Misty Mountains of Life

Sometimes I find myself ‘looking in that mirror’ forgetting who I saw yesterday~ the standing strong in faith one~ and find myself feeling robbed of it all. But, my God, Who indwells me, calls my name:
Mary, wake up. I am with you. I have called you for a special mission, and my strength grows more powerfully in you each day. Grab hold of my Word; cling to it; digest it, so it becomes part of who you are. Then you will find an indomitable spirit within growing more formidable every day.

Holy Spirit, “Thank You!” You are my Mentor, my Guide, my Teacher:

John 14:26 (AMP)
26 But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor,
Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in My name
[in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf],
He will teach you all things.
And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.

Holy Spirit, my guide, walk me through the misty mountains of my life.  The paths are full of snags and rocks and scree, and vision is blurred. I trust You to lead me  . . .

You have come, You, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity, My God the Three-in-One. Holy God! You came to indwell me to grow me into the person You created me to be. Challenges of life seem to be mountains that need climbing. Currently the picture comes to me from The Hobbit and the “misty mountains”. . .


As I climb the path up the mountain into the mist, it becomes wet and cold. My jacket brings comforting warmth, as Your warm loving comfort surrounds me when the chill winds of rejection try to freeze my soul. As the mist thickens, my view is of whiteness only. Now it is getting scary Holy One. I cannot see where to put my feet, which way to go.





I am willing to walk the path of my life unseeing, with only Your guidance. I trust You. I put one foot out and step down upon clear ground, no rock to knock me off balance. A slight breeze comes up and thins the mist for a short distance ahead, and I can see the path curving to the right. One larger rock protrudes partially blocking the trail. I carefully step around it. Phew! I’m glad that Holy Spirit breeze opened up that way!

Getting closer to the top, the drop offs get scarier. And now the mist closes in again. Think I’ll stop and sit on the side of the mountain a minute. Fear is hiding in the mist attempting to infect my soul: “if you fall off the mountain, it’s a long way down. You can’t see; anything can be ahead~ if you miss a turn you could walk right off a cliff; there are mountain lions up here too. The cold will get more intense and ice could be forming on the trail making it slippery. You are all alone and if you fall no one is here to even know."


I shout, “Enough! Holy Spirit is right here with me; He is leading me and He loves me. Yes Holy Spirit loves me personally and deeply! I can feel Him smiling at me with love. I trust Him to be my guide into the unseen future.” Encouragement fills my spirit as I stand and take the next step. I trust Holy Spirit’s leadership and love for me.

I don’t know how much time has passed. Tiredness is beginning to blanket my body. Time has been speeding up more and more, and in the blankness of the mist it seems irrelevant; but thankfully,  I can feel the closeness of my God and lean into His promises to always be with me~

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NKJV)
And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you.
He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you;
do not fear nor be dismayed.”

Listening to His gentle nudges I patiently make my way through the whiteness. My hands feel an emptiness to my right. What is it? I reach down, my hand finds some pebbles and I toss them to my right. They hit ground and rock~ a cave? Slowly my hands begin to explore and my feet follow. I sense Holy Spirit’s approval. Smiling I discover it is indeed a cave like structure, a resting place. I sit thankfully and a peace fills my spirit. Holy Spirit has led me to His place into Jesus’s rest. My eyes close as I breathe a sigh of relief.
