” Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction”.
-2 Cor 1:3-4b, ESV
” May we always remember in our Prayers, all those affected by any tragedy throughout the World and may we all feel the comfort of Jesus from all these afflictions that comes across our paths”.
The Journey through life is like the Journey to the summit of any Mountain for which we attempt, it comes with many trials and tribulation, there are many obstacles we learn to over come, many bumps that will bruise you on the outside as well as the inside, sometimes these bumps will knock you down, but it is never on how you fall, it is always on how you pick yourself up from the fall and move forward with strength to be better. On the journey up the mountain we will see many things, only if we look deeply into what we see, it is when we just scratch the surface of this journey, that we then don’t see all the true beauty that is around us, instead we only see what we want to see and we then open ourselves up to the afflictions and tragedies, that may come to us along our path.
The Journey up the Mountain to some may seem like to hard of work, so they never venture up any mountain to experience the true beauty that is around them. As you walk the path of the mountain, is like walking the path of this journey through life, you see the light at the end of the path, which is the summit at the top of the mountain and when we reach this summit, we then get a strong feeling within us and this feeling is of the accomplishment that we just climbed, that feeling of Awe!!! We get as we reach the summit, is the same feeling that we get, as we accomplish anything that comes before us along our journey through life. This is our outer body experience, that when things become so overwhelming to us and we then become clouded within our judgments, we then lose this feeling and lose our vision along our path, we then move forward without seeing all the true beauty that is around us.
As Jesus comforts us from all the afflictions throughout this journey, we then comfort ourselves and each other, so we all can live in peace along our paths of this journey, Jesus showed us the way when he came to us and walked his journey, he also died for us to further his teachings to us, but we are so far removed from the days of Jesus coming to us, that we are now letting the clouds of our judgments get in the way, of us truly looking deeply at what we see. We forget just how beautiful everything around us is and are now consumed with all the ugliness that surrounds us, there is a light at the end of all our paths, it is just that we are not letting ourselves see the light, this light is not the light of day, it is a beacon within each of us, that Jesus lights up our paths as we strive toward the path of righteousness, we don’t see this light, we only feel this light, when we truly look deeply at all we see.
When we truly feel this light, only then will the shadow of doubt leave us, only then will we clearly feel the light within us and look deeply at what we are seeing. A big part of all these Afflictions and tragedies around us, is simply because not only do we doubt ourselves, but we also have forgotten how to forgive ourselves as well, when we Pray for Jesus to forgive us, we first have to forgive ourselves to truly be forgiven at all. The power of forgiveness, will always help us feel the light within us and will always help us look deeply into what we see. This journey through life is the same as the journey to the summit of the mountain, it will reward us with the feelings of accomplishments, when we truly look deeply at what we see along our path.
” The Mountains we see around us from the Valley’s, are not just there for us to see, they are there for us to feel accomplishment as we journey to the summit of each one”
” The trials and tribulations along our journey here on Earth, are the same as the ones we face on the journey up the mountain and help us look deeply into what we see”
” to truly feel the power of the mountain experience and feel Jesus within us, we first have to venture up the mountain and let ourselves look deeply into what we see that is all around us”
