One of the most reassuring things about faith is knowing that you can start small, from right where you are. If you’ve been through pain or trauma – whether it’s because of physical
, or spiritual abuse
; toxic relationships; addiction
; or grief
and loss – the idea of remaining faithful or growing your faith in the face of trials is overwhelming. It may even seem impossible. You’re not alone in this feeling. There is hope for when you feel trapped by your struggles:
“I say to you, if you have faith as small as a 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, New International Version
When you are willing to take even the tiniest steps toward God in faith, He will be there to meet you right where you are, to help you, heal you, and strengthen you along your journey.
