where are you?

"I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?  
My help comes from the LORD
   the Maker of heaven and earth. 
 He will not let your foot slip—    
He who watches over you will not slumber.
Psalm 121: 1-3

The past weekend in the mountains provided a needed break for some current faith testing.  As i walked and thought, i realized i was literally and figuratively in the mountain... not on top of the mountain, not at the valley of the mountain, but in the mountain.  Like my walk, my life was amid the peaks and valleys.  Life was good and enjoyable, yet had some sharp and unwanted turns on what seemed to be an ordinary path. 

As i made the last turn on my walk, i suddenly faced what appeared to be an impossible 45 degree hill. Should i continue or turn around?  Bella and i considered how far we had come. Tired and dragging, we decided to keep going forward.  Taking baby steps and keeping our focus just ahead, provided the strength needed to finish our walk.  The easiest choice would not have been the best choice.  The view from the top was worth the struggle and sweat.

Are you climbing any cumbersome hills? Don't stop, and don't turn around.  Keep your eyes on our Father as you take baby steps. He will not let you slip. You've come too far to miss the spectacular view He has planned for you. 
See you at the top. We will make it, and it will be worth it!  Hew is a God of Wonder and Might.

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
