"Following God is like climbing a mountain. If God showed us how high the mountain really is that He wants us to climb, we might be afraid to take the first step. We might argue that we're not ready, that we're not at all prepared to go all the way to the top. So he covers the top of the summit with a cloud, and all we can see is the step before us. That first step looks manageable, so we take it. And then we take another step and another, and another, until one day we find ourselves at the top of the mountain without even realising where we were headed when we began. Then we are very glad we took the journey. "
- Joyce Meyer
'I press on to, lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me his own.'
