I will lift my eyes to the mountains-where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
Have you ever hiked to the top of a mountain? It may have been a struggle to get there. Maybe during the hike you weren’t sure if you’d even get to the top. Tiredness sets in, you’re thirsty, hungry and unsure if you’ll even get to the top.
But then there’s THAT moment. You know exactly the one I am talking about. You take your final step and there you are at the top. The view is breathtaking. Every pain and doubt you just had are quickly gone. You get to see that beauty that God created and you experience a view you couldn’t have even imagined just moments ago.
That’s exactly how I envision my life with God. Sometime’s things get tough. It may feel like I will never get through it or get to “the top.” Then, I look up to Him and suddenly my perspective changes. The fear and doubt is gone because I choose to look up to God and trust Him. I challenge you to stop in the midst of your struggle. Look up to God and remember that He is always with you and will guide you to the top of any mountain. After all, we know that the view WITH Him is absolutely breathtaking.
