Ps 90:2 Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, you are God.

            Some days we feel this mountain we call life is too hard to climb. But we need to remember who made the mountains. As a teenager, I lived south of the Alps. Mt Blanc/Monte Bianco is the highest peak at 15,776 feet and known as the birthplace of modern mountaineering. Another popular mountain was Matterhorn at 14,692 feet which is in the Monte Rosa area. It was about two hours from our apartment. On a clear day, I could see it in the west as the sun set.

            A mountain climber looks for the best way, not necessarily the easiest, to reach a goal. I went through many trials and hardships. When things became too difficult, I remembered the mountains and took courage that God made the mountain, and he made me. If he loved me enough to bring me this far, I knew he would get me through the rest of my life. How do you climb a mountain? One step at a time, but take God with you.

            Everyone has mountains to climb; perhaps an exam in school, difficulty in a marriage or a devastating diagnosis from a doctor. Whatever the mountain in your life, God will be there and help you climb it one step at a time. If we look at the whole problem, it becomes insurmountable. If we break it down into manageable parts, we find the courage to go forward. Let God show you how to break it down. He already sees the whole mountain. Remember, he made the mountains, and he made you.
