Resistance! As a definition it’d be a force that tends to oppose or retard motion. I’d say forward motion for me. I can be honest to say I’ve felt resistance today especially in the way confidence can erode with a few misplaced words.
I moved my keyboard too hard and a vial of mustard seeds fell over on my desk. I had forgotten they were even there. Reaching over, I picked up the glass tube, holding it in my palms, wondering. I was reminded that if I had the faith of these tiny seeds I could move mountains.
A lack of confidence had come against me for something I knew I was supposed to do, but these seeds reminded me it wasn’t my confidence or ability that could do anything. It was my faith that would move mountains.
