Something to think about.
I read an inspiring story this week about a young man who had a very serious accident. His previous life was out in the wilds and he loved to mountain climb particularly on dangerous and difficult paths.
A car accident left him severely disabled. He could barely walk and that only slowly and carefully. He knew recovery and achieving personal goals could only be obtained by effort. This he did and gradually his strength returned. His story however is not just about mountain climbing. He also made the comment…..”It is the same about my relationship with my Saviour Lord. I need to make an effort to improve this relationship with Him. ‘ The end of this man’s story was not that he ever again climbed the highest mountain. He did achieve many mountaineering goals.
He found a spiritual TRUTH. This is my TRUTH also. The greatest mountains in life you can aspire to when spiritual also require effort. (not physical but in a discipline of desire). ‘I want to know my Lord, More, I want to be CLOSER and CLOSER. ‘ This is about relationship. Then the mountains we can climb and the places we can soar are not achieved by our own WILL or STRUGGLE. Its a God Gift!.
Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength, They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
Rest and Surrender..(living with and in Him) ……..Oh how glorious are the possibilities!
