The Poconos....Appalachian Trail....Rocky Mountains....Mountains of Maui...oh the majesty and grandeur of God's beautiful creations! Couple those with surfing and relaxing beside the waves of the mighty oceans! Sheer delight! :)
Mountains of debt, anxiety, disease, disability, and trials are never chosen as weekend getaways. We endure these mountains. Limp up them.
Waves of doubt and fear, anger and mistrust ruin lives. And waves of hurricane force destroy the tranquil scenes we treasure at the beach.
We all face mountains and waves of varying degrees....at many times throughout life. Hopefully, your friend can take the journey with you, yet in Christ, you are never alone. Keep your eye on God. He will carry you up the scary, difficult mountains, He will show you a beautiful view from the peak, and then He will let you ski down to safety.
"Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, His holy mountain. Beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth," Psalm 48:1,2
