The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”
Have you ever asked for more faith?
Just last week, I found myself overwhelmed with a number of little things. Personally, I don’t mind interruptions to my schedule if they mean I can help somebody. However, I really dislike all the interruptions that prevent me from doing work or seeing people. Last week I got stuck in several situations that had no good solution, but they took a LOT of time... In the end, I know I really do not have anything to complain about. There are so many people who are dealing with so more than me. However, even the smallest worries can be destructive if we allow it into our hearts.
Today Christ tells us to have faith. Jesus says that even faith the size of a mustard seed can lead us out of the darkness. When I reflect on this, I am reminded of how easy it is for the problems of this world to consume me. Christ reminds me that love is greater than all fear. There is no height or depth that can keep us from the love of Christ. Today I hope we can all make a little room in our hearts for faith. God has incredible love for us all. Let’s let go of our fear, and let’s allow love to set us free.
