The Mountian Doesn’t Change

Every year at the same time a man climbs a great mountain near his home. He did this year after year never wavering. It was a challenging climb when he was young and as he got older it became even more difficult. The route up the mountain was all too familiar as he made his way up the mountain face, sometimes narrowly escaping death.
One year after he had grown older and was preparing to make the climb once more, a young man asked, “why are you climbing the mountain at your age with all the danger involved?” The old man replied,”Because even though the mountain never changes, I change every year, and every year I’m different from the last.” He went on to say,” Sometimes the climb is uneventful with little excitement, but sometimes the climb is almost too great and I barley make it to the top. If I can climb this mountain each year, I know for that year there is no other challenge too great.”
Every year we as Christians climb mountains. Sometimes, they are the same mountain over and over. Our mountains range from family issues to financial troubles but they sometimes seem insurmountable in our lives. We struggle with little problems and complain about issues that are small boulders in our paths while traveling through life. Sometimes challenges seem impossible to overcome and too difficult, once past them we stop and wonder why we were so worried.
We as Christians have one more advantage; we never have to climb our mountains alone. We have Jesus Christ alongside us giving us a hand at every turn or twist. He encourages us and is our greatest advocate, he makes every climb a victory in our lives and gives us confidence, there is no challenge too great!
