Today’s thought – Press On

mom away day 2 046A pathway to the sea

Good Morning

Philippians 3:13-15
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

Not many of us are living are our best.
We linger in the lowlands
because we are afraid to climb the mountains.
The steepness and ruggedness dismay us,
and so we stay in the misty valleys
and do not learn the mystery of the hills.
We do not know what we lose in our self-indulgence,
what glory awaits us
if only we had courage for the mountain climb,
what blessings we should find
if only we would move to the uplands of God.

Oh, press on . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
