How great it is to have a foundation
Of integrity to build upon
That through good choices and preparation
You stand spiritually strong

That upon this solid ground
An edifice of faith can be built
Based on what is surely sound
A love for Christ that does not wilt

I, having mountains to climb
Keep looking up
For God… all the time
For the way is tough

They are relative

Mountains and molehills
Are but trials to live
Purposes to fulfill

Through each trial, I have benefited
From blessings given with perfect love
For greater things I am being fitted
To eternal things above

You, too, are being fitted
For greater things above
Having benefited
From what strength’s made of

Through faith in Jesus Christ
All we face can be a blessing
Like unto peaks we climb
There are rules for stressing

Endure, well, the climb
With solid footing
Reaching, all the time
Always looking

Out of a desire
To know of strength
To prayer, I retired
And asked, at length…
Humbly, not to be blessed
But to feel the Lord’s hand
To be given a test
And become something grand
Why am I here?
What is my purpose?
The answers were near
I felt in me… promise
Then, within days
There was no denying
Of the Lord’s ways
….a moment, defining
My heart nearly burst
Tears swelled and I prayed
The challenge, the worst
On my knees, I stayed
So personal my need,
My trial, my tutor
It rooted faith’s seed
Deeply to my Savior
I sought for the balm
Found of Gilead
Peace came, I felt calm
I knew I’d been led
I resolved there to climb
Each mountain I’d face
Though lonely, at times
With pain to embrace
I wanted to endure
And become something great
Through faith I was sure
God’s love would compensate
I know bounds are set
To what can combine
I know too, to repent
To hold on, realign
The rod of His mouth
His wrath, and His anger
Have awoke me from doubt
To this, I am no stranger
Once suffering sore
To rise through and above
To come to the Lord
And witness His love
Where wisdom unfolds
From the choices then made
With a foundation of gold
Where, more can be laid
The refining process
Is painful, indeed
But this marks my progress
And grounds me in need
All that is in place, surely must cure
To be of service
To last and endure
For a higher purpose
Much is required
I must remain humble
For faith can expire
And belief can crumble
The heartache, pain, is as death
I feel polished for my role
Crying out, gasping for breath
I find the Lord, speaks to my soul
Yes, I know that my strength
Is not of my own
For without Him, I would stray
And fall, all alone
Who can I forgive?
And share of His light?
My best, His to give
Wholesome and bright

Pondering at 3:00 am (grieving- to be honest) what I had written on the Ensign I lost at the airport.  Rushing left me unaware, I have lost what I had hoped to share. Maybe it was found and not thrown away.  In Las Vegas, to travel or to stay.
