Looking Past the Mountains
Whether we realize it or not, we are always thinking about the future. Either about what to do tomorrow, or plans for the next five years. But what kind of thoughts do we have about the future? Thoughts from the enemy or revelation from God?
God is always talking to us about our future. ‘There is good right around the corner’ and ‘Don’t worry, the best is yet to come’. This painting brings feelings of hope, peace, and excitement for the future. I know that once I reach past those mountains, I will see what I have always dreamed to see. But getting there isn’t going to be easy.
There will be dark days on the road, but not too dark because my Dad is with me. Some days will be long, but not lonely because my Dad will always be there to encourage me and keep me company. And when the day comes and I face the dogs of doom, I can look right into the eyes of my Heavenly Father and know that these dogs aren’t as terrifying as they look.
As I endure the journey and stay in the presence of the one who is always with me, I will reach those mountains and stand in awe of all I have fought for, all the while rejoicing in the strengthened relationship with my God.
And so it’s the same for you- day by day walk the journey with your Heavenly Father, and one day, it will be you looking past those mountains, straight at those things who have only hoped for in your wildest dreams.
