Mustard Seed Faith

Below are three of my Haiku verses on the God kind of Faith. Every blessing . . . .

•A God-incidence –
powerfully spoken Word:
moving mountain Faith.

•Deployment Order:
to action-heavy trenches –
Faith’s best breeding grounds.

•Global prayers for peace –
unadulterated pleas
soaring under doubt’s breaths.

When the disciples had Jesus off to themselves, they asked, ‘Why couldn’t we throw it out?’ ‘Because you’re not yet taking God seriously,’ said Jesus. ‘The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, ‘Move!’ and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn’t be able to tackle.’ ~ Matthew 17:19-20, MSG

God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole. I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory. ~ 1 Peter 1:5-7, MSG

The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. ~ Hebrews 11:1, MSG
