May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. - Romans 15:5-6

Dear Lord, sometimes I am frightened by the challenges I face.  I think there is no way I will endure through it all. It seems too big for me.  I forget that you are the God who gives endurance and that you never intended for me to carry my burden alone.  You have always wanted to be the God to whom I look for help.  So, Lord, I know you see the mountain that I see in front of me.  From your heavenly perspective, it looks like a foothill.  Reach down today and make me a strong enduring person of God who steps bravely onto the side of the mountain to traverse its heights.  Now, my fear is giving way to hope as I remember that you are right here with me. AMEN

When you walk with God you get to ride on his shoulders whenever you need a little break.
