22 – Mountains

Michael and Sierra were at the airport, on their way to climb Mount Everest. The plane ride was long and stressful. When they got to their hotel, they settled down and relaxed for three days.

On the fourth day, they began their journey to the base of Mount Everest. They hiked for hours, slowly but surely making their way up the mountain. The scenery was breathtaking, and they were both excited to reach the summit.

After two weeks, they finally reached the highest camp. They spent the night there, resting and preparing for their final push to the top.

The next morning, they woke up early and began their climb to the summit. It was a long and difficult journey, but they persevered. Finally, after four days of climbing, they reached the top of Mount Everest. They stood on the highest peak in the world, and they felt a sense of accomplishment and awe.

As they stood there, Sierra turned to Michael and said, “You know that all this will vanish someday. But God’s unending love will never leave you.”

Michael was surprised to hear Sierra say this. He had never known her to be very religious. But he was touched by her words.

“I didn’t know you were religious,” he said.

“When you see the majesty of these mountains, how can you not believe?” she replied.

They spent the rest of the day on the summit, taking in the views and enjoying each other’s company. On the way back down, they talked about their faith and how it had helped them to get through difficult times. They also talked about their future plans. Michael told Sierra that he wanted to get baptized and join her church. Sierra was thrilled.

When they got back to the United States, Michael followed through on his promise and got baptized. He also joined Sierra’s church. Michael and Sierra continued to date, and eventually they got married. They now have two children and live a happy and fulfilling life.

They never forgot their journey to the top of Mount Everest. It was a life-changing experience that brought them closer together and strengthened their faith.

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Isaiah 54:10

It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.

2 Samuel 22:33-34
