Today we start our first day of school at The Puebla Ponderosa. We are missing one important thing, though. "Hoss" finds himself in another place, a different school. (See my previous post)
When I woke this morning, there was a heaviness in my heart at the thought of having school without him. The Lord had other plans for my thoughts. In my quiet time, I read Matthew 17:20. "He said to them, 'Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.'" Matthew 17:20 (AMP)
Then I thought back to a charm bracelet, belonging to my late Gran, that was passed on to me. It contains a charm of a real mustard seed incased in a see through locket. On the back, Mt. 17:20 is engraved. I proceeded to take it off the bracelet and put it on a necklace, which I will wear as a reminder to pray for my son, trusting God is able and can do above all I ask or think. THEN, I pull up a devotional email and ,yes, right in front of my eyes, there I found this.
This is just a reminder that my God knows what encouragement I need for each day. Providentially, He knew I needed a (or it seems, many) reminder that I can have faith in Him to do what seems impossible.
