….mountainsĀ 

I’ve not a lot to say today – shocking and unexpected I knowšŸ˜‰. What I posted on my Facebook page in a 20 second ‘ah-huh‘ moment covers a lot of what I’ve been pondering this week. 

…..Here my moment of ‘ahhh’ …..
Never lose hope…. God is always always at work in and around your life. If you ask Him to show you what He’s doing, He’ll show you a glimpse, a sneak peak of the masterpiece He’s working.

You’re  that masterpiece and ‘ you have been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved‘. Don’t like the sound of it, me neither, and yet at other times I’m totally inspired by it. It all depends on the perspective that hour or minute is taking. This I know without doubt- God may not have caused this mountain and he certainly didn’t push me and cause me to tear my ACL (or any of the other things that are going on in life). That’s down to choices, situations and stupid tree branches played a part in the drawing me into my failed arty photo. But now I have this mountain, it’s assigned to me to overcome it with Him. 

 God does have the know how, wisdom, healing and endurance to get me up and over the mountain I face. For me it’s trusting my knee, learning to walk evenly on both legs again and bending and stretching it without thought, fear or concern. It’s going so slow in my mind, but then I remember I’m only 35 days into a year long recovery according to doctors, physiotherapy and my reading. Realistically, its barely to first base camp on what seems like Everest. 

I don’t know what your mountain is, but God will talk you thru each base camp to the very summit, if you’ll allow Him on the journey. He may not have caused the circumstances but He knows how you feel, respond and what you believe about them in the depths where no one else knows you. He see, He knows, He understands and He wants to walk His with you. 
All to often we call ‘pick me up and drop me on the other side of this‘, but I’m learning step by step, season by season that what you learn on the climb is important for the next mountain climb. There’s always another mountain šŸ¤”

Mountains aren’t always negative, think of the view from the top. You’ll see at the summit, what you never can from the valley. So walk on up, this mountain is for climbing and the view of victory from the top is going to be spectacular!!

Until next time

Happy Pondering
