Embracing the Mountain


{These graphics are free for you to enjoy}

On May 29, 1953 Edmund Percival Hillary did the unthinkable. After a long hard climb he became the first man to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Personally, I think that’s awesome. I can hardly go up a hill without running out of breath let alone the highest mountain in the world without complaining and feeling like I am going to pass out. Here is how he described his hobby of climbing huge giant mountains:

“When you go to the mountains, you see them and you admire them. In a sense, they give you a challenge, and you try to express that challenge by climbing them.”

I feel like life is a mountain. It is full of curves and at times, we can feel like we are about to fall off. The adversary will do everything in his power to stop us from reaching the prize God has for us and this doesn’t make our “climb” any easier..

God has been teaching me lately that sometimes, I need to embrace the challenges life throws at me. Instead of doubting my abilities, complaining about what’s happening, or praying for God to take my situation away, I need to take my challenges head on because I am more than a conqueror through Christ {Rom. 8:37}.

Throughout the bible I find stories that talk about people who took on challenges and “climbed” their way to success with the help of God. What challenges are you resisting today? What struggles are you facing? Remember that it’s when we reach the top of the mountain that we will truly be able to take a step back, understand the big picture, and admire the view.
