The connection between living out your dreams and mustard seed faith

I have had a little flack for the things that I have shared over the last few weeks/month or so. Especially when I talk about dreams, goals and taking charge of how you live your life. So be it. I can deal with it because it is something that I am very passionate about. Why? Because I am just NOW learning how important it is to defy all negative thinking, words spoken by others, and anything that hinders one from reaching their goals and dreams. I also am learning that there is NO SUCH thing as dreaming too big! I will NEVER tell my children they are foolish for thinking that they can be something/do something or be a part of something that seems bigger than life. Why? Because they CAN indeed do/be/be apart of anything they choose to.

This morning I was gifted the reminder of the things that I am doing and the way I am choosing to live is indeed the way He desires. I am learning to live by the truth of what REAL faith is. Many people speak of it, speak of having it, yet their lives do not reflect it. God whispered it and spoke that is the difference in my life today from just a couple of weeks ago. I finally HAVE the faith of a mustard seed!

He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”e Matthew 17:20 (NIV)

He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you. Luke 17:6 (NIV)

Amazing right?! But why isn't it being done?! Have YOU seen mountains be moved or trees be uprooted right before your eyes!? I haven't but I have seen the ground begin to tremble just this morning. I am learning what it is to visualize the life I want to have and in a sense I can almost feel it. I am NOT afraid to dream big and boy do I have some BIG dreams lately!

I have let go of yesterday, any  negative comments made to me about how foolish my dreams are, and in so me sense I am limited contact with those around me who are naysayers and negative nelly's. I am beginning book two of The Ladies Of Cotton Lake series, and in it is going to be some spiritual cleansing of the past  for me, some I love, and for those I have never met before. God is up to something BIG with this series and I will not be the one who stands in the way. Last night as I was sharing my heart and current vision (which is nothing like I am able to completely embrace yet) I was given this sweet word:

So let me encourage you to start DREAMING big! Get up, dust off your brain ... and allow your HEART and LIFE become a window box of your heart and deepest desires! I have, and I refuse to go back to just barely making it day to day ~ and living with no dreams or goals.
