Faith is the principal of action in all intelligent beings.
Well. Here's the truth. I didn't really know it would happen, but my son put these support poles in place just as the baby 6 inches sunflowers had emerged. He knew without a doubt that these babies would grow BIG! I'm pretty sure he prayed for their success. He watered them. He made sure the had enough fertilizer. Yes. We actually had the conversation, because I had no idea that was a thing and he had researched all the successful growing methods for big sunflowers.
His faith amazes me. His actions to back his faith amaze me too. It inspires me. and it most definitely paid off.
Faith doesn't fall upon us by chance. Most certainly, this faith was not by accident. It was by choice.
So this is your reminder:
Not everything on the internet is a lie. There are life-changing truths that you can find.
Faith is a real principle.
God is most certainly in charge of things.
Oh...and God is super smart. Seriously. How can a seed do all leaves and the stem and the giant flowers and well aaaaaall the plants in the whole world?!
I'm going to trust Him a whole lot more, especially in this crazy 2020 world.
Faith is a deliberate choice. Think about that. Choosing to believe and backing that belief with action, is what truly will make a difference in the world. In just a 6 short months my son will be leaving home and serving the Lord as a full-time missionary. While my heart aches at the thought of not having his amazing soul near me everyday, I cannot wait to see all the results of his remarkable Faith as he goes forward.
Neil L. Andersen said: The Savior perceived the strength or weakness in the faith of those around Him. To one, He said approvingly, “Great is thy faith.” He lamented to another, “O ye of little faith.” He questioned others, “Where is your faith?” And Jesus distinguished yet another with, “[In all Israel] I have not found so great faith.”
