The Mountain

He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, 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

Through all walks of life, we tend to face adversity, some more than others if you really think about it. The question that can commonly be asked is WHY ME? Asking "why me" is probably one of the most selfish questions we can ask ourselves in hopes of finding an answer. You know we were always taught that we only go through these certain things because God knows we can handle it. I don't know how I feel about that saying because not everybody understands the constructs of how the universe works, but I do know that living on this earth we have this power to speak things into existence. The scripture above talks about speaking things into existence, whether it was an obstacle or something to gain. Where I am going with this is that we will go through obstacles in life and we will fall but the best thing to do is to not give up. People fail to realize that once you admit defeat with your own words then you will never move on in life. One thing that I noticed when it come to life is that we tend to meet the same people that represent our weaknesses or we go through the same problems just in a different form. Why is that one may ask, the answer to that is because WE DON'T LEARN OUR FREAKING LESSON.

In conclusion, we need to start thinking positively in times of adversity and work that shit out. FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD BELOVED. Remember to use the word to remove things or people that don't need to be in your life. The mountain represents the obstacles we face AND you have the power to remove it as long as you work hard and have faith that a better tomorrow will come. 

Stay bless beloved
