This text reminds me that even though this life’s journey is riddled with challenges, I can move forward with confidence in Christ. To dwell on yesterday’s failures is not part of God’s plan. Instead, I learn from the past and move forward toward the heavenly prize—home with the Lord. By pressing on, I thrive.

Did God really answer my prayer? I had never seen Him change a situation to fit my exact request, especially a seemingly insurmountable mountain.
These verses mean a lot to me because I know God is always with me and looking out for me.
