If you’ve been a customer with Strands of Faith for any amount of time, you’ve likely noticed a small gift that comes with every package you receive. A signature of the Strands of Faith brand is receiving this small mustard seed with each purchase. But why a mustard seed some may ask.
Let’s dig more into what the bible says about mustard seeds and faith. A common verse we hear when talking about mustard seed faith is found in Matthew 17:20:
And He *said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
We are called to have faith in all things. But is we realize that even the smallest bit of faith can move mountains, we would realize the power and authority God has given us. Having faith in God. Having faith that all things will work out. Having faith that He is with us through all things. Another of our favorite versus is:
He presented another parable to them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; and this is smaller than all other seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches.
Planting this small seed of faith can grow into something magnificent.
The mustard seed represents so much more than meets the eye for both our Strands of Faith family and our personal faith. Our founder and CEO Ameka Coleman speaks openly about her challenges with hair growth and length retention. She is transparent that her growth did not happen overnight. It is a journey that has taken a lot of faith and patience. The same can be said about the business, Strands of Faith. This business began in a living room, mixing, creating, and shipping products. It has now grown to a warehouse and ships hundreds of orders daily all across the globe.
Ameka’s faith has been woven through her business journey, her personal journey, and the mustard seed serves as a reminder and encouragement to keep the faith. Faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains, bringing you far on your hair journey and even start a business.
We encourage you to keep the seeds as a reminder, share them with friends, or even plant them.
