Key Thought

Faith is an amazing thing! Jesus said that a mustard seed sized faith could move a mountain. It moved more than that for this woman. All she had was a "hem of the garment" sized faith, but it was more than enough. If you struggle with believing, remember, a little faith is a great start. Now act on it. Don't let it sit there and wither, but reach for the "hem of the garment" and begin there. God will grow it as you go!

Today's Prayer

Father God, please help the following people that I know are struggling with fully believing in Jesus ... Please, dear God, use me and others in your family of faith to encourage them to step out on what faith they do have and let you grow it from there. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
