This is Only a Mountain

"Only A Mountain"
Jason Castro

Another day, another fight
It always feels like an uphill climb
Another step, another mile
The story of your life

It’s harder than you ever thought
And it costs you everything you’ve got
When you’re back against the wall
And you feel like giving up

This is only a mountain
You don’t have to find your way around it
Tell it to move, it’ll move
Tell it to fall, it’ll fall
This is only a moment
You don’t have to let your fear control it
Tell it to move, it’ll move
Tell it to fall, it’ll fall

You’ve gotta find a second wind
It’s not as high as you think it is
Don’t give up and don’t you quit
You gotta climb if you wanna win

And I know it looks big
And I know you feel small
But just a little bit of faith can change it all
Change it all

This is only a mountain
You don’t have to find your way around it
Tell it to move, it’ll move
Tell it to fall, it’ll fall
This is only a moment
You don’t have to let your fear control it
Tell it to move, it’ll move
Tell it to fall, it’ll fall

Ask like you believe it
Trust like you can see it
Take your fear and say
There’s nothing in your way, no oh
Even when it looks big
Even when you feel small
Just a little bit of faith can change it all

This is only a mountain
You don’t have to find your way around it
Tell it to move, it’ll move
Tell it to fall, it’ll fall
This is only a moment
You don’t have to let your fear control it
Tell it to move, it’ll move
Tell it to fall, it’ll fall

It’s only a mountain
Just a little bit of faith can change it all


This song started playing in my head as I woke up this morning. The past few months it just seems like one thing after another. But I feel like the devil attacks the most when things aren't going his way.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9

Though the trials come, I will not be discouraged. I am reminded of this familiar, and so powerful verse:

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 

Emphasis on the word ALL. ALL things. I'm also reminded by my beautiful son Barrett that God can use anything to bring glory to Him. 


Last night was scary. I had a seizure--the worst one I've ever had. I only know what people told me. I remember nothing. That is what is scary--to have a space in time that you can't account for.

I have to be honest that when I woke up this morning, one of my first thoughts before thinking of the song above was Really? Right now?

I read these verses this morning.

or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 
2 Corinthians 12:7-10 

Once again, just what I needed to read. 

I'm asking for your prayers as I go through coming doctor appointments--my greatest prayer is that they can find the cause. I'm not going to lie--I'm terrified. But it's all in His hands. 

Let me pause a moment to say this: God is good--ALL the time. He is so, SO good.

On a completely different note, if you were friends with me on Facebook, I have deactivated my account. You will need to follow the blog or be a fan of the Barrett's Blankets Facebook page to keep up with everything as those will now be the two places I post. You can also contact via email to barrettsblankets@yahoo.com.

As Barrett's due date is approaching I am experiencing so many different emotions. Mostly I just feel like a huge piece of our family is missing this month. Audrey was born 2 weeks before her due date, so I always felt like at this point it would be any day now for Barrett. Thanks to my amazing heavenly Father for the peace I feel above all else--a peace that can only come from Him.

Most assuredly I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there, ’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
Matthew 17:20

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13
