Many times I’ve sung “For Every Mountain” by Kurt Carr during worship, needing the assurance the task before me was attainable, like those prior, through the grace of God I’d somehow conquered. Mountains are synonymous with a CHALLENGE. Whether it’s the challenge of mountain climbing and those who’ve heroically endured the elements to accomplish such a feat, those despite their valiant efforts who’ve succumbed to said elements or the challenge of a spiritual or internal mountain that would require an equal amount of heroic effort to overcome. Its beauty is inviting, its mystic draws you in as it basks in its own glory where you’d forget how daunting the challenge could become. The beauty of this beast makes you forget about those who’ve attempted and failed, you embrace the risks, willing to shoot your shot. Perfectly embodying life, a portrait of the peaks and valleys along its way, the reassurance of fresh waters to sustain you, a reminder that trouble doesn’t last always. For EVERY mountain you face, remember those you once thought were insurmountable……….
