When tragedy strikes we seek GOD, ALL MERCIFUL and ALL LOVING GOD. But when things are going along "pretty good", a time when we begin to reflect upon what "we have done"; pride creeps in and there is not as much room for GOD. When JESUS died for our sins, HE died for ALL the sins of the world, including our REJECTION OF HIM. 1 John 4:8, "...GOD IS LOVE." When we ascend a "small hill" (or are carried through a difficult time) we give ourselves credit for our accomplishments. When GOD says, "I am with you always" that includes when we REJECT HIM. Sitting atop of our "small hill" of temporary accomplishment keeps us from ever experiencing THE MOUNTAIN TOP. Once you are taken to the top of the Mountain, you realize how small the Hill was. You see, GOD of the VALLEYS, is GOD OF THE MOUNTAIN.
