Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Tuesday to you all! I pray that your day is off to a good start…and even more, I pray that you will come to see that there is One who longs to reach out and help you through each day…One whose name is Jesus Christ…Amen!!
You know…there is one thing that I have truly come to see, throughout this life I’ve lived…and that is how our circumstances can seem like mountains…mountains that can feel almost impossible to get over.
As we stand before the circumstances we face…we look up and before we know it; we have already convinced ourselves that we will never make it. As we look at what stands before us…the path ahead seems almost impassable and the height of these mountainous circumstances seem to convince us that there is just no way we can even begin to get over what appears to be impossible to climb.
Before we know it…we find ourselves sitting at the base of these mountainous circumstances…ready to give into what stands before us…never thinking; that there is One, who can help us overcome these moments that seem so impossible.
There is a Bible verse in Isaiah 41:13; that has been of great hope to me, during the trying times in my life…and we read… “For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.”
One thing we must remember; is that we are never alone. Even though we face mountainous circumstances that seem so overwhelming to us; there is a God, who longs to take us by the hand and guide us safely over these rough and rugged moments of despair…but in order for that to happen, we must be willing to take hold of God’s hand; so He can help us and give us the strength, to climb over these mountainous circumstances.
Also…we must remember that we not only have to let God help us; but we need to look at these mountainous circumstances through His eyes and not our own…and how do we do that? First, we need to realize that it’s not how fast we climb over these mountainous circumstances; but it’s what we learn through the climb. In other words…if we are in too big of a hurry; then this difficult climb won’t count for anything in our lives. We need to not only take hold of God; but we need to let Him teach us new things…and allow Him to strengthen us through this rough and rugged journey.
The next thing we need to do; is to quit focusing on how difficult the journey is…for when we do this; then our minds and hearts become sidetracked, from the things that God longs for us to learn along the way.
One thing I can say for sure about my life; is that I have learned much, through the rough and rugged mountains I’ve traveled through…which has allowed what I’ve learned, to be embedded with my heart…and even to this day…these things I’ve learned over time…continue to help me, when I face other mountainous circumstances.
No matter what kind of a mountain stands before you…don’t give up…and don’t try to climb it alone. Turn to a God, whose strength and loving presence, will take you by the hand…to guide you through, what seems so impossible; that you too may learn and grow and become stronger, for other mountainous circumstances that Satan may place before you…AMEN!!
Well…I have really enjoyed this time with you…and these words have truly been of inspiration to my own heart! I pray that your day will be surrounded by the One, who longs to help you through each mountainous circumstance you may face! Take care…have a great Tuesday…and I will see you soon!
Many…many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
