A Little Faith…

“God does not require you to have great faith. You simply are to have faith in a great God.” – Bill Bright

Sept 10, 2001.(The night before our nations tragedy) Sleep escaped me. My heart ached as I prayed and cried out to God, seeking direction, though I knew what He was asking of me. He required that I stop all fertility treatments. There was no audible voice, but His presence was overwhelming as I prayed. In the morning I would tell the doctor (my 3rd fertility specialist) that we wouldn’t pursue further treatment. Her response was a tender one as she urged us to reconsider. Wouldn’t I always wonder if one more try would result in my “dream come true”? With faith that felt significantly smaller than a mustard seed I meekly told her, my God is bigger than medicine and I was putting my trust in Him alone. She hugged me and said she would call me in 6 months with phone numbers of adoption agencies, certain that pregnancy without intervention was impossible for us. I cried much of the way home. To say my faith felt small, is an understatement. My decision was no longer about feelings, it was about knowing. I knew God had plans for my life and they were good plans, with or without a baby. But, I had to let go…..
The doctor called me 6 months later and I got to share the amazing news…God had answered our prayers! The impossible had happened. I was pregnant! She assumed I had gone to another specialist. No, God was my specialist and He got the glory! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ Don’t be afraid to trust God even when your faith feels microscopic. Your faith doesn’t have to be big in order to follow God. What is God asking you to change or let go of? You can do it! It only takes a little faith….

Matt.17:20~He replied, “Because you have so little faith. 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.”
