What If This Mountain’s Just Too High

Daily Prompt: Can’t Drive 55 – Take the third line of the last song you heard, make it your post title, and write for a maximum of 15 minutes. GO! (I think I’ll ignore the 15min rule though!)

This is not the last song I heard earlier this evening, but it is the one that stuck in my mind when I read this prompt, having heard the song only minutes before, when I searched the lyrics and found that this was the third line of the song, it just really summed up how I was feeling this last  weekend.

WHAT IF THIS MOUNTAIN’S JUST TOO HIGH?

I guess that was how I was looking at things on Sunday, seeing things as a problem that was insurmountable, just loosing that bit of faith in the power of prayer and God’s perfect timing.

Matthew 17:20 (NIV)

He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

It’s just a gentle nudge, keep faith in God.

Since Sunday I’ve been out walking every morning, I have to say I am really loving it again, I let it become a bit of chore for a while and let things slip.  But in doing so I lost that time with God, that walk every morning to think things through, to pray and to worship, I lost that, but now I have it back and I’ve realised how much I’ve missed it, all those doubts and moments of despair I’ve fell into over the last few weeks could have been so different.

Get up get up 
brush off the dust from your soul
Get up get up
the past is beyond your control
Get up get up
don’t ever give up on love

The whole song has a great message and one of relevance to me.

GET UP by CIRCLESLIDE
What if I told you I wasn’t ready for this life
What if I told you this wasn’t what I had in mind
What if this mountain’s just too high

Get up get up 
brush off the dust from your soul
Get up get up 
the past is beyond your control
Get up get up
don’t ever give up on love

What if I told you my whole world broke down last night
What if showed you my surprising ugly side
What if I’ve fallen out of line

Get up get up 
brush off the dust from your soul
Get up get up 
the past is beyond your control
Get up get up
don’t ever give up on love

What if I told you there was time when I believed
What if I told you I’m exploding with doubt I’m infected with weakness
I’m breaking the silence crying out, crying out

Get up get up 
brush off the dust from your soul
Get up get up 
the past is beyond your control
Get up get up
don’t ever give up on love
