Poem based on Matthew 17:20 and Luke 17:6. I started thinking of this after I wrote Blind Faith. Jesus says we can move mountains if we have faith the size of a mustard seed. (one of the smallest seeds in the world) However, we can only get that faith by removing ourselves from ourselves, and all worldly things and concentrating solely on Lord Jesus Christ.

Faith the Size of a Mustard Seed

The Disciples were
Ordinary men
Confused and unsure
Consumed by their sins

They went to the Lord
When they were hurting
But sometimes His words
Left them uncertain

The Disciples knew
Lord Jesus was great
First thing he would do
Would increase their faith

So with eagerness
And virtues intact
To him they confessed
The faith they did lack

The Disciples thought
Lord Jesus would say
“The faith you have sought
Is now on its way.”

Little did they know
When they heard him speak
He would make their souls
And spirits feel weak

The Disciples were
In a state of shock
Dumbfounded for sure
When they heard him talk

The words in their ears
They couldn’t believe
Void of any prayers
They felt so naïve

The Disciples heard
The Lord Jesus say
“Though it sounds absurd
If you simply pray

You can move mountains
Heal those who are ill
Drink from my fountain
If it is My Will

You can calm the sea
Make the winds not blow
Miracles you'll see
If I'm in your soul

So open your eyes
See all that you need
Is the faith the size
Of a mustard seed
.”
