Do you have the faith of a mustard seed?


Do you have the faith of a mustard seed?
.
What a fun Sunday dinner my family had. I don’t get to play much with my food as an adult, but today, I could remember how fun it is to be a child.
.
Using bacon and eggs, I successfully demonstrated the council in Heaven, the Garden of Eden, and the fall of man. We made it to the resurrection and we went over all four principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
.
The kids were having fun and a lot of great questions were asked and answered. This conversation came after a fantastic baptismal interview my seven-year-old had with our bishop this morning.
.
I am grateful to not know everything about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I enjoy to learn, I enjoy to see my faith grow, and I enjoy to build a stronger foundation to my testimony. Learning about the Gospel gives me hope.
.
As I explained the first principle of Faith, my son had several questions. Did you know you don’t have to know everything about something to make a decision? As I’ve mentioned before and the scriptures teach us, the witness doesn’t come and isn’t revealed until AFTER we have faith.
.
I didn’t know everything about baptism when I was 8 years old; however, I did learn a lot about it, and I felt like it was the right thing to do—I was never forced.
.
I’ve ALWAYS trusted my mom and dad. They’ve never lead me astray. Why wouldn’t I trust them about faith, repentance, baptism, and the gift of the holy ghost?
.
My parents promised me I would be guided, directed, and protected as I made the decision to make special covenants with the Lord. They were 100% right.
.
Because I’ve trusted them, studied on my own, and lived the best I could to be in harmony with the teaching of Christ, I have been blessed and directed by my Heavenly Father.
.
Having faith, the size of a mustard seed, doesn’t mean we legitimately and physically will move a mountain. Having that kind of faith means we are ready to follow the Lord and do as he directs at all times.
.
Our faith is going to be challenged, tested, and tried. When it comes time to “move our mountain of the Lord” we will do so without questioning the purpose. We will immediately put our trust in Him—Remember Nephi’s courage?
