This Cold Mountain

Psalm 48:1-2
Revelation 22:1-5

The seasons of nature that we go through every year are a lot like our lives. We experience the spring and summer, but we must also endure the fall and winter. During the winter periods of our lives it is easy to think that we will never feel the warmth of spring and summer again. We will, no matter how long and cold the winter is. Spring is coming, and everything will bud and blossom and be green and fresh again.
There will be no wintertime in heaven. Thinking about this truth gives me strength and hope while I am in the middle of a winter in my life. The mountain of the Lord is always fertile and green and His light drives away any chance for a cold wind to blow. One day, the cold mountains of our life will be far behind us, never to be thought of again.

My life has been blessed, I’ve enjoyed all my years
I’ve shared a lot of laughter, but I’ve shed many tears
Sometimes the cold winds blow and chill you to the bone
But there will be no winter in my heavenly home

I’m trading this cold mountain for one that’s always green
Where the snow never falls and the birds always sing
In the light of God’s presence, there’s no wintertime at all
I’m leaving this cold mountain when I hear my final call

This journey has been hard, this journey has been long
I’ve prayed a lot of prayers and I’ve sung a lot of songs
Sometimes it snows so deep, the sunshine is gone
But there will be no winter in my heavenly home

I’m trading this cold mountain for one that’s always green
Where the snow never falls and the birds always sing
In the light of God’s presence, there’s no wintertime at all
I’m leaving this cold mountain when I hear my final call
