{{Today I am linked with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. Here is how it works…. One word prompt. Five minutes. Lots of women. Equals a great time.}}


Sometimes the needs on my heart can seem so big. Almost so big that they seem impossible. There are times that I sit & wonder if it is even worth it to bring to Him in prayer? After all, the needs are big & nothing can change THOSE situations. I can develop an attitude that says, “They are what they are & I will have to just accept it for what it is.” The reality is not that the needs or situations are big but something that I do not want to admit…..

It is that my faith is small.

Yet Scripture tells me, “If you have faith like a mustard seed…”. I know, I know. That smallest seed sprouts into one of the largest trees. The smallest amount of faith can move mountains. Change impossibilities into do-ables. And isn’t that what is needed right now?

In reading the word prompt, SMALL, I find myself praying. Praying for needs that seem large at the moment. Looming. Bigger than life right now. And in praying about them this morning, a strange thing began to happen –

My needs become SMALL when I place them before my BIG God.

Why have I never realized how it works?

The object focused on will become magnified. And the other will shrink.

My five minutes of writing is almost over but today will be a day of remembering & praise for my God Who is big enough to carry my needs for me. For in His hands, my needs are truly small.

You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ”˜Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”

(Matthew 17:20 NLT)
