Mountains are for Views, Valleys are for Learning – Poem

The mountain is for new heights

The valley, for new strength

The top for new sights

The valley for vision beyond length

Without the lows, there is nothing to learn

Without work, no money to earn

Without God, nothing for which the soul yearns

 

Sometimes you lead your church

Sometimes you lean on your church

Sometimes you build up others

Sometimes you need to be built, covered

Sometimes you reflect after you’ve ran the race

Sometimes you take refuge while running in place

 

How do you walk when you can’t even stand?

You have to learn, hand in hand

Step by step, day by day

The pain of growing fades away

Foundations deepen, new roots under

Glory to God with awe and wonder!!!
