Faith…the size of a mustard seed

Today’s homily was one of those that made me feel I was in the right place at the right time.   The priest discussed faith—how even if it is the size of a mustard seed, amazing things can still happen.  It can have a contagious and dominating effect…making the light bulb go off in many people’s heads.  If you have faith, you can get through the tough times.  The priest was at a men’s prayer group this past week.  One man in the group discussed how it irritates him when professional football players pound their chests in celebration after making a huge play.  “They’re doing what they are supposed to do.”  I wholeheartedly agree.   I have never done things so that I can bask in th glory of the aftermath.  I have faith that I will get through things.  It’s not always easy but it has kept me going.  It has worked.  Even when I don’t think I can push through it, I have found a way.  It always ends up making me a stronger person because I have forged ahead.  

So, I walked away from church today having a renewed belief in myself….in my faith in God, and in knowing that it’s okay to have faith the size of a mustard seed… never know when that seed will grow and multiply.
