It is easy to find joy and God’s breath of life in the mountains. However, when I return to the heat of the valley, I must remind myself that nothing is ordinary in God’s sight. All ground is holy. I need to walk upon it “with gentleness and mindfulness. God is in every particle.”
“The meaning of life. The wasted years of life. The poor choices of life.
God answers the mess of life with one word: Grace. “ Max Lucado
Look up, you whose eyes are fixed on this earth, you who are captivated by the events and changes on the surface of this earth. Look up, you who have turned away from heaven to this ground because you had become disillusioned. Look up, you whose eyes are laden with tears, you who mourn the loss of all the earth has snatched away.
The battle is not lost, the victory is yours—take courage, be strong. There is no room here for shaking your heads and doubting, because Christ is coming.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
