As I climbed the vertical cliff to reach this height, my heart felt so many things. It’s hard to describe. I broke out in tears, much to the immediate dismay of my husband, then I explained what was going on. I felt a great sense of gratitude looking out over the wonders that God had created. When we first arrived it was pouring yet the sun was shining brightly I ran down to the shore line and was greeted by a double rainbow hitting the water. it was an amazing sight. That should of been my first clue that God was working on my heart. Climbing the rocks to reach a peak is not something I do all the time, in fact rock climbing in not really my thing, I am not afraid of heights just of falling. I realized as I climbed that so many different emotions were running through my head, the tapes that say I can’t do it, I am too weak, and then the overwhelming “Yes you can you have been given a new confidence the I instilled in you”. I reached the top with a release of emotions pouring out, amazement, gratitude, happiness, JOY, and the sense of accomplishment. This was clearing out the negative emotions that were brewing and God was showing me through his eyes, that yes I was worthy, yes remember all the things that I have brought you through, but don’t live there. Look out, look above, choose the difficult path, you can certainly do it. You can rise above it all and be the child that I created you to be. This moment could of been any moment, God used this to show me, yes life can be hard sometimes, yes it seems lonely and you will feel afraid, yes I have put people in your path to support you, the ultimate support is your Faith, in yourself, in your skills, in who you were created to be and most of all in HIM. Be who I created you to be, not someone else, it was so clear, the tears that I felt were tears of JOY washing away the pain that I have had over the last many years, feeling the release and surrendering. God was showing me, “hey I created all this you see around you, I got you!” He has you as well; you have to surrender your heart to Him for it to all come together.
