FAITH CAN MOVE A MOUNTAIN

 

Posted by Picasa


Taller than one of Granny Walden's elevated folk tales or a lofty as a menopausal giraffe's migraine headache we all have a mountain in our life. It can as gigantic as the Earths tallest Mount Everest which towers 29,029 feet in the Asian Himalaya mountain range or as challenging as the northern frigid Alaska's Mount McKinley reachin' a massive 20,230 feet extending her snow-capped head above the arctic clouds.

Calamities of life load us down like a miner's pack mule on a narrow rocky path with life's mountains. Ya'll know the kind that rock your world and turn your insides wrong side out. The ringing phone in the middle of the night informing you of a loved one who just joined the angel band. The face of a surgeon when he tells you that your tiny precious baby girl will probably not make it through the night or the next operation. The tone in your veterinarian's voice tellin' you that some strange weed is killing off your prized hog herd. Financial disasters that have your heart weighted down like a chubby prisoner in a striped jumpsuit chained to a ball and shackle. Yep, these are just a few of the many mountains that have been tossed this chick's way but let me tell ya baby, there's victory in them there hills and the weapon of choice is called FAITH!

The Bible tells us in the Gospel of Mathew 17:20, "If you have the faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, move from here to there, and it will move." Now, those of us that are gettin' a little long in tooth might even need some spectacles or a giant sized magnifyin' glass to even spot a little old mustard seed so we're not talkin' a whole boatload of faith here. Today I challenge you to use that faith to move the many mountains Satan throws in your life path. I've been absent, missin' in action and lax in bloggin' lately. I have been movin' my own little mountain with a potato diggin' fork, a tall white plastic bucket,a big yellow wheelbarrow and a whole lotta faith. The week has been productive. The corn crop is in the ground, fertilized and all. We loaded out three forty foot gooseneck trailers of cow calf pairs and I made a dent in my big old dump truck load of hardwood mulch that forms my mulch mountain.

Guy Woods wrote song lyrics in 1952 that stated," faith can move mountains darling you will see, I can move mountains if you have faith in me." Forget the wrenching convulsion of the charlie horses in this Ozarks farm chicks girlie gams. Never mind the throbbin' spasms that spur the pulsating tenderness in my fifty seven year old lumbar, my acre of flower beds will be dressed and the trees circled with wonderful weed preventin' mulch. I'm keepin' the faith baby singin' right along with Nat King Cole 'cause "FAITH CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS!!!"

  2. I just get the landscapers to move that sort of thing!

    Enjoy the fresh air! Reward yourself with a nice glass of wine at the end of the day :O)

  3. Even when you should be all "tuckered out" from your outdoor accomplishments, you still find lots of energy to write to us - - - - shining like sunshine on a gray day. Thanks!

    Question - - - since I am new to your blog, is it okay to ask about the tiny precious baby girl you mentioned? How old was she when the surgeon told you that? And is she still on earth or with Jesus?

  4. What a lovely post with charming imagery and language!
    I'm glad your week has been productive and I totally agree with your view on Faith as a mountain mover.

  5. Bless you! Hopefully He sent some angels along your way!

  6. What a beautifully worded post. Thank you for lifting my spirits today. Faith is an amazing thing. Sometimes we just need a little jab to remind us to follow our faith and you helped nudge me today.

  7. Nezzy - you are a dear. And, you've just inspired me today to use my faith and get a move on myself. Thank you for that. So glad you have been able to get some things done but sorry you are a hurtin' unit. Praying your aches disappear!! Blessings to you!

  8. Hey your spring sounds like mine and thank the Lord for heating pads to ease the ole back pain at night!!!! And I also live on Faith everyday!
    The Lord has been good to me and like you has gotten me through some tough times but because I know He will never put a mountain in front of me that He and I can't climb together I will keep holding the Faith. Have a blessed day.

  11. Whew, even when I was a whipper snapper, I didn't have that much energy. I'll be hitting the 5-7 next week, so I can relate. Faith really does move mountains, especially when we keep doing our part. Your style of prose is light and entertaining, but there is hint of sadness to some of the events mentioned. It reminds us to put our own lives in perspective. Take care and don't be ashamed get out that BenGay.

  12. God has moved many mountains in my life and there are still some to be moved but I have faith that each of them will be moved at some point. God's time is not necessarily my time.

