I See... Moving Mountains

The power to move mountains.  God has it and shares it occasionally with carefully chosen servants possessing the sure faith to believe it exists.  I am not one of those. I believe in the power of God, but my faith in His power to move mountains relies on secondhand belief in firsthand scriptural accounts of such miracles.  Like many other miracles, I have a difficult time logically figuring out the mechanics of how it is done.  On the surface, it defies known laws of physics and nature.     

Ask someone who has consecrated their will to God and taken advantage of the healing power of the Atonement to root out the wicked spirit of serious sin in their heart, however, and you may hear a different story.  In their eyes, after having personally experienced the truly awesome power of the Atonement to save them from their sins, moving a few mountains in the course of doing the Lord’s work seems completely logical and reasonable.  They too don’t understand the mechanics of how the miracle of forgiveness occurs, but they have witnessed firsthand the cleansing power of the Atonement.  In other words, after spiritual mountains have been moved in their own lives, why not move a few tangible mountains around in the name of Lord when required?
