What does one do when life brings you into limiting circumstances?
And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” – Matthew 17:20
If you can no longer speak, write! If you can no longer walk, take to imaginary flight! If you are blind, listen! If you are old, be reborn! Whatever your circumstance still believe in the moving of the mountain by way of faith!
This indomitable faith is not mere positive thinking. No, it is far more than that. This irrepressible faith is not mere living in delusion. No, it is far more than that. This Faith is making use of the gift of Christ … to have the power of God within you … the power to create in the midst of any circumstance.
With this Creative Faith so filled with the power to imagine, I can soar among the clouds, I can race with the dolphins, I can sing with the sparrows, I can play amongst the puppies in a sunshine day.
With this Creative Faith, I can make pilgrimage to the far, distant hills, I can sail on the wind-swept ocean, I can climb the mountain and touch heaven above, I can be what the Lord not only hoped I would be but also empowers me to be.
Though one think that one is confined by one’s apparent limitations … we must remember to live with that miraculous power that is given to those who seek it … the power to move mountains … this power potent in Creative Faith.
Always in His Service,
Fr. Charitas de la Cruz
