This week I want to offer a word of encouragement to those of you currently involved in climbing a huge mountain in your life. Remember these three things, maybe, write them down and tape them to your mirror.
1. The people at the top of their mountain have bruised hands and feet.
2. The journey is riddled with pain … pain that is unavoidable only if you completely withdraw from the climb.
3. Moaning, complaining, crying, even praying alone will NOT get you there. Ascension to your glorious mountain peak will take mental and physical effort.
But here’s the wonderful, bright, shining silver lining in all of this …… well, why don’t we save that until in the morning. See you then.
