    Matthew 17:20

    "And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

    King James Version (KJV)

    I prayed "God please move this mountain, literally!"

    I guess I needed to know if I had a mustard seeds worth of faith and if God would honor His promise. Was the Bible true?!!

    My mind goes back to when I was a young woman newer in my faith.

    My weekly trips to the grocery stores 25 miles away by car, were a time of prayer and reflection.

    I was sincerely seeking God about Matthew 17:20. Armed with the information (Before I had google ) that a mustard seed was indeed the smallest of seeds, I began to seek The Lord earnestly with my small faith and my whole heart to move a "literal' mountain I had chosen in a very distinct spot who's location I was SURE wouldn't be forgotten or mistaken!

    Six months I prayed earnestly each time I was whisked by my mountain on my way to the grocery stores, never seeing any sign of the mountain moving. I'm sure I questioned and borderline doubted but I didn't give up!

    Around the sixth month, I noticed some work truck action around the base of "my" mountain. Almost losing heart I thought for sure it wasn't gonna happen. And then after awhile I began to notice 18 wheeler type trucks coming from the base of "my" mountain hauling gravel! Moving my mountain! By the truckload! God is faithful!

    It's still a gravel company to this day! Still moving "my" mountain!

    God answered my prayer! His word is true. He WILL move Heaven and Earth when His child stand's on His promises! He didn't do it like I imagined, but in His Wisdom. And I'm ok with that. This was over 20 years. I am standing on His promises today. And when I pray for you, I think of "my" mountain! And I don't give up! And I don't stop believing!"
