Stepping Stones


The Lord came to me like a dream one day and asked, "Why do 
you sorrow?" 

I answered, "Lord my life is so full of pain, I can't face one 
more tomorrow." 

The Lord sat down beside me, and gently took my hand. He said, 
"Let Me explain to you, and then you'll understand. Each sorrow 
is a stepping stone you must surmount each day, And every stepping 
stone you climb is a sorrow that's passed away."

"The road of life is a mountainside, with crevices in which to be 
caught, But as you struggle on your way, I, the Rock, will lend 
support. Every stepping stone you climb, makes spirit and heart grow 
strong. Exercising character and faith, this road seems painful and long."

"The way is paved with stepping stones, to uplift your heart and soul, 
Though difficult, they aid your way, to a City paved with gold. I know 
that you are tired, for I, too, have walked this way, My sorrows did 
they multiply, but I cleared many stones away. I left My Rock to lift 
you up, I left behind My story, To give you strength to make your climb, 
to that special place in glory. And never fear, the Rock is here, you'll 
never climb this mountain alone. Surmount life's sorrows, continue on, 
for they are but stepping stones."
