Ever been thrown a curve ball you didn’t see coming?
Ever knocked down from a kick in the gut of your blind side?
Life’s punches come out of nowhere when you least expect it.
A job loss! Divorce! Financial ruin! The diagnosis!
You turn your back for a second and there it is, Mount Unforeseen,
forcing the climb of your life.
Nothing prepares you for the ascent. There are no guarantees you will summit Unforeseen. It doesn’t matter. Recovery and healing depends on you walking, even if it’s up the side of a mountain.
Every long journey begins with a first step. That foot placed in front of the other, mustering strength as you ignore the weight of your backpack, heavy from the loss of heart and hope. The map of your climb measures a walk around the world; it’s just too much. But it doesn’t matter. You have to care. Your loved ones care. Be encouraged that others have climbed before you and kissed the moon from Unforeseen’s highest peak. Heart and hope are worth that first step. You’re worth it.
BE NOT AFRAID.
A guide will lead you every step of the way. You can trust Him.
He knows the way because “He is the Way…” John 14:6.
“The valleys are dark but there you will be comforted.” Psalms 23:4
DO NOT FEAR.
While conquering mountains seem IMPOSSIBLE in man’s eyes,
“With God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.” Matthew 19:26
You are never alone.” Joshua 1:9
RUN THE RACE
By Lori A Alicea
The miles, the distance that you run,
The finish nowhere near.
From every bend and stretch of road,
For you, your loved ones cheer.
You’re not alone, these miles of steps,
Find strength to run the race.
Your crowd remains the finish line,
Until we see your face.
