take much faith to do great things. The tiniest amount of faith can plant a tree in the ocean, or move a mountain from one place to another. Instead of waving a magic wand and saying, “Poof, have more faith,” Jesus says, “It doesn’t take much faith to do what you need to do.” In other words, “You have plenty right now.” It doesn’t take much. God has already given you all the faith you need. Was this for me or someone who reads this blog? I don't know.
Here are two cards that came from this inspiration:
