Mount Everest is literally located at the top of the world, rising 29,035 feet above sea level. While more than 2,200 people have succeeded, nearly 200 have lost their lives attempting the climb.
Because of weather and altitude very few people have ever made it to the summit on one attempt.
I think we all have a personal Mount Everest that we must climb. I don't know what your mountain is but it could be almost anything.
- weight loss
- starting a business
- writing a book
- restoring a relationship
- getting out of debt
- getting into shape
- creating a beautiful piece of art
Here's the thing about your mountain - if you don't try to climb it you will never reach the top. The problem is that most of us would prefer to have a helicopter drop us at the top. Even if that was possible you would miss the whole journey and it's not just the top of the mountain that changes us it's the journey.
'Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.' Isaiah 40:28-29
It is NOT okay for you to never try and climb.
No matter how many attempts it takes you need to be climbing.
What are you waiting for?