  13. What a wonderful post.

    Thank you, for the kind words you posted on Maggie's Blogazine about me. I am just the hands and feet of the Lord...he does everything else and all I have been blessed to do in my life was because he gave me the abilities to do so, I am just an ordinary lady who loves people, animals and all the other blessings in my life. I am now one of your followers. Hugs!

  14. Dearest Nezzy,

    I always knew you were a strong, faith-filled woman, but I had no idea of the heartache you'd been through. I guess most all of us have experienced tragedy and agony over the years, but unlike so many, you have not succumbed to your woes. No, you just plowed ahead, full of incredible energy, humor, courage, and faith. The world is a better place because of your indomitable spirit.

    Bless you.

  15. Oh, that was beautiful Nezzy. I know I wouldn't be here today if it had not been for faith....precious Lord,Lead me on.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thank you for the reminder!! I needed my mustard seed held in my face again! Have a great day and good luck with the mulch!

    ReplyDelete
  17. That was a great post...and I know a little about mountains...Have a wonderful week....

  18. Call it a coincidence of sorts. As I was writing this blog of mine with an apt title as above, a lady somewhere in some other part of the world was also writing her blog same day same time and with the same title. She too was trying to talk about faith but in a more subtle way. If you wanna read her blog, here is the link: http://cowpattysurprise.blogspot.com/2010/04/faith-can-move-mountain.html

  19. Nezzy - this is fabulous! Indeed faith can move mountains. Our God is powerful and mighty!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sometimes Faith can be helped along by some hard work - sounds like you're doin' just that, Nezzy. I bet you sleep like a tired baby at night, GF!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm singing along with you for sure! Faith can move mountains!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh Nezzy,
    You are such a pioneer woman! Amazing your still have there working along with the guys! Good for you and take it easy on your poor,little back. Don't overdue! Now I sound like the Mom! Ha!
    Happy week,

  23. A beuatifully worded reminder about the power of faith, Nezzy. No life escapes those mountains....you are a wonderful example of the right way to tackle them.

  24. Hi Nezzy! I know a little thing about those mountains! :) I'm so glad you popped by and enjoyed your comment.
    Be a sweetie,

  25. Mountian.. get out of my way!!!!
    Very well said Nezzy! I love this post.

  26. Hope your aches and pains are better but don't they feel good when you know you have earned them while accomplishing something worthwhile.

    I find it interesting that our church service was on Matt 17:20 yesterday. I sense the Lord asking me about my Faith. Isn't HE incredible.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My goodness Nezzy - you have been through the mill and back - and you still have the faith of a grain of a mustard seed. God is good.

  28. Sweetie...you are so young to remember that song! AND you got the line in the song correct! WELL...I am just smiling all over the place!!
    I have faith. I have faith in you, that you will be here for a long, long time to make me smile as I make my last go around with ...well..everything. My last bike, my last dog, my last home and my last husband.
    And that list gets longer...and longer.
    I loved this post.
    You have been through a lot. The baby. That one I have not experienced, thank God! You are one strong little farm chickie...for sure.
    So..Nezzy...what is "hardwood mulch?"
    Hugs and love,

  31. Amen! That was a beautiful post. Very well said.

    Happy Tuesday.

  32. You do have a way with words... I've been asked about how I can possibly believe in God, given all the bad in the world and having received my own share of misfortune. My response is that I can't pull out any fancy bible quotes or be all intellectually convincing about it. I just know that He exists. How can anyone look around and not believe? And what else can any intelligent person do than have faith that no matter how bad things look, in the end, it's going to be okay. If I didn't believe that, I'd never get out of bed.

  33. Mountains are hard to climb, but I'll take them over a flat terrain any day.

  36. May your physical as well as emotional mountains bow to the power of faith. We don't grow till we are tested. Seems like you are in a growth spurt right now. Hang in.

    And thanks.

    The thanks are from me...what a wonderful, wonderful post!

    And the top things are for you.

    Well, except for the neighborhood boys. If they can wax a car and clean my refrigerator.

    Hmmm...

    Doubtful.

    OK, you can have 'em.

    Wonderfully great post.

    Thank you.

