Not that I would ever attempt this, even if I were the most fearless of souls.
I just thought this photo represents the climb we all face each day if we try to attempt it in our own strength.
Daily trials and compounded struggles can seem utterly insurmountable without the Lord.
I watch and read others out here in the land o' Blog, and I am reminded over and over again that it is only in the strength of our precious Lord and Savior that we can face any of the trials that come our way.
I've come to believe that the Lord looks at trials much like He looks at sin. Sin is all the same to Him. It all separates us from Him, a Holy God.
Trials are all the same to Him as well. He knows they all need to drive us to Him. Each and every trial that comes our way, big or small comes through Him first. Each and every trial needs His fingerprint on it for us to survive it and go on to thrive in our walk with Him.
So, whatever you face today, whatever it is that puts fear in your heart, turn it over to Him. He's waiting on you. He's expecting you, and He is ready to relieve you of that burden you carry.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
"Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging." Psalm 46:2-3
FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real
