Excerpt from Brian Dickinsonby
Whether your mountain is a literal one or not, I believe that God has put each of us on this planet to live a life that is beyond imagination. … Or perhaps your battle is more of an internal one-you want to heal a fractured relationship, or you’re trying to overcome mental and emotional damage you’ve been carrying with you since childhood. Whatever your mountain is-no matter how impossible it seems at times, no matter how many obstacles you face along the way, and not matter how many people tell you it can’t be done-it is possible for you to summit.
My parting words are simple: live life. Create goals, and then chase after them. When you do, be aware of your surroundings and be prepared to alter you goals when unexpected changes come up. Don’t be afraid to fail, and always keep the faith. Whatever it is God has put on your heart to accomplish, I encourage you to push your limits-you never know what you’re truly capable of, and you may just surprise yourself.
When you get discouraged along the way take confidence in these words from Scripture: “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” (Mark 10:27)
And when people ask you if you made it to the top, remind yourself that summit or not, that’s not the most important thing. The most important thing is who you are becoming along the way.
J and I are going on a trip this weekend. The weather outlook is beautiful and J’s folks are here to do chores. I’ll see you back here next week.
