Moving Mountains


There's an old Chinese proverb that says, "You can move a mountain one stone at a time." I came across a similar quote this morning, and it got me thinking. How many times do I turn my back on a situation because I feel I can't make a difference?

There are tasks set before each of us that seem overwhelming. The thought of moving the mountain is discouraging to say the least. But God doesn't intend for us to tackle the entire mountain. He urges us to take one step of faith at a time. Move one stone, and then another, and then another. Before we realize it, the mountain will be gone, and we will have made a difference.

Feeling worthless today? Battling feelings of insignificance? Doubting that anything you do in this life could make a difference? If so, this post is for you. Every helping hand makes a difference. . . even if you only move one stone.

What do you say? Let's start moving some mountains.
