One of the hardest things in life can be personal growth and spiritual change. Overcoming our own personal struggles can seem insurmountable, like huge mountains we will never be able to overcome in our lives.
Jesus feels differently about us. He told his first followers "I tell you this: if you had even a faint spark of faith, even faith as tiny as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and because of your faith, the mountain would move. If you had just a sliver of faith, you would find nothing impossible."
Those men and women were able to overcome who they were and go on to change the entire world in the name of Jesus. This year, let's ignite that spark of faith and believe that God will change our lives. And that from these changed lives, we His People, have the potential to change our families, communities and the world.
