    Mountain Top

    July 7, 2017
    by Cassidy Burton, Bramalea Alliance Church

    On the last day of our trip we had the experience to climb up a mountain. At the top we had some time to reflect on our own life. Climbing up the mountain was a difficult task; it was both physically and mentally tiring: not knowing whether your body could actually make it up to the peak and the worry of falling down. Climbing up took us around an hour where as when we came down the mountain it took us around just 5 minutes. It reminded me of a song called Hills and Valleys. What I took from the experience was that the climb up the mountain was difficult and tiring much like how it is hard to get rid of the struggle and sin in one’s life. Whereas running down the mountain was easy and fast much like how it is to lose sight of God and to get distracted by Earthly things. But just like in the song it talks about how no matter whether you are at the top of the mountain or in the bottom of the valley, God continues to be there with you. It is important to remember if we don’t continue to take time to be in God’s word and to keep him as our main focus; how easy it is to get stuck in that valley. But the good news is that God never leaves during the hard times and with the help of God we can make that climb to the top of the mountain.

    Hi Cassidy, how sharp your insight is! I totally agree with your spiritual insight, no matter we are at top of mountain or bottom of valley, we have to be focus on our Heavenly Father.

    It is so exciting to hear about all that God is teaching you and the team through your time in Trujillo. My prayer for you is as you return to Canada, and the culture and routines you are use to, that you will not soon forget all that God has taught you through your time in Peru.

    Climbing up a mountain is difficult and tiring. However, staying up at the top without falling down is not always easy without God's help especially His wisdom. We will pray for the Peru team's safe trip home and their continuous growth of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