  39. I love it! Is that a manure pile in the pic? Well, sometimes you gotta move the crap to get to the blossoms.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I was actually looking at a big hill the other day think'n Faith can move that thing! I needed this reminder today, Nezzy, as I'm stress'n over coughing too much or snuggl'n babies too much and losing our little seed of "faith"...I know...Iknow...hasn't God taught me anything thru this journey? Yep and it's heap'n with FAITH! Thank you, friend for the reminder!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Geez, Nez! You have been one busy lady! I wish I got into landscaping like you did! Thanks for sharing your faith so boldly with us. It's amazing to me how some of the roughest times in our lives teach us the most about ourselves and our faith! You inspired me to post the "I'm drinking from my saucer" writing on my wall! Check it out!

  44. Fun post Nezzy! Yes He sure can move mountains and is proving that in Iceland at the present time.
    I understand the aches and pains of the garden lovers too. I spent yesterday tossing the weed whacker around and digging some of my veggie garden. It's raining today so I can mend.Yippie!!!! Where's the tea?

  45. Hi Nezzy, What a wonderful post! You are one of a kind you know that? I will borrow you my reading glasses anytime to see that mustard seed..:)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm so glad you've got so much faith because that's one huge mountain!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Looks like you got some really good stuff there. Your gardens will look great with that spread under the plants.

    Don't know about moving mountains, haven't been asked to do any of that lately. Hope I'm up to it when the time comes.

  51. I can't see how people live without faith. There is just no way I could have dealt with some of life's more uncomfortable moments without it!

    Wonderful post!

  52. Oh Nezzy, that was well said!!! YEAH!!!! I love your style writing, YES, I LOVE IT ALL! Thank you love, for coming by to have a slice of cake and to try on a ruffly dress. The party never ends in a heart with faith...because we are going to celebrate for all eternity, so why not practice now?:))))

    Love to you and peace, Anita

  53. Thank you, Nezzie dear. This is just what I needed to hear tonight. I will get out my voice and speak to my mountain instead of whining about it.

  54. Nezzy, I have to know...DID your little girl make it through the night? I need to know...my little one didn't...

  55. happy gardening, dear nezzy! north dakota's short growing season has all but discouraged me from planting any flowers this year. from what i hear it's best to wait until june to put them in the ground and the first frost comes in mid-september. i suppose that's long enough to enjoy them but this mama has enough on her plate right now. i will live vicariously through your flower beds. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Aren't you glad that we're not aware of what we'll have to endure in this life ahead of time? It would surely test our faith. Glad you're getting your mountains moved. :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Your post is so upbeat in spite of the mountains you are moving. I love where you wrote that "the weapon of choice is faith."
    You are an inspiration as you keep on keepin' on.

    ReplyDelete
  58. lofty as a menopausal giraffe's migraine headache? Wow! That's one heckuva simile you got there.

    You've also got a super attitude about life. Good for you. Can you imagine if everyone had your strength?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Love your positive attitude... Sounds as if you needed faith and a clothes peg on the nose to move that much mulch! Hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I absoulutely love your 'faith' and inspiring sight! I so glad I read this post today! I lost a little faith in people last week, and need this reminder of the power of faith and who I should have it in! Thank you for sharing this with us all! Newest follower!

  67. It sure does!!!

    I can't believe all you have been through. What a beautiful testimony of Christ to share all those pieces of you & then claim victory in CHrist!

    I have a little problem I am dealing with tonight & it was really cbothering me until I read this & it so put VERYTHING in perspective & now I am thinking how little my problem is...it really is. But I still am going to stop after this & take some time to pray. thank you so much for using your life to effect mine tonight.

  70. Amen, Nezzy! If you live life as long as we have, life just doesn't pass you by. I've had to live on faith many times, like you; it's like everything cycles. I hope and pray that all is well with you, but if not, I'll send a prayer your way and trust the Lord that He has your welfare in mind. :) Have a wonderful Thursday.

  71. Hi Nezzy,
    I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for your sweet comments. I actually have to go back to work today, and I am wide awake at 4:00 a.m. Yikes~ I better go back to sleep for awhile. Hugs, Cindy

  73. This post is very encouraging and inspiring! Even as tired as you are, I can still sense that you're smiling as you're typing away!!

    BTW, you right about the Barn Swallows. We finally decided to let them stay...we waved the white flag!

  74. thanks for stopping by my blog today. I know why the radio is louder when we start the car. when it comes on it is a song we don't like or a commercial. when we get out it is ALWAYS one I like and turn it up to hear it better. It amazes me I can ride for 20 minutes and hear nothing i LOVE. the minute i reach the house and the garage door starts moving up my favorite comes on. can you tell I like to talk to? your profile sounds a lot like me, except for the age, i am 65 and a Virgo. I was born in Savannah GA, moved to the hills of KY when i was 9 and back to Savannah at age 15. I could sling that manure with you if my achey bones would let me. i know how but the body does not always cooperate now.

