One day our boys wanted to go outside and jump on our trampoline. The weather was looking awful as dark, thick clouds were billowing above. I told them they would not be able to jump because of the weather. Our six-year-old looked at me and asked, “Well can’t we just pray that the storm will go away?” I realized how small my faith was when he asked.
Indeed, my faith was small. Nonetheless, I remembered how Jesus said if we had faith as small as a mustard seed we could tell a mountain to be moved and it would move. He said nothing was impossible with faith.
So I said one small prayer with our boys and asked Jesus to move the storm. Over the next thirty minutes I watched as my boys with great fervor jumped, shouting at the storm, “My God move it! My God Move It!”
Over the course of thirty minutes, I watched as one small hole in the clouds turned into a great divide, splitting the storm above our backyard. I learned a lot that day about faith. One small prayer, filled with faith, can indeed move what seems impossible. It may be small, but it matters most.
“…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.”
