One More Mountain – A Poem about Struggles for Christians

One more mountain. Christians experience struggles in life just like everyone else. The difference is that we have a source of help in the Lord to see us through, giving us strength and building our character. I have struggled through chronic pain for many years. God gave me this poem in a time of particular distress. My prayer is that it will encourage you. I would love to hear your comments!

One More Mountain

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:2-3

One More Mountain - scripture

I’m tired and weary, and I need a rest,

But, dear Lord, I know that You always know best.

When I’m battle-weary and feel alone,

When I beg for bread but it seems like a stone.

I know there is something You are working in me—

There is something new You have to show me.One More Mountain - Dollarphotoclub_57669021

There is something I haven’t become just yet,

There is some other challenge I’ve not ever met.

You’ve carried me through so many before—

Lord, help me now to face one more.

When I look in the mirror I want to see

A reflection of You looking back at me.

So once more, Lord, pick me up and let’s go—

So I never forget how I need you so.

And I have the feeling that when this one is through,

I’ll see, just beyond, there is something else new.

So thank You, Lord for not forgetting me,

For never letting me rest till it’s You that I see.
