Happy Blessed New Year Everyone. :grouphug2:

It's 2021 and Jesus is Lord. :rosebud:

For you... A message that I wrote and shared a while ago. It addresses all that you may be going through..."Speak to Your Mountain".


:rosebud: :rosebud: :rosebud:

"Who Art Thou 'O' Great Mountain?"

You don't have to be the 'strong' one in this situation anymore.
God has heard your cry and you can look up and stare this issue in the eye and say...

"Who art thou, O' great Mountain?" Who art thou?
My God has trampled you under His foot. He has made you, His footstool and mine.
You have been leveled to the ground. Leveled into 'fine dust'.
Dust to fill the voids and the cracks in the path upon which
I walk into the Plan, Purpose and Destiny that God has for me.

As I walk, I arise to new levels and new heights which God has placed me upon.
I endure no shame nor blame for God is the 'Lifter of My Head.'
He assures me that I have no fear, nothing to dread.

Who art thou, O' Great Mountain? Who art thou?
It's no longer you that I see, when I look up, for now I'm standing and walking upon you.
While looking up, all I can see is the Glory of God My Father completely around me, forever more.

Who art thou O' Great Mountain? No longer able to put fear in me.

Thank you Jesus, for when I have no strength of my own, you are always here,
on the inside of me, keeping me strong, all along.
Jesus Christ, My Lord.


Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

........Who art thou, O great mountain?


(Zachariah 4:6-7)

The Problem Within

"Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!" - Matthew 21:9

A few years ago, a woodpecker began tapping on the siding of our home. We thought the problem was only external. Then one day, my son and I climbed up a ladder into the attic only to have a bird fly past our startled faces. The problem was worse than we’d suspected: it was inside our house.

When Jesus arrived in Jerusalem, the crowd was hoping He would be the one to fix their external problem—their oppression by the Romans. They went wild, shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!” (Matthew 21:9). This was the moment they’d been waiting for; God’s appointed King had come. If God’s chosen Deliverer was going to begin reforming things, wouldn’t He start with all the wrong out there? But in most gospel accounts, the “triumphal entry” is followed by Jesus driving out exploitative moneychangers . . . from the temple (vv. 12–13). He was cleaning house, and from the inside out.

That’s what happens when we welcome Jesus as King; He comes to set things right—and He starts with us. He makes us confront the evil inside. Jesus on the donkey is like the warriors in the Trojan horse. The horse was welcomed as a symbol of peace, but its ultimate aim was unconditional surrender. Jesus our King requires the same from us.
