Faith Like Dust

I am a questions girl. I ask them, I think them, they often trouble my mind and heart. I find that the asking of questions isn't the problem. When I ask questions they lead me on a quest or great adventure to find answers—some I expect—and some that are greatly unexpected.

Although I love my desire to understand at times I wish I were more like nature. I desire to have faith like the dust, mountains, and the waters. They know Gods voice and obey! In the scriptures it says,

8For behold, the dust of the earth moveth hither and thither, to the dividing asunder, at the command of our great and everlasting God.

9Yea, behold at his avoice do the hills and the mountains tremble and bquake.

10And by the apower of his voice they are broken up, and become smooth, yea, even like unto a valley.

11Yea, by the power of his voice doth the awhole earth shake;

12Yea, by the power of his voice, do the foundations rock, even to the very center.

13Yea, and if he say unto the earth—Move—it is moved.

14Yea, if he say unto the aearth—Thou shalt bgo back, that itclengthen out the day for many hours—it is done;

15And thus, according to his word the aearth goeth back, and it appeareth unto man that the bsun standeth still; yea, and behold, this is so; for surely it is the earth that moveth and not the sun.

16And behold, also, if he say unto the awaters of the great deep—bBe thou dried up—it is done.

17Behold, if he say unto this mountain—Be thou raised up, andacome over and fall upon that city, that it be buried up—behold it is done (Helaman 12:8-17.)

If I had faith like dust I know the Lord could do more with me. I find myself lately often thinking of a faith fill phrase of a loving father, "Lord, I believe. Help Thou mine unbelief (Mark 9:24.)
