Yesterday I had to drive to Storm Lake for training. It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive from where I live. I was totally un-excited about it. However, my mom went with me (thanks, mom:) and I found a really great Christian radio station to listen to. One of the songs they played on this station was an old country-ish Christian song called "God on the Mountain". I was immediately 'put-off' by the music of this song. I ADORE worship music, but I really gravitate towards more contemporary worship music. Although, I must say I do love old hymns.
Since I was in the car, in the middle of nowhere, I was pretty much stuck listening to this song and I am sooo grateful. What incredible lyrics. The song spoke of how things are pretty easy when we are on the mountain, but the valley is hard and we shouldn't lose faith because..... the God on the mountain is still God in the valley.
What a wonderful reminder. God is still God. He doesn't change. Circumstances will change, but He remains faithful, loving, merciful, and full of grace. He is there whether we are on the mountain or in the valley......and He is the same God.
I wrote a post titled 'Is He Good' earlier this month as I feel God has been speaking to me about this subject. This song was just His love song to me yesterday.
If you would like to hear it....hokey music and all.....click here.
