So Small

My prayer for today ~ Lord, please turn this mountain that I have been climbing into a grain of sand ~

So Small ~ Carrie Underwood

Yeah, Yeah

What you got if you ain't got love
The kind that you just want to give away
It's ok to open up
Go ahead and let the light shine through
I know it's hard on a rainy day
You wanna shut the world out and just be left alone
But don't run out on your faith

Cause sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
Is just a grain of sand
And what you've been out there searching for forever
Is in your hands
And when you figure out love is all that matters after all
It sure makes everything else seem
So small

It's so easy to get lost inside
A problem that seems so big at the time
It's like a river that's so wide it swallows you whole
While you're sitting around thinking about what you can't change

And worrying about all the wrong things
Time's flying by, moving so fast
You better make it count cause you can't get it back
Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
Is just a grain of sand
And what you've been out there searching for forever
Is in your hands
Oh, and when you figure out love is all that matters after all
It sure makes everything else seem
So small, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
Is just a grain of sand
And what you've out there searching for forever
Is in your hands
And then you figure out love is all that matters after all
It sure makes everything else
Oh, it sure makes everything else seem
So small

Yeah, yeah

I'm reading a great book by Beth Moore right now called Believing God - here is some of her wisdom:
"We will never be victors without an opponenet. As we will continue to see in our jouney, God gave the Irealites the Promised Land but told them they'd have to take what was theirs in fierce battle. Why? Probably one reason was so they'd develop the strength to keep it once they conquered it. Surely another was to let them experience the thrill of victory that only a battle hard fought can bring. In God's economy, much of what is worth having is proved worth fighting for." Later she writes, "...Christ told His disciples that if they had faith as small as a mustard seed, they could say to a mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it would move! The next words out of Christ's mouth were 'Nothing will be impossible for you' (Matt. 17:20).....I think we, too, could speak to some mountains at appropriate times and they just might move....If we truely believe according to the sound application of scripture that God is extending authority to us as His children over a certain matter, we might be shocked what we could tell to 'Move!' and it would. I've tried telling a few mountains to move at times..and, low and behold, to this Baptist girl's surprise, some have!"
Know that God can do what He says He can! And, know I love you and am praying for you!
