Faith · Trust

little faith…

Struggling with writing the study with ladies… past the half-way mark but time feels pressed… and the more I fret… the harder it gets…

The fretting a sign of mistrust… unbelief… little faith…

The last meeting with ladies… I asked for prayer… and one of the sweet ladies who sits at my table says… Why are you worried…? Look at all you’ve already done…

And I think about it now… after a serious struggle with words… and I wonder… Why isn’t it comforting to look back at what’s been done…? and trust it will continue to get done…?

Then I see… it’s because it doesn’t feel like it was me…

It would be much easier to trust my own strength… my own words… work it out for myself… then Yes… I could look back and say… Look what I’ve done… of course I can do more…

But in this place of listening… trusting Him to bring words and determine the time… everything feels a bit unsure… steps of faith required…

I still have so far to go… when it comes to building faith…

So today I say… Look what He’s done…! and determine to trust His faithfulness… which I know from experience… has never failed…

O me of little faith…

Counting on that little faith… hopefully the size of a mustard seed… to fill blank pages with words… and make time to prepare to teach…

And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed,
you could say to this mulberry tree, 
‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. …”
Luke 17:6 ESV

Trusting in the power of little faith…
