Will We Climb The Mountain?


Will We Climb The Mountain?

Those mountains we come across
As we journey through life,
We stop beneath and wonder
If we can climb that high
We come to the conclusion
It's beyond what we can bear,
So we decide not to try it
And choose to stay right there

So we stay just where we are
Unproductive for the Lord
Not moving into what He has
Unaware He has much more
How can God ever use us
If we don't want to move
If we stay hiding in a corner
With no kingdom work to do?

God desperately wants for us
To go deeper into Him
To conquer all our mountains
And have His life within
To get out of the rut
That is holding us back
And develop a deeper faith
Where we had sorely lacked

Those mountains that we came across
Are there to challenge us
To keep us ever trusting God
And relying on His love
For each step we take with God,
He reminds us, He is there,
We need not run away and hide
Nor cower in faithless fear

But step out boldly in total trust
As hard as it may be
For we will never grow in God
Nor come to ever see
Just what lies beyond the mountain
And all God wants to show
If we don't rise to conquer it,
We shall never come to know.
~ M.S. Lowndes ~



I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the LORD,
which made heaven and earth.
~ Psalm 121:1,2 ~




Have a blessed Lord's Day!

I love psalm 121, so meaningful. When my husband was in hospital some years ago, I read it to him often.

Beautiful poem, Stephanie. So true, we need to climb that mountain (with God's help) in order to have the best of what God has planned for us, and to become more like Him, rather than hiding in the valley below.

Did you take any of those pictures? Breathtaking!

Also, just a reminder that "Making Your Home Sing Monday" linky party is live and ready for your posts!

It is sometimes scary to go ahead and climb that mountain, but in the end it is so great to see just how awesome our God really is.

Thank you dear Stephanie for sharing this touching poem. xo

Another beautiful post Stephanie!
Your photos are terrific! The cross turned out wonderful in deed.

A good reminder for us to continue climbing the mountain. Hard as it may seem at times, we must continue up ward and on ward.

I trust you are having a blessed Lords day!

Love you!
