THE MOUNTAIN TOP
I am sitting here this morning....contemplating, pondering, imagining. I have been on a little get-away with my husband for the last couple of days.
And while he has been attending meetings and discussing governmental policies,
I have been soaking in this beautiful place, resting, writing, and appreciating God’s awesome and beautiful handiwork. As I sit here this morning, a cool breeze blows through my hair, the sun shines over the rugged mountains, and white clouds billow amongst the tops of grand palm trees.
It is a serene setting, a setting created for the specific purpose of rest and relaxation. Our God of Wonders is so evident here in the beauty of this place. I look to my right and see the top of a mountain. I imagine standing on that mountaintop, just that much closer to the heavens, raising my hands, and shouting with joy!
I ponder what it would be like to stand atop that mountain and cry out to my God.
Would He hear my prayers just a little quicker from there, or would I hear His still, small voice answer me sooner?
My heart is thankful today. Thankful for this opportunity to be refreshed. Thankful for this
opportunity to spend quality time with the one whom my heart loves. Thankful to experience a new place and appreciate its beauty. Thankful that my Father in Heaven has used this time to speak to me.
He has called down to me from that mountaintop, reminding me that I can do all things through his strength, even on the days when I feel my weakest.
He has reminded me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made, even when I doubt myself and my abilities.
