Currently on my daily walk, I see the picturesque allegory of mountain moving faith. Many people doubt that faith can move mountains. Me, I have beheld it. I know it is as true as holding and sensing the touch of my child’s hand in mine.
Each day as I walk, the mountainside to the west is being excavated. Gigantic machines tear into the hillside, scooping away tons of dirt, rock and foliage. Every day the mountain is gradually being leveled.
Mountain moving faith... hum? Fact or fiction? Wishful thinking or an undeniable reality?
The power of faith can erupt with a seismic force that can level the obstacles of life like a mountain melting like wax. Changing circumstances in an instant - God makes the impossible possible. However, most of the time, faith in action is a process. Daily, our faith whittles away adversity. Gradually, faith shifts the mountain of despair by digging into its insurmountable height, leveling its obstructive and overwhelming elevation. And like the landscape being shaped by the earth moving machinery, God is making a way for you and me.
We may not be able to see above the summit that lords over us, but God can. Have no fear, God’s mighty arm can reach into the greatest of barriers and eliminate them. Soon the mountainous scenery I see every day will make way for homes, businesses, playgrounds and schools. A location where people can live, prosper and grow, a resting spot of security and refuge, a place to abide. If we continue to daily walk in faith, we will discover our predestined refuge, our God crafted place to abide and grow. And in this place we can be hidden in the cleft of His Rock, knowing there ain’t no mountain high enough, that faith cannot have it removed, leveled or possibly completely annihilated- for nothing can separate us from the powerful force of God’s love.

I am currently reviewing a book on the philosophy and psychology of loneliness. (I have to keep my dictionary app on...haha)
Anyway, I love Aristotle's description of God the "Unmovable Mover"
Think on that concept for awhile... God remains the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Nothing shakes Him, or surprises Him...HE is the Great I AM. Yet, HE is able to change our world, our heart in an instant. HE truly is marvelous! #randomthoughts #God #Ilovebeingareviewer
Light is the absence of darkness. One small flame, one slight flicker hollows out darkness, it weakens its strength. Light overcomes the power of darkness.
The lights of Christmas are so soothing. Whether young or old, they mesmerize the observer. Set within the backdrop of darkness, these sparkling wonders stop and make us behold their illumination. Children gaze at the twinkling lights on the tree. They coo, giggle, clap their little hands with awe at the shimmering radiance. As I walk the neighbor at night, I can see the glow of Christmas beaming from each doorway and balcony. This sight is so welcoming; I can’t help but smile, a smile that only Christmas brings.
Centuries later, the story of the Magi led by a mysterious light still holds true. “When they saw the star, they were thrilled with ecstatic joy.” (Matthew 2: 10) Mankind longs to find the source of such a glorious light - A light that guides. A light that dawns eternal. A light that shines in the midst of darkness. A light that radiates hope, dispelling despair. A light that glistens, bringing unfathomable joy. A light that beckons anticipation- a lighthouse of expectation. A light that a never loses its illumination. An unquenchable light that can never be snuffed out.
The birth of Jesus Christ heralded – “the Light has come.” This Christmas, don’t be afraid to step into the glorious presence of the Light. Bask in its brilliance, until it fills you with peace, joy and resilient hope.
“A Light from on high will dawn upon us and visit us. To shine upon and give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to direct and guide our feet in a straight line into the way of peace.” Luke 1: 78b-79 AMP #randomthoughts #exposed
