“But God, when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Oh give me the strength to be able to sing
It is well with my soul”
-Mercy Me ‘Even if’
I heard this song, immediately downloaded it, and have had it on repeat for the past few days. It seems like everywhere I look there are “unmovable mountains”. Whether those are in my life, or in others, it seems like the ‘faith of a mustard seed’ that it takes to move mountains has been accidently taken out with the trash.
God makes us face what we fear, what we are inadequate in, and what will prepare us for the future. I wonder though if I’m like Israelites going around the same mountain one too many times. How do we distinguish between the mountains that God chooses to keep in unmoved, versus the mountains that we are suppose to move through. Again, where is my yellow sticky note from God telling me exactly what I should do? (Jokes!) But seriously, I have come across mountain after mountain and while I think I’m navigating through the terrain okay, I wonder if I am going through these trails with the right gear. I have on my best heels, and I’ve always managed to do just about anything in heels. But maybe sometimes we have to change our shoes to go through this terrain of crazy.
I’ve always picked heels over hiking boots, and I doubt that will change. I just hope my heels will hold up during this season. And if not, then I will still be able to say “It is well with my soul”, even in hiking boots.
