Faith like a grain of mustard seed

Before we left for Uganda, I was blessed with a vision of a very tall, “well cared for” young man who appeared paralyzed and unable to get on his feet. I asked God to show up for this young man and told God that I would trust His powerful mercy and grace to work through me. After meeting various young people, I became aware of the lack of funding for college education at a secondary level. Similar to our country, in Uganda the young people who are “well cared for” may also be at the greatest risk. They are at risk for becoming immobilized by false expectations of social media setting for them unrealistic expectations of fame and fortune. The every day hard work of showing up, setting goals and plodding from point A to B to C may not always be glamorous but necessary for character development. Throw in a healthy dose of Bible reading, prayer, fellowship and we will see an unstoppable generation for God’s glory. I trust you, Lord, to show up in a mighty way to provide this message to the young people of today’s generation. I trust, Lord, that You will even use a miniscule life testimony like my own to speak about the importance of our tiny mustard seed of faith. -Teresa- #socialmediadangerstothosewhocanaffordaphone #prayingdaily #yourlifeisignificant

Matthew 17: 14-30 (ESV)

Jesus Heals a Boy with a Demon

14 And when they came to the crowd, a man came up to him and, kneeling before him, 15 said, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he has seizures and he suffers terribly. For often he falls into the fire, and often into the water. 16 And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not heal him.” 17 And Jesus answered, “O faithless and twisted generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me.” 18 And Jesus rebuked the demon,[a] and it[b] came out of him, and the boy was healed instantly.[c] 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” 20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”[d]
