The Climb, Lyrics that Inspire Me!

The Climb lyrics
Songwriters: Alexander, J; Mabe, J;

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there’s a voice inside my head saying
“You’ll never reach it”

Every step I’m taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I’m not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

‘Cause there’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody’s gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It’s all about, it’s all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa

Life can be a challenge at times. You may feel like you can not get through one more obstacle. When you are in a hard situation you may feel overwhelmed and want to give up. I really appreciate the words to the song, The Climb, that is sung by Miley Cyrus.

I would like to challenge myself to remember it’s not always the speed or a race to reach the end result but it is the direction you are going on the path. I may think it is 2 steps backwards and only a half a step forward.

“Keep on moving, keep climbing
It’s all about, it’s all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith”

The last 3 months have been so difficult for our family. Nichelle is taking baby steps in her recovery. She has had 7 surgeries and about every set back and unfortunate turn of events that could possibly take place. She has had a very serious staph infection, a bacterial infection, high fevers, blood clots and more blood clots, too much thinning of her blood that has resulted in hematomas and nerve damage. She remains in intense pain that we know is because of the nerves that are swollen and the pressure that is on them. She still can not feel her left leg but she is now in the rehabilitation phase of her recovery. The doctors think it will be a very long process for her to be able to walk again. It could take one to two years to relearn how to walk. We all have to remember to keep the faith but more importantly to keep our individual faith and trust in the Lord. So, if you are facing a challenge in life try to remember, “It’s the climb!”
