Take Root in My Soul


You, God, move in unspeakable ways. I admit it; my doubt is strong at times. I pray for that mustard seed of faith to take root in my soul; but find myself grasping at unfertilized soil searching for seedlings and relying on myself and my own strength.

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

I try to ignite my own flame only to realize that you are the light source. The wick of my soul is utterly diminished without your fire of passion. You want to give me the power to move rocky mountains; but, I need to trust you – endlessly in the good times and bad.

Won’t you embolden my heart, God! Show me the value of following after your steps. Open my eyes to see your presence in my life. Illuminate your steps in the wilderness. May I see brightly the golden outlines of your precious feet.

Like a beautiful rainbow trout needs to the stream to move and breathe, may I crave after the exquisiteness of your beautiful word – for it is my breath, life and reason for living.

Fill my lungs with the fragrance of your face. May I hold out the light of your will and ways. Embed that mustard seed deep inside my soul and let that seed take root. I want to feel it growing inside the cavity of my will. May your mercies and newness overtake me and replace my doubting heart with your perfect plan and peace.
