“Lord, Give Me Mountains To Climb.”

President Eyring gave a talk a few years ago called, “Mountains to Climb.” It’s always been one of my favorite talks and it was one that I frequently shared on my mission (you can watch it at the bottom of this post!). Anyway, lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the trials that I’ve been given as of late.

As most of you know, I came home six months early from medical reasons. Unfortunately, those reasons have yet to be solved. I keep getting phenomena or bronchitis and for some reason, I can’t get over it. Many doctors have called me a “medical mystery” and have told me that there isn’t anything that they can do. But I’d beg to differ. There is always something that can be done.

I went to the doctor’s SEVEN times last year because I had bronchitis/pneumonia . This year, I’ve gone three. Three years ago, I went twice. Year before that three times. So on and so forth. You get the picture. It hasn’t been easy and believe me when I say that I’ve gone insane just sitting around watching Netflix. But the one thing that has been consistent is the Lord’s hand in this whole thing.

I’m glad that He gives me those mountains to climb so I can become more like Him. I’m grateful for the opportunities I have to learn and grow from the hard moments. But most of all, I’m grateful that I’m given so many chances to come closer to Him each day. That’s what makes climbing the mountain worth-while.

  1. “Give me mountains to climb” – I like that statement Sam. What you have said is so true. We have those mountains so we can press into Him, and trust Him.
    Like the woman who had an issue of blood who had gone to physicians but was worse off and then in desperation went and touched the hem of Jesus garment and was healed I encourage you to keep holding on and keep trusting. You have the right attitude already. He will heal you as you keep on trusting in Him.
    Great post Sam!

    1. Thanks so much Rolain! I agree with you! Thank you for reminding me about that story in the Bible. I hadn’t thought of that. The Lord most certainly does heal us in His time. It’s one of those witness after the trial of your faith things. Thanks for the comment as always, Rolain!
