The Mountain

  1. 1. SlideShow by Vusa The Mountain
  2. 2. <ul><li>I looked and saw a mountain, Could not see the peak, I thought I'd try and climb it, For a way up I would seek. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>As I gazed upon this mountain, And planned my climb to go, My enthusiasm began to waver, Could I make it, yes or no? </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Sat there for a while longer, Afraid to start the climb, My body said to try it, But stay was in my mind. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>I now had such a conflict, One which I did not need, Which of my mind or body, Should I at that time heed? </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Should I listen to my body? Which said, I'm strong enough, Once we start the climbing, It will not be that tough. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Or should I stand and listen? To thoughts within my mind, What happens if you fail? And fall so far behind. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Just gazing at that mountain, I knew what I must do, Must get my mind and body, Thinking as one, not two. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>I decided at that moment, There was not time to waste, Had to make a great decision, And proceed with utmost haste. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Should I decide to climb that mountain, I surely then must chase, My way directly to the top, Beginning at the base. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Or should I instead take option? To stay on level ground, I still had to reach the other side, By simply going around. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>I could not stand just stagnant, Not knowing where to go, So I prayed for just a moment, For my Lord the way to show. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>I then made my decision, On which route I would tread, I used neither thoughts of body, Nor thoughts within my head. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Instead I simply chose, To do what seemed so right, And strode into the distance, Towards whatever was my plight. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Then as I took my first steps, It no longer seemed so clear, For that mountain I had been watching, Just seemed to disappear. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>I did not stop my striding, Although confusion was so rife, Then suddenly became so clear, That mountain was my life. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>I could stop still no longer, Simply wondering what to do, For longer that I waited, The more that mountain grew. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Yes, our lives are just like mountains, We can no longer hide, When the climbing gets a little tough, Just ask the Lord to guide. </li></ul>www.slideshare.net/vusa
