You can see your hill in the distance. Maybe it isn't a real hill in a neighborhood with mail boxes and houses and trees lining it. Maybe it is unemployment. You feel like you've been on the uphill for long enough, and don't see any other way. Maybe your hill is a marriage, or a child, in crisis. Right now all you see is the hill, and it looks insurmountable.Maybe your hill is an illness that just doesn't quit. There are good days and bad days but the hill is always there. Maybe your hill is loneliness...you are just so doggone tired of doing life by yourself, even if you are surrounded by people. I know that will make sense to someone out there. Maybe you are a little weird, like me, and get excited about the hills, but still find yourself questioning "Why?" about halfway up.
I'm on a bit of a hill right now. Here's what I am thinking:
- Whatever is happening today is somehow preparing me for tomorrow. God has a plan for it.
- The hill might not be as big as I think.
- How I handle the hill is more important than the hill itself.
- Will I trust God to give me the direction and strength to keep climbing?
