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…..you never know when that seed will grow and multiply.
