Today a student said something that really touched me. She said she loved the future. I never heard anybody say that, especially a teenager. I told her I thought she loved the future, because it meant she had hope and hope is a great thing to have. I told her there were many people who didn't have hope and who didn't look forward to tomorrow. And that she was looking forward to the unknown, because she knew it had great things in store for her. I can be around a person like that forever. I just love that type of energy, because it's contagious.
Hope and faith are pretty much the same thing, because alot of hope -- if that's possible -- equals a mustard seed of faith. And you know about mustard seeds. They're excessively small, but once they burst open, watch out. It's an explosion of goodness all over. Don't you just love a faithful attitude? I do. Jesus said, "if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)
I do believe that young student had it today. She did. She had mustard seed faith. She probably had even more than that. Like that young student today, I too, look forward to the future, because my hope and faith allows me to know it has great things in store for me too. I will continue to believe that. And if I believe it for my life, I certainly believe it for yours.
