Sometimes we find ourselves at the bottom of mountains:
a mountain of sins that need to be corrected;
a mountain of things that need to be achieved;
or even a mountain of self-refinement that needs to occur.
At first, we may attempt to jump over the mega-mountains of life,
but this only causes us to fall back to where we started,
with nothing more than skinned knees and hurt palms.
This leaves us at the bottom of the mountain,
staring upward through tear-blurred eyes,
trying to figure out how we are going to make it to the out-of-sight peak.
The keys to this reoccurring dilemma are submission and patience.
