Remember the Mountain

First off, I'd like to thank all of you for your prayers and well wishes about the loss of my aunt. It's nice to know that I have people out there praying for me and my family.
The funeral went well, and I think it made several people think. Which is exactly what my aunt wanted. I heard several mention their need to get into church and get their lives right. Pray that God continues to work in these hearts.
Now for today's devotional thought. I heard a song this weekend that was exactly what I needed. The Galloways came to sing at our church Saturday night, and they sang a song called, "Remember the Mountain."
It talks about Jesus' disciple John and how Jesus allowed John to be there on the mount of transfiguration. Can you imagine what an awesome experience that was for John? Later in John's life, he was exiled to Patmos. He was in shackles, and I'm sure it would have been very easy for him to get discouraged. I'm sure that he had to think back many times about that mountain-top experience to keep focused. He had to remember that Jesus was God, and that the same Jesus that had been there on the mountain was there with him in this hard time.
We need to do the same thing. During sad times like my family is facing now, it's easy to get discouraged, but we need to remember that Jesus is with us, and He is the same God yesterday, today and forever. He can calm the storms of our lives, or He will give us the grace to see the storms through.
So if you are facing a trial today, remember the mountain, and remember that the God of the mountain is still God in the valley!

Wonderful thoughts, Heather. I wonder that our valleys are directly porportionate to our mountaintops. In other words, there's a God-given balance between our glimpses of glory and our exile. In some ways, the valleys make the mountaintop, for w/out both, life is a salt plain.
