The Climb

IMG_1005

Grander earth has quaked before
Moved by the sound of His voice
Seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well with me

Far be it from me to not believe
Even when my eyes can’t see

And this mountain that’s in front of me
Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

So let go my soul and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name

It is well with my soul

Whatever that mountain looks like just let God help you overcome it. Let Him help you move it, climb it, not fear it; but enjoy the journey over, around and through.

I’m reaching that point of letting my soul let go and completely trust in Him.

I have been letting this song wash over me for a couple of weeks. (See SongSundays from earlier this month for the video of the song here: https://restoredministriesblog.wordpress.com/2015/01/11/all-is-well/

The timing of finding it couldn’t be more perfect for me as I am in the midst of radically changing my eating habits to restore my immune system, help control food allergies, chronic hives and angioedema.
Well, this craziness has had me reaching; literally crying out to God, to strengthen me as I embark on more life change. He’s already walked me through numerous trials and triumphs, addiction, sorrow, lack of inner peace, desiring love and attention from everyone and everything but Him, and a rocky marriage. He’s walked me through, and clear to the other side in many ways enjoying places of peace, rest, restoration and hope that I am always desiring to share with others. So I had to ask myself once again. Do you trust Him, fully trust Him? Do you believe what His Word says when He says He lives in You? His Power dwells within you?
I finally got my revelation Sunday night as I combed through and studied His Word and journaled pages and pages of His love for me.

I’ve decided, “It is well with my soul.” Let’s dig in God. I desire to trust you with all of me. One of the missing links was making the decision to accept I needed to change this area. Then I reached out to God, crying out, willing to surrender. Seeking Him at every turn. Being vulnerable and getting prayer and encouragement from family and friends.

I’m ready God. Let’s go. I am ready to climb this mountain.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” ~James‬ ‭1‬:‭2-6‬ NIV
