Life is a series of ups and downs. Its full of mountains that must be crossed. There are mountains of finance, mountains of strained and broken relationships, mountains of heartbreak and etc. All of these mountain experiences build upon the other. It may shape itself as something different but at the core it is the same and you can apply the same lessons and principles as before to cross them.
I have walked the same mountain twice in a certain situation. I did not realize the second time around as I was a mess trying to conquer it. But the third time I shortened the mountain trip by allowing Jesus to direct me and allow him to move the roadblocks. I can say now that I have matured and not fought the mountains by itself.
