Moving Mountains

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” -Matthew 17:20

The stormy gales came in a fierce demonstration of Your power and might. I had tried to buckle down I had tried to prepare myself, but the force of Your almighty love has left me broken and with nothing. Exactly where You wanted me. Exactly where You thrive. For the storm was not one of wrath and destruction, but rather one to show to me that my foundation was set up on the sand. You had every intention to leave me without shelter, vulnerable and teary eyed. As I sat there in my own brokenness, I looked up and I saw You, clearer than ever before. The stormy clouds dispersed and the sun came out of the clouds. As I stood in awe of You, I experienced more of You than I ever have before, now that I had finally let go of my own hinderances. You drenched me with love in an instant. You revealed marvelous truths to me. You gave me new perspective. You moved. You moved mountains. The strength of the winds threw the greatest mountain in my life directly into the sea. All because I had for the first time ever given you just a speck of faith, faith to place my fate into Your hands. You showed me the meaning of Your word. Faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains in my life, the mountains of Your creation are perfect where they are, but the mountains we set up for ourselves and the mountains we struggle to scale are the ones that we need moved and the ones that You will move, if we have faith. 

What You have done to me in the past week has been the most gut wrenchingly heartbreaking demonstration of love I have ever experienced. I still do not think I can begin to fathom all You have done in my life recently, You have worked a miracle in me. I am at such peace in my soul. You have restored me for I have removed my cap and allowed You to fill my cup. Continue to move like this in my life, so rapidly and without warning. You hit me over the head with a hammer and immediately knocked all sense back into my head. I am so grateful I can serve a God who has such great intentions for my life. To serve you for the rest of my life as a faithful servant is all I desire. Father, continue to move in my life and the lives of others.

From the mouth of your humble and broken servant,
