Mountains

"And I will make all my mountains a road,
and my highways shall be raised up."
 
Isaiah 49:11
 
 
I don't think anyone is a stranger to a mountain. Big and tall; steep and powerful; I look upon my mountains with trepidation and uncertainty. It is easy -so easy- to become overwhelmed and paralyzed with fear. Honestly, I don't know how I can keep going for one more day. There are so many days that I don't want to fight through another day. I just want to pull the covers over my head and wait for it all to go away. But that really isn't an option. Life is waiting and whatever life I am able to live at the moment, I want to live it all.
 
Last week, I drove. This week, I haven't made it out of the bed except for a doctor's appointment. Ah! It has been disappointing and discouraging. I forget how easy it is to put all my hopes into one really good day. I cherish that good day, nevertheless.
 
I am not sure why I share this journey. I feel like if just one person is facing their mountain and they realize they aren't alone, then this struggle isn't in vain.

I've faced a few mountains myself. With the strength of the Lord though, you are sure to get to the other side. Sometimes some of them take longer to climb than others. Here is a mountain that took me along time to climb, but I finally did make it to the other side.

Thanks for sharing here. It does make a difference for you and for others.

You're doing amazing! And I know that there are tough days,and times it feels too overwhelming...I am findin a technique helpful where I stay in the moment and if I drift ahead in uncertainty or overwhelm I stop amd come back to now. love kxx

Heather:
God places 'mountains' before us so we learn to let Him guide us through.

Great post, Heather. I know your blog + journey is an inspiration to others, and it has been to me. I'm glad you always look for the good in everything - it takes a lot of strength sometimes to do that.