  75. Ohhhhhhhhh, I like yer style!

    In total agreement.....faith can move any mountain, and with God, anything is possible.

    Thanks for popping in my world.......

  77. Oh Nezzy, What a beautiful post. It sounds like you've climbed more than your share of mountains but your spirit and faith are still strong.
    This was a wonderful reminder of all the things we can endure. thanks for the encouragement.

  78. ...well I get the sense that if anyone can do this, you can...and inspire many along the way...your joy and charisma oooozes out of my computer screen...I hope all is going well and your mountains are moving along...after this i think many will be moving mountains as well..!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Ah, Dear Nezzy,
    You're reminding me that I will have a mountain of yard work when we get back to Cape Cod. I am in "la la land" down here and completely out of shape from lying around in the sun all day and eating out. Grrrr...I will be seeing a mulch pile in my sleep tonight! But you're always an inspiration so I'll think about having glorious flowers this summer thanks to some elbow grease in the spring.
    Fondly,
    Joanne

  82. So beautifully written. Yes, if you believe, anything can and will happen. Life calamities do test our faith but as long as you stay strong and believe, you can overcome life obstacles.

  83. Hi Nezzy, it's a big strong that we don't know.
    Perhaps it is possible to say faith.

  88. Good Morning Sweet Nezzy...
    Oh my gosh girl I love this post. Yes faith helps us move mountains, and you certainly have one BIG heck of a mountain to move. Could you move some of that mulch out here to Phoenix? I sure could use some in my flower beds and trees. I can just see you humming your song, wheeling that barrel and dumping and sharing the mulch amongst your gardens. Oh girl, wish I lived close by I would have came over and joined in. Can you imagine a Mulching Party?

    Thank you sweetie for reminding me about the faith of a mustard seed. It is one of my favorite verses. Prayer and faith together can truly move many mountains.

    Thanks for stopping by today. I so love it when you do. Country hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

  99. Hey! Fun blog!I followed your link from the Pioneer Woman and I'm so glad I did. We share the same great state with you, but live on the other side. I've got some mountains that need movin'....thanks for the encouragement.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Alright, I take it back, we don't live in the same great state. we're actually pretty far away from you. I missed the whole Ozark thing the first time around ;-) I'm kind of distracted these days. You have some towns with the same names as ours, I didn't think of that, I just assumed we were talking about the same ones. whether we're from the same state or not, I'm still loving your site & look forward to future distracted visits ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  101. Sweetie, your pile is still there & the same size ... just teasing! Checking to see how you are & what's new on your end of this beautiful land.

    Have a great weekend.

  102. So true, I agree and i am a living witness. He has worked in many ways in my life. I do believe prayer and faith is power.

    God bless you more.^^

    ReplyDelete
  103. You certainly have had your hands full with trials lately.
    you wrote it beautifully
    and I know God helps us through times when we think we will crumble.

    keeping busy I think also helps us through our grief. I am a good "thinker" when I am working hard. I process faith in my head when I am busiest.
    If I just sit, I mope and think all is lost

  105. Yes, the yearly spring toting of mulch! We do three yards every year ourselves and just remember, carrying the mulch is way easier than bending over and pulling all those weeds you're blocking!

  106. Thank you for that inspiring reminder. I'm getting off my butt right now to move my own mountain!

  107. My computer has died and borrowing daughters again to peak in at your post today and it made me SMILE. I got off of my rump yesterday and planted all the flowers around my daughters new home.

  110. Nezy,
    Thanks for your comment on my Titus 2 blog post. I didn't see it until today.

    I like your post. Seeing the opening picture made me think of the joke about 2 twins - one you've probably heard. One of the little boys was totally negative, one completely positive. The negative boy was placed in a room with lots of new toys and he did nothing but complain. The positive boy was placed in a room with a pile of the "stuf" from a farm you have pictured above. When his parents came back for him they found the manure spread all over the room, and the boy was filthy. "What are you doing!?" they asked. "With all this manure, there has to be a pony here somewhere!" I heard that story in a sales talk years ago, but don't remember it as often as I should. Yes, burdens and calamities invade daily.
