Active faith includes speaking and doing. When Jesus cursed the fig tree, He spoke to it. He did not just believe that it would dry up from the roots and die. He believed and commanded it to dry up from the roots and die. He spoke His desired result. He then commanded His disciples to do the same thing, except that He gave them a much bigger example – a mountain.
We do not realize that faith is released into the world by speaking, very much like I did when I saw when growing up in Kenya, I saw hope that my vision was not restrained to the fables and stories about giants who lived in mountains beyond. I felt a surge of hope, future. I felt a sense of ‘bigness outside myself’, a sense of the majesty of the world around us, and of just how small we are, in comparison to the big picture ahead and around us.I saw my life branching out before me like the fern trees . From the tip of every branch, there before me was my future beckoning.. I saw myself going places for studies and I believed it. Each and every day of my life in Kenya has given birth to today. It has been years since I left Kenya, now I am living in Canada,I live the hope created in those humble Kenyan years.
I bring hope to all of you fighting battles alone. To all of you going against the grain, battling the naysayers I stay strong! Keep going, keep believing! is walk is hard. But the hardest walks lead to the greatest destinations. The toughest climbs always lead to the best view. It WILL be worth it in the end.And if you show what you are made of, the RIGHT people will show up in your life. You have qualities only few can admire, because most don’t possess. You have strength only few can understand, because most have never experienced.
