Mustard Seed Moments…

Good morning!!

If you’ve been walking on your faith~journey for a little while, you’ve had some “mustard~seed moments.”  There are huge, amazing, “Red~Sea~being~parted” moments, David and Goliath moments, sick~being~healed moments…and then there are these…

…mustard seed moments…personal moments that no one else would understand but you.  

Then there are times when God does something cool for your kids and you witness it…their own “mustard seed moment”…and you get to see it and you get to pull them into this beautiful faith~journey that you’re on.

{Yes…I got to witness one the other day…Father, give us more mustard seed moments!!!!}

They are the moments that God gets personal and intimate with you…reminding you that He’s into details…the moments that remind you that He’s closer than your breath and can read your very heart.

And you want those moments for your children…more than anything…almost more than anyone…almost…

…but God our Father wants those moments with our children more than we do!!!

He wants that moment where they look at Him and smile a smile of recognition and praise and adoration because they know they are known.

“But if anyone loves God, he is known by Him.”  1 Corinthians 8:3

He wants their hearts…their love…their adoration and praise like He wants mine.  And yours.  He is in our moments, up in our business, and in our busyness, too.  Closer than the air we breathe, and He is the Giver of all things good.

“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.”  James 1:17

And we get to remind our kids of these things in those moments…we MUST remind them…that He knows us and that He is the Giver of all good gifts and that He is Unchanging.

These moments are sweet and tender and amazing.  These are the “little BIG things”…the little things that are HUGE enough to fill a growing faith~heart with gratitude and smiles.  The mustard seeds begin to bloom…

…so we pray for these moments.  We wait and watch for these moments.  Sweet and tender moments where we see and our kids see that He sees us…He knows us…He has us and our children in His hands wrapped up in His love.  

Pray that their footsteps and our footsteps will confidently follow His heart, His paths…pray that we will grow to look like this…

…all because of our mustard seed of faith.

Give us roots of faith deep in You, Jesus.

In Your Name alone, Amen.

Blessings,

“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”

Colossians 3:16
