Sept 24 – Helen Steiner Rice

If you have recently received bad news about your health, your finances or family and friends, I hope the following quote from Helen Steiner Rice will be an encouragement to you. She has written, “No matter how steep the mountain-the Lord is going to climb it with you.” Rice, an American writer of inspirational poetry was once acclaimed as "America’s beloved inspirational poet laureate". Her poems still hold timeless appeal, and in writing that the Lord climbs our steep mountains with us, she is in line with Bible truths, such as Nahum 1:7, where we read, “The Lord is good., a stronghold in the day of trouble, and He knows them who trust in Him,” and it is supported by Jesus’ promise “For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you,So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear…”
