Today’s thought – The Mountain Climber

Good Morning

1 Kings 19:11
And he said, Go forth,
and stand upon the mount before the Lord.

Make be Thy mountaineer; I would not linger on the lower slope.
Fill me afresh with hope, O God of Hope.
That undefeated I may climb the hill
As seeing Him who is invisible.

Make be to be Thy happy mountaineer, O God most high;
My climbing soul would welcome the austere; Lord, crucify
On rock or scree, ice-cliff or field of snow,
The softness that would sink to things below.

Thou are my Guide;
where Thy sure feet have trod Shall mine be set;
Thy lightest word my law of life, O God; Lest I forget.
And slip and fall, teach me to do Thy will,
Thy mountaineer upon Thy holy hill.
~~Amy Wilson Carmichael, from Mountain Trailways

Lead me to higher ground . . .Today
With my prayers, desring yours, Leslie
