Today's Tuesday ScripTune is "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus.
Now regardless of what you may think of Miley/Hannah Montana or her career choices, this is a beautiful song.
Everytime I hear it, I am reminded that our lives are not measured by our final accomplishments, they are measured by how we lived.
We don't have to be afraid of what we are facing. God has promised to go along. We shouldn't listen to the voices that tell us we are unable. God has promised that with Him we are capable. We won't always like what is before us, we will want God to take it away. I heard someone say recently, "We want deliverance, God wants development". That is absolutely true when it comes to our journey in life. It is full of mountains, and rocky roads. We will stumble, and more often than not, fall. We crawl over rough rocks and sometimes it hurts. We want to give up.
But if we stay on course, keep our faith where it belongs we will make it through and be ready for the nexttime.
It's the journey....... the path........ the road.......the climb......that is what really matters.
