At the weekend I went to a worship event called “Big Church Live”. It was a really nice evening and great music.
One of the songs had the words “a pocket full of faith”. It went on to say that with just a pocket full of faith you can do amazing things.
I have to say that when I started this year I didn’t even have a pocket full of faith. It was more like a grain of faith and I think that is even an over exaggeration.
I knew I wanted to lose weight and the thought of doing it sounded good. However I really didn’t believe I could do it.
I have been on diets before and I have done really well but I got to the point where I wasn’t losing anymore weight. Then I went into a state of depression and the weight piled back on again.
I felt I had tried everything to lose weight but nothing was working. I then believed that there was nothing I could do.
So you can see why this time I didn’t really have much faith, I didn’t believe in myself enough that I could do it.
There is a verse in the bible that says if you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can move mountains.
I have to admit that my faith started to grow as the weight started to fall. I began to believe in myself. I began to think that I could actually do this.
Then the challenges come and the weight stops dropping – that is where the faith is tested. I am now at this stage where my faith and my belief in myself is being put to the test.
Now though I feel I have a pocket full of faith and not just a grain. Even though my weight is still not moving. I believe in myself an awful lot more than I did at the beginning of the year.
If a grain of faith has got me this far I can’t wait to see what a pocket full can do.
