But God...

My hometown in Texas may be flat, but I've been seeing a lot of mountains lately. I'm not talking about the picturesque kind with grassy fields and breathtaking views. I'm talking about the hard, cold, ragged mountains that loom over us when we least expect them. Several of my friends and I are all standing at the base of our mountain wondering how to get over it. There are marital mountains, financial mountains, faith mountains...you name it. Funny how no matter what kind of mountain, they all still look the same. And they all can be overwhelming.

Some are gearing up to take on the challenge. While others are feeling completely defeated by it. My situation felt overwhelming until God reminded me that I'd been here before. The mountain may have risen from a new scenario but the end result will still be the same.

I didn't value myself but God brought a man into my life to remind me that I'm loved. I was entrenched in my sin but God redeemed me and made me clean. I was a newer believer but God put me in a position of leadership and continues to work through me. I didn't have a lot of marketable skills but God provided a job for me. I didn't have anything to say but God gives me His words. I thought that no one would listen but God brought you to read this today.

The mountain ahead of you may seem momentous but God...

Be blessed,
Jennifer
