Fresh Hope – 28th January 2017

We are all called to mountain living.
Why live in a valley, when there are mountain tops to experience ?

Here’s a few things you’ll need to know before and as you climb:

The closer you get to the top, the less people you’ll see. Not many people make the climb – be prepared for that.

When you meet people up there, they’ll be happy to see you. Because it’s a lonely place, when you do meet others who made the climb, you’ll immediately have a great connection.

It’s hard work to get there. Often you’ll feel like giving up and it will be very scary at times. Sometimes it will take all you have, all your stamina, all your persistence and energy and all your effort and will.

You’ll get close to the edge on many occasions. Yes, it can be a dangerous place, the path’s will get narrow and you’ll feel┬álike turning back. Be careful as you go, as the edge is a risky place to be. But remember nothing was ever accomplished without risk.

The view is spectacular. You’ll see things for yourself that you only ever heard about. You’ll experience some breathtaking moments…and you’ll feel amazing.

The next time will be easier. Do it once and you will be an experienced climber. You’ll know how to do it, you’ll be able to take others with you and you’ll wonder why you never did it sooner.
