“He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you” (Matthew 17:20, ESV). 

I’m not a huge fan of jewelry. Fancy beads and diamonds have never been my jive. But when I was in third grade, I thought the “I Love Jesus,” cloth bracelets you clipped together were all the rave. I’ve worn mine for the last twenty years. 

As I prepared to attend the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, I felt led to wear a necklace my best friend got me last year. Embarrassed, I unhooked the clasp from the still-sealed package and secured it around my neck. It looked a little wonky with my other necklace (you better believe I didn’t take it off!), but the gold circle shimmered in the sun. Pressed between the two small clear glasses reflected two things:

  1. A mountain.
  2. And a mustard seed.

I smile now, looking back on the decision to wear it. God is always up to something.
