Isaiah 54:10: Though the mountains leave their place and the hills be shaken, my love shall never leave you nor my covenant of peace be shaken, says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

It is difficult to imagine that the Alps or the Andes or the Himalayan Mountains might leave their place . . . and yet with God’s mercy they do.

When we place all hope in God, massive obstacles are overcome.

When we move through our days in Christ’s faith, immense disabilities are re-mediated.

When we act in the Spirit’s love, impossible circumstances melt away.

God’s overpowering love moves the mountains in our lives . . . when we act in God’s unlimited mercy.  God’s covenant with us is eternal.  Let us remain faithful to God and to the promises we make.
