We've been going through some of those Goliath Moments lately. And so it was no surprise when during our move, I "just happened" to come across a few of Grandmother's poetry books. In one of these books I found a few carefully placed post-it notes tagging special poems for later reading. One of the poems hit on the exact topic we were discussing the night before as we continued to pack and move things about. The inspiration was in perfect timing and so greatly needed that day. In true fashion, in her own special way, Grandmother had given an encouraging nudge of hope from heaven to let us know that she was standing with us. Notice the mention of moving mountains...
"Climb 'Til Your Dreams Come True" by Helen Steiner Rice
Often your tasks will be many,
And more than you think you can do...
Often the road will be rugged
and the hills insurmountable, too...
But always remember,the hills ahead
Are never as steep as they seem,
And with Faith in your heart upward,
And climb 'til you reach your dream,
For nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it
And you have the Faith to believe...
For Faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill
And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God's wisdom and will...
For Faith is a mover of mountains,
There's nothing that God cannot do,
So start your today with Faith with in your heart
And "Climb 'Til Your Dreams Come True!"
"...If thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believes"
~ Mark 9:23
Thank you, Grandmother, for your encouragement and love (:
