Those of you who have visited us here in Saltillo know what a breath-taking view of the mountains I have from my front windows. I was so happy that the Lord and my husband provided me a home with a mountain view. I’ve thought: “If I could just wake up and see those mountains every morning, it would keep me going..” and it has been wonderful.
But this morning I awoke and walked to the double doors and balcony off our upstairs bedroom and as is typical on a cloudy rainy day here in Saltillo, I couldn’t see “my” mountain. All I could see was white clouds and fog and drizzling rain coming down to hide my glorious view.
But, I know my mountain’s still there and when the clouds lift, it will again be there to encourage me to “lift my eyes to the hills from whence cometh my help – my help comes from the Lord.”
The devil is sending rain, clouds and fog right now; he is on a fast track to discourage me and to distort my view of God’s presence and help in my life. But I know if I keep trusting, one day soon those clouds are going to lift and my view will be undistorted again. All this because I know He’s still there – He hasn’t moved…. just like “my” mountain.
