God, I wonder what You want from me as the mountain looms, its jagged edges flashing in the moonlight, its peak a fiery red.
I assume You want me to climb it?
I wonder what You want from me as I ascend and the ground beneath me starts to shake, and the stones begin to loosen, plummeting to the floor in a heap of dust.
I assume You want me to reach the top?
God, I wonder what You want from me as the mountain lets out an almighty roar and submits to the howling winds and comes crumbling down on top of me.
I assume You want me to fall...
I wonder what You want from me as I stand bewildered in the same spot I stood before, surveying the destruction in front of me, never to be rebuilt.
I assume You do not want me to ascend...
I look up and see the stars, winking and dancing in their canvas of black.
I don’t know what You want.
But I know what I want.
I want You.
I will find another mountain to climb.
And if it shatters beneath me and sends me falling once again, I’ll get back up and try another.
I will fight for what I want.
No matter what.
And even the fires, winds, and dust of this world can not stop me.
Ever.

That is beautiful! Such a wonderful outlook. There are people who think that when they fall, Hashem has failed them, but you realize that sometimes Hashem plans for us to fall. Everything is part of His plan, and He will pick us all up from the dust and bring us to where we need to be. But the challenges in our lives are there to shape us into better people.
