Day 4: See the Blessings

40 days Transformation and Change of Heart
Day 4: See the Blessings

When you hike to Mountain peaks usually at the summit there is a U.S Geological Survey Marker- and you know you have arrived to the highest peak of the mountain. Here's where you usually take the photo from the top and kiss the mark- ahh great feeling- 
You made it! 
But, what about those "Mountains" we climb in life? 
The "financial hardship mountain", the "Relationship Mountain" or the "Illness, stress, depressed, or lose your faith mountains"?
What Bench Markers tell us we've arrived? 
The uphill climb has ended we are at the top of this mountain!
Take the photo and enjoy the view. 
Soak in that 'Yippee we've made it' great feeling!
Those markers are not so noticeable, tangible or anchored down like the geological survey marker. 
They come in whispers "You're not alone" 
or the courage to pick yourself up for another day of uphill climb. 
They may be the support of a love one,
God speaking though scripture and prayer.
Or even an unexpected big hug or smile
I promise they are there!
We need our gratitude eyes, and open heart to see them.

He marked the path and led the way,
And ev'ry point defines
To light and life and endless day
Where God's full presence shines.
                                  - Eliza R. Snow 

 "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings; that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good; that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth"  Isaiah 52:7
