One More Mountain – a poem about trials

I have so many friends suffering through the trials of cancer and other health-related problems, I wanted to share with you about a time in my life when it seemed there was nothing but difficulties.

One More Mountain

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.

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.
