Climbing Mountains

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday. My daughter drove over from Pensacola for the weekend. I knew about it, but no one else did. Her sister was totally shocked to see her. It was a wonderful surprise.

We went to a luncheon Saturday at my church for a couple of women from the South Florida Freedom Climbers. They discussed climbing any mountain that is put in front of you with God’s help. Matthew 17:20 reads, He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

The Freedom Climbers climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for sex trafficking victims. A couple women on the climb had themselves been sold or sexually abused. Those are horrific obstacles to conquer. However, with God’s help, they were able to accomplish their goal.

What type of mountain is in your way right now? Does it look so huge that you think even God can’t get you through it? If so, you’re wrong. Pray for His help. He’ll either help you climb it or knock it out of your way.

There isn’t anything you can’t get through with God’s help. You’re never alone in adversity. God is standing beside you. Sometimes we can be our worst enemy when it comes to getting through things. We want to fix it or do it our way. However, sometimes it’s just best to stand aside and allow God to do what needs to be done.

If we do that, there’s no mountain we can’t overcome. Even a mountain as large as Mt. Kilimanjaro or something as horrible as sexual abuse.
