I’m not much for rock climbing.  Actually, I’m not really the active, outdoorsy type.  I love to be outside, breathing in fresh air and allowing a gentle, cool wind to brush against my cheeks while I listen to the leaves crunch underneath my feet.  But rock climbing is not my idea of fun.

Sometimes, God calls us to climb.

I am learning that the higher I go, the easier it is to breath and the clearer it is to see. Getting to the top though, is often met with resistance, fear, exhaustion and feelings of wanting to turn back and run to lower ground.

Soon winter’s chill will set in and cover the ground with its freshly fallen snow. For me, winter is a season I do not look forward to. The cold and snow are nice for a while, but the long, dark days soon grow weary on my restless soul.

This chapter brought so much emotion out of me this week. I’ve been looking at my own “precipice” (a very steep rock face or cliff, typically a tall one) and wondering if I have the strength and faith to ascend the mountain. I am in awe, continually, as to God’s timing in my re-reading of this book. Every chapter so correlates to where I am on my own journey. I can almost feel the hands of Sorrow and Suffering on either side as they come along side of me on this journey.
