Faith is like a mustard seed, it says it in his word in Mathew 17:20. It doesn’t take much to do great and mighty things or get through a tough time. Faith is like a flower that blossoms and grows with each passing day. I didn’t know the meaning of faith and trust my entire life. I was a miserable and depressed woman. I tried to commit suicide 9 times, one time almost succeeding.I thought I was a christian. I believed in God and went to church, but I was still miserable until I found out what it truly means to give your life to Christ. Until I truly gave him everything. I was holding on to so much, and until I surrendered everything, I was still living in the world. With all of its problems. With all its confusion. With all its suffering. My best friend at the time showed me what it means to really and truly give up my life and give all of it to Jesus. It started with faith. I didn’t even have trust at first, but a tiny bit of faith. When I saw it really could move the mountains in my life, that faith became trust. Now I still don’t have the kind of relationship with God that I want, but I am growing in my relationship with him every day. Maybe you know about God. Maybe you believe in the cross. But maybe you are still suffering. Maybe you haven’t given up and let God be the pilot of your life. Now I am not saying that as a believer, you never suffer. In fact his word says that in this life we will have troubles. But it is so much easier to go through the valley’s when you have truly put your faith in Christ because you know the suffering is not going to be permanent. You know that when you leave this life, you will be with God and there will be no suffering at all. Our life is so short. We are only here for a little while. The suffering will not last forever, though it might feel like that right now. It just starts with a faith the size of a mustard seed. If you will give up completely, then God can do wonderful things in your life. All you have to do is say “Lord I give up. You can have my life. I can’t do it anymore on my own” It only takes a little bit of faith and God will do the rest. I hope that this helps someone to take that leap of faith. I pray that my words here will be read and will help just one person. God loves you and wants you to give your life to him. To truly give him everything. He doesn’t just want parts of your life. He wants all of your life. No other person can fulfill what God can fulfill. Just have a little faith and God can move mountains.
