I have had the song “Do It Again” by Elevation Worship on repeat. The lyrics in this song just speak right to my heart.

I’ve seen You move, come move the mountains
And I believe, I’ll see You do it again
You made a way, where there was no way
And I believe, I’ll see You do it again

I don’t know about you, but I have a terrible memory. It is hard for me to remember what day it is sometimes, let alone all the different ways that God has made a way when there wasn’t one. When I listen to this song, it reminds me to reflect on all the ways that God has moved mountains in my personal life, which fills me back up with hope for the future. Satan has a way of filling our heads with doubt and making us believe that there is no way God can change our situation, and that is not true.

If someone would have told me eight years ago that my future would include me teaching K-3rd graders about Jesus on Sunday mornings, teaching 4-6th graders about Jesus on Sunday nights, co-leading a connect group with my husband, and eventually ending up on staff at LCC, I would have thought they were crazy! But God pulled me out of my pit and continually pushed me out of my comfort zone. I am so thankful that God has never given up on me, and that He is constantly working on my character and has a perfect plan for my life. God has a perfect plan for your life as well.

Take some time this week to reflect on your past mountains, and write down all the ways that God has provided when you didn’t think it was possible. I feel that when we write something down, there is power there. I pray that this will give you hope for whatever mountain you are facing, and that you will be reminded that God is good.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you

and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11
