Happy Sunday! Living in Montana means I am surrounded by mountains, mountains that are beautiful and that I love to hike and explore. The mountains can also be challenging and hard and relentless, sadly taking lives at times. God knows that the "life mountains", the obstacles and challenges, can stop us if we allow them to. He doesn't want the hard things to keep us from going forward. Our obstacles have a purpose, AND even better, God made a way for us through and around and over the mountains--Jesus. God promises to help us and to never leave us, he promises to bring good from bad and to make the way easier for us. Whatever we are facing, Jesus is going ahead of us, leveling the path and protecting us as we face our mountains.
