Faith of the Mustard Seed
by Lauren Christine Frahn
There can be times in life where we may feel lost and not sure which direction we are supposed to be headed. Questions like, “Is there something more for me out there?”, “Is what I am doing in my life and career fulfilling me?”, “Am I answering my calling?” and, “Do I feel genuinely happy?” can go around and around in our heads.
We may feel unsure and confused about where our path in life is going. “What do we do next?” “How will we know if we are on the right track?” It is times like these that we must have the faith of the mustard seed….
“I tell you the truth, 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” -Matthew 17:20-
It is times like these that we must put all of our faith in God and trust, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that He will guide us. The Bible tells us that all we require is faith the size of a mustard seed. The mustard seed is no bigger than the size of a little dot, yet it can grow to be as big as fifteen feet tall. It serves as both encouragement and as a reminder that if we are going to be able to do great things, we must put God first in our lives. Although we may feel as if we are small, similar to the mustard seed, we are capable of great things through God, like the growth of the mustard seed into a sheltering tree. However, in order to achieve this growth, we must first have implicit trust and faith…
“Faith is believing what the eyes cannot see.” -Anonymous-
You may be thinking that it’s not that easy, but really it is. Our stories are already written. It is only when we are open to this fact that we are able to receive God’s direction for our lives…and it is up to us to follow it. Relax in knowing that we are exactly where God intends us to be. Open yourself up to this, for no one knows better than our Creator what is best for us, but we must have faith in that. Pay attention to the Divine impulses that you feel inside of you….and take action when “guided” to do so. Cast your doubts aside, follow the faith of the mustard seed and put God first in your life, trusting that “He will raise you up on eagle’s wings”…
“Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.” -Helen Keller-
