On the other side of the mountain.

Someday I’m going to be with God in eternity.

Maybe then I’ll see what was happening on the other side of the mountain.

Now, I just have to trust that he is faithful.

He is at work.

I may ask Him for anything in Jesus name, and He will do it.

So, I pray for her Damascus road.


So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened (Luke 11:9-10).


The enemy longs to fill me with doubt.

He comes at me with accusations.

He says “face reality”, fool!

…and I pray for strength.

I say, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!

…and I set my face like a flint.


It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery (Galatians 5:1).


So I cast my burden…

I leave her at His feet again and again.

He will remove her heart of stone.

He will give her a heart of flesh.

He will bring Godly sorrow.

This battle is not mine.


I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me (Acts 26:17-18).


I cannot see the other side of this mountain.

I do not know whom He is sending.

Who will sit nearby on the plane to Florida?

Who shared the truth in Texas?

What billboards will she see?

What songs will she hear?


For God does speak—now one way, now another— though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds… (Job 33:14-30).


Her Damascus road is coming.

God is speaking.

He is faithful.

Jonah also had free will.

May I walk in faith and not fear.

Sure that that mountain will move…
