maybe...

Maybe...
if God isn't moving the mountain we want Him to...
it's because He wants to take our hand and guide us to the summit.
 
Maybe...
He's saying "climb, My child."
And when we are tired, and our foot begins to slip...
He will not let us fall.
He will carry us.
{When I was a little girl most hikes ended with my earthly father carrying me.}
:)
 
Maybe...
there is something He want to show us from that great height...
that we could never see in the deep forest at the mountain's base.
 
Maybe...
our faces will shine with a reflection of His glory when He brings us back down...
so that we may be better able to tell others of His truth.
 
{"...when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the Rock that is higher than I." Psalm 61:2}
 
***
Maybe...
when God doesn't allow us to speak...
to tell someone all that we think needs said...
it's because He has things far better that He wants to tell them.
Things not so very full to the brim & overflowing with us.
 
Maybe...
when He closes our mouths...
it's because of unbelief...
like Zacharias when he failed to believe the word of the Lord through Gabriel.
 
But...
when our tongues are loosed...
may they be ever full of praises....
as his was.
 
***
Maybe...
when He lets us be hungry...
it's because He wants to fill us with something far greater that our necessary food...
He wants to make us understand that we do not live by mere bread...
but by every word from His beautiful mouth.
{Deuteronomy 8:3} {Job 23:12}
