DO YOU MISS MOUNTAIN-TOP MOMENTS?
Those sweet pockets-in-time where you had a great discovery or revelation...? ° In those moments: it's as if you could see the whole world from atop a mountain peak and everything was clear, rich and full. ° Gotta be honest, I miss them too. ° Life just felt so ALIVE! Colors were brighter, sounds were sweeter, I was more grateful and I'm sure I could hear God clearer. ° They're so enriching that I can find myself yearning for them and feeling flat in the in-between. ° But then I have to remind myself: God is in the ordinary moments too. ° Theologian, Oswald Chambers, writes, "We all have those times when there are no flashes of light and no apparent thrill to life, where we experience nothing but the daily routine with its common everyday tasks." ° Wait for it...here comes the hope; ° Oswald continues, "The routine of life is actually God's way of SAVING us between our times of great inspiration which come from Him. Don't always expect God to give you His thrilling moments, but learn to live in those common times of the drudgery of life by the power of God." ° Ah! Yes! Every moment, every task, He is with you: whispering and guiding. ° Come down from the mountain, rest in the shade and smell the flowers. He is in it all. ° Psalm 139:7-10 "Where can I go from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast." °
