Only A Mountain

Another day, another fight
It always feels like an uphill climb
Another step, another mile
The story of your life

You’ve gotta find a second wind
It’s not as high as you think it is
Don’t give up and don’t you quit
You gotta climb if you wanna win

This is only a mountain
You don’t have to find your way around it
Tell it to move, it’ll move
Tell it to fall, it’ll fall
It’s only a mountain

I hope this song and its lyrics will encourage you today.

Life has a way of bringing what seem to be mountains into the path of where you are and where you feel your happiness lies. Those mountains can look mighty tall, I’ll attest to that from personal experience. But you’ll make it. Like the song says, it’s not as high as you think it is.

And remember, you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you (Phil 4:13) so hang in there. Choose to find the joy in the moment you’re in, even though it may be hard to do it. It will serve you well, and that mountain will start looking a lot smaller before you know it.

Have a good day.

It’s Your Choice

Perhaps you’re facing a difficult situation right now. Maybe you’ve been dealt a hand you feel isn’t fair or feel like you’re fighting an uphill battle. You’re looking at it as a bad deal, and one that doesn’t seem to have any upside to it.

No matter what it might be, the situations we encounter in our lives are neither good nor bad – they only become one of those two as a result of how we view them. Regardless of whether or not you’ve chosen your situation, you always get to choose how you look at it.

You Can Do Everything

Yes, you read that correctly. You can do everything.

Not many things. Not some things. Not just one or two things. Not everything except the one thing you think you can’t do. Nope, believe it or not you can do EVERYTHING.

Here’s why I believe that and also why I am writing this today:

Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”

This may be my favorite verse in the Bible. I need to hear it – often. To me it’s a reminder that no problem, no stressor, no fear, no worry, no situation, no trouble…nothing…is too much to overcome when God is in control.

I don’t know what it is about us as humans but we all (myself very much included) have this desire to be in control. I have been reminded over and over and over again that it just doesn’t work out very well when we try to have total control over our lives. I could list countless examples of this both in my life and in the lives of others.

And so, I just thought I would share that verse today. Maybe you’re struggling with something and don’t feel like you have the ability to get through it, get past it, get over it, or get around it. I hope you’ll feel otherwise after reading that verse.

I’d also like to share the following song as a reminder of what faith can do. Have a great day today and remember, as the song says, impossible is not a word. Nothing is impossible. You can do everything. God has all the strength you need to get through anything in life. All you have to do is ask.
