highway to holiness
We each are on a journey in this life as though traveling on a highway. Each one of our decisions direct us on this highway that ultimately leads us to our final destination, eternity. We need to choose wisely as each decision really does matter. Our most important decision is, what will we do with Jesus. Eternity, Eternity.....where will you spend eternity and what will you do with Jesus! Travel Wisely!

To dwell on the Mountain top with the wind at our back and the sun on our face, would be our choice for living.
But if we stay on the mountain long enough, we will find self, taking credit for these high places in life and possibly develop a taste for man made plans. Suddenly we have lost sight of "it's all about Him" because we've polluted this beautiful place with living life "our way" and only adding "The Author of Everything" to our plans.
There are detours in life that lead us to the Valley road. And it's on these roughed pathways where our true journey of character and strength begins. Our roots go down a little deeper with each detour, growing our inner man, as we learn to lean heavy in our Heavenly Father. In the Valley, it's here, where we gain more knowledge of His character. And with each passing day, we have a better understanding that this is the same Loving Father that was with us on the Mountain Top, He hasn't changed toward us, only our circumstances have changed. We gain a deeper trust in Him, that can only be revealed by passing through the Valley. It's at this place, that we develop a deep love for our Father in a new and life changing way.
Our Gracious Father will choose to lead us back up the mountain. But this time, our mountain top experience is even more beautiful. We've gained a deeper knowledge of who our Father is, causing us to have a Holy Reverence for this Majestic, Almighty One, who is more than worthy of All our praise.
