Today I’m sharing another of my favorite Third Day songs. It’s called Mountain of God from their 2005 Wherever You Are CD. There are actually a lot of great songs on this CD, but this one really speaks to me.
What I like about this song is that it reminds me that the dark valleys that I’ve gone through in my life weren’t a waste of time. They were just part of the journey that has brought me to the mountain of God. It is the struggles I’ve been through that have drawn me closer to Him and strengthened my faith.
Even now there are days when it seems like I’m traveling through a dark valley, but I know He is always with me and I know what is at the journey’s end. “Even though the journey’s long, And I know the road is hard, Well, the One who’s gone before me He will help me carry on.”
My favorite verse in this song is a short one; maybe it’s even the bridge:
‘Til You opened up my eyes
I never knew
That I couldn’t ever make it
This verse reminds me of the time when I didn’t know I needed God, though I did know I wasn’t doing very well on my own. It also reminds me that I needed Him even to reveal to me the depth of my own need for a Savior. It is the Lord who opens the eyes of the blind. It is our Father in heaven who draws the lost to His Son. It is the Son who seeks and finds the lost travelers in the dark valley. And He does it all so that we may be with Him for eternity in the glory of the mountain of God.
