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.
