Welcome to another Thankful Thursday everyone. What am I thankful for today? I am thankful for the climb. The past few years, my health has really kept me climbing. Due to my diabetes, and my recent strokes, I have been doing quite a bit of mountain climbing. I climb higher, and higher, trying to reach my goal, determined not to fail, or to give up along the way. The mountain seems to get higher, and more rugged with every step. But, I dig in deeper, and continue on. Along the way, some people are cheering me on, praise God. While other people, are trying to convince me to just quit, they say, it is not worth all the effort I am putting into this climb. I ignore those people, I feel they are workers for satan. As I get closer to the top of the mountain, satan keeps setting traps for me, stumbling blocks along my path. Many times, I have slipped along the way, and fallen way back down. But, that is okay. I just dust myself off, get my bearings, and start over. Am I anxious to reach the top, to see the magnificent view from the top, and to commune with my Jesus?? Of course, I am longing to reach the top, cannot wait to see that view, woo hoo!! But, I am already blessed to be communing with my Jesus. You see, He is my constant companion on this climb, when I get tired, He carries me. When I slip along the way, He helps me back up. He supplies my every need, daily. Thank You sweet Jesus. I love You.
