While I search for the next step God has already prepared for me in this new year, I'm finding my way around the kitchen and learning how to cook. There is one ingredient in the pantry I plan to sprinkle on every meal I serve my family - the mustard seed. It's barely visible, even when I look at it using my new reading glasses.
Jesus teaches that if your faith can be the size of a mustard seed, you can move mountains. A mustard seed may be the tiniest of seeds, however, it's capable of growing into something so large it attracts onlookers from far off.
The New Year's baby has barely opened his eyes and I already see what a blessing he is in my life. At last, I have everything I need to do some great cooking, indoors and outdoors. Yes, faith will be my go-to condiment and I will keep it stocked up. There's a new cook in the Mulligan household...and if you listen closely, you can hear him saying, "pass the mustard seed, please."
Stay tuned for more updates. And if you're one of those people like me who is facing change, here's a video to offer you some encouragement...
