The type of faith you need

Anybody ever suffer from heartburn or indigestion? It's been said that one of the natural remedies for it is to have a teaspoon of mustard which helps to neutralize the acid in your stomach. I remembered this the other night when I woke up with horrible indigestion and it seemed to help. Standing there in my kitchen, with the refrigerator door open as my only source of light, I grabbed a teaspoon and proceeded to add some mustard to it and stick it in my mouth. For anyone who has experienced heartburn, you know how desperately you want relief from the uncomfortable feeling. After I digested some of it, I heard the Holy Spirit ever so gently tell me to turn over the bottle and look at the ingredients. As I was turning the bottle of mustard over to read the ingredients, I laughed out loud to myself. The third ingredient in my bottle of mustard was mustard seed. This may not seem funny at first, but come along on this ride as I hope to encourage you.

From Striving to Abiding

I must say, even writing this post, made it feel like I was striving...striving to push out a blog post on the first Thursday as I usually do every month, just for the sake of writing it. What I discovered was that I could have wasted several hours staring at a blank laptop screen simply because I wanted to do things in my own time a week ago. Instead, I chose to...
