Since I first started in church, I have heard a phrase that has perplexed me a lot. In scripture, and in several worship songs, I remember references to God being able to move mountains.
I always wondered, why would God want to move a mountain. I have no doubt He can, but why would He do it. Mountains are cool. Mountains are beautiful, why would he make them crumble?
This past week, I realized that mountains weren’t beautiful. I realize mountains were huge and impassable. I realized mountains are insurmountable climbs we cannot see over. I realized mountains are in-between me, and peace.
Some people have bigger mountains than others. That thing that some people have to get over takes a lot more moving.
I watched God move a mountain this week.
At West Ridge, we are doing a series called “Generosity Experiment.” The idea is that everyone brings $1 above their tithes to our service and we find someone who is hurting and could use help. We use the money to help them.
A woman in Cartersville didn’t have a home. Not only did she not have a home, but she also had 4 kids. So a woman, and her four kids didn’t have a home. Due to circumstances, she was living on the street, in her car, and in drug infested hotel rooms.
Due to the generosity of the people that make up West Ridge Church, she will now be living in a town home with all four of her kids and will have rent and utilities covered for the next 6 months.
God can move mountains, and God can move entire mountain ranges. I watched God move a mountain range this week. Check it out:
