During my hike through the Smoky Mountain trails I felt inspired by The Lord to share about the various seasons we walk through in our lives. Sometimes going through the journey is great; it’s amazing. Just like going up a difficult trail. You feel amazing, energized and encouraged. It was all worth it to get to the top! But just as we walk with Christ through different seasons sometimes we experience pain and difficulty after those mountain top moments.
We have to push through in order to get to the next part the lord has for us. If we stay still and refuse to move we’ll just be stuck in the woods. Spiritually and emotionally you’ll be stuck if you don’t push passed the pain, get up and move. The only option is to move forward. You know what’s behind you. You’ve been there. But you have to move forward into the unknown in order to get out of the pain you’re in now.
“Strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said. -Acts 14:22 NIV
We all need to hear this as we walk with God. The encouragement through the hard times to remain steadfast and continue believing in what we know is the Truth. Stay in it; Continue on the path that he has you on. Our God never fails and never disappoints. Have faith, he’s leading you towards something great!
Blessing In The Journey
For me, that day, the something great happened to be an amazingly gorgeous waterfall that made it more than worth it. After nine miles of hiking and sweating, he blessed me to witness one of his beautiful and remote creations such as this. Our God is awesome!!
