minimizing my mountains

my mountain turned into a molehill today

all because . . .

a friend showed up and walked my way

mercy was the miracle that shrunk my mountain’s size

when all I had was a mustard seed — a miracle before my eyes

I turn molehills into mountains but faith moves mountains into the sea

yes, my mustard seed of faith moves both mountain and mulberry tree!

“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.”  (Luke 17:6)

” . . . if you have faith and do not doubt, . . .  you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.”  (Matthew 21:21)

“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”  (Galatians 6:2)

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up.  But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!”  (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”  (Proverbs 17:17)

a quote from Sirach says, “a faithful friend is a sturdy shelter, whoever finds one finds a treasure.”

friends are one of God’s good gifts, one of His best gifts to us ever

sincerely,  Grace Day

  1. All it takes is a mustard seed size of faith.No matter how gigantic the mountain or how deep the roots of the mulberry tree, a mustard seed size of faith is enough. Thank you Lord for a measure of faith.
