I went climbing over at Sportrock with Dan and Ryan today. We had a great time and I am really sore. When I got home, I was reminded of the climbing stuff that I did one day this past summer. We took Lauren to Old Rag Mountain, where we had our last hang out time before she left for school. It was awesome! There had been a long climb, we were all sweaty and hot and had run out of water already. But once we got to the top it was so worth it! Just remembering when we first crested the hill to where we could actually see stuff was awesome!

I think that's how I look at challenges in my life. I have this huge looming problem in front of me, I have used up all my strength. "For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD. 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you". I just can't forget to remember the end justifies HIS means.

Just a thought.
