I may not see in front of me, But I can see for miles around when I look over my shoulder, and Lord, it`s clear. You`ve brought me here, So faithful every step of the way. What can I do but follow you, For You are the Way, the Truth, the Life, And You`ve promised never to leave me, My Savior, my friend, From beginning to end.

I Am Found In You by Steven Curtis Chapman

Just a few notes of encouragement. Mustard Seed Thoughts
Thank you for today's thought and verse. Sometimes it's hard to remember that no matter what our country does to disgrace God, He is still in control. I have to keep believing that God is using all these terrible things that our country practices for His honor and glory. Thank you for your daily devotion.

I intended to write this yesterday but time seemed to get away from me. I just wanted to write and let you know that I enjoy your mustardseed thoughts each day they are a real blessing to me. I can't tell you how many times they have lifted me up. They always really get me to thinking. You are a blessing to me as well as many others keep up the good work. May God richly bless you and once again thank you for the encouragement you send out each day.

I just want you to know that I appreciate each day's little seeds. It's the first mail I open to ponder. A super ministry, keep up the good work. Have a terrific day.

Hiya, I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to write a daily devotional. I know that its probably hard work making a devotional every single day, but I just wanted to tell you thanks. I usually read it as soon as I get home from school at 12... and many days, It's been just what I needed to read for that day. God Bless You!!!

I love this stuff. You are providing a wonderful service for everyone. Gob has blessed me with you.
Thank You, Paul Feighan

You talk about fasting in your "Mustard seeds" today. I am going through some great change and troubles in my life and rebuilding my relationship with God is something I desperately want to do. I have heard about fasting but I really don't know how to do it. Are you praying continuously? What are people really doing? I would be of tremendous help, I'm sure to many others as well as myself if you could actually give instructions on what to do and how to do it with out putting our health in jeopardy while doing it. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

I just wanted to thank you for your thoughts. They are both timely and thought provoking. They really brighten my day to find one in my mailbox in the morning before I begin my day. It is a great addition to my meditation and time with the Lord. Thank you!!
Love and Prayers,

You have developed a good theme. The parallels between Father and Son (relating to the reader) and between each of us and God is an excellent illustration. Everyone relates to that, and let's fac it, so many people don't really relate to an established relationship with God. Very good!!!

I just want to tell you what a blessing your daily readings are...I start my day with them each morning, they have truly been a blessing to my heart. Continue the good work for our Lord Jesus. You are touching hearts
In His name, bless you, Vikki

Thanks Ron for that thought, it has put laugher in my Life!!!!! God is truly is Good!!! He knows what we need and when we need it.... Praise Him!!!

Dear Ron,

First let me say that I love your mustard seed thoughts. They are a daily reminder of my Lord and his need to be ever present in my life. I especially like the way you add scripture with a nineties flair and a sense of humor. I usually forward them on to my friends and family enjoy them as well...

...My prayer concerns are that I can be a light to show HIS love to all those around me. I hope that I can give God's love away to all those around me. Also, I need prayer for my comittment to spend quiet time in prayer with God. Thank you for your time and your concern on my life. Keep up the good work!

Brother Ron, this is from Lois and Jim Huddle. We asked you way back in November if we could print your thoughts in our church paper and you gave us the ok. We have used one every month since and it has been a blessing to us and our church. You will never know how much we appreciate what you have done for us. We just wanted to take the time and thank you and hope other people get as muck good out of it as we do. Keep up the good work and God bless you for it and we both know you can not out give God.
-- Love In Christ, Lois and Jim

Tell your friends about this ministry. Why not forward a copy of the email to those you think might benefit from reading a Mustard Seed? Some churches use it as a supplement to their discipleship program. Perhaps your church would be interested in doing this. All I ask is that credit be given to the ministry. If you need help or have questions, please email me at
