Morning Climb

BibleGateway.com is a site I use to look up my bible verses and to cross reference things.  I also subscribe to their daily thoughts but rarely have time to read them.  The one yesterday caught my eye because of all the things I have been writing this week.

I personally feel like the climb has begun physically (Challenge 47)  as I began my exercise program of a promise of at least 100 minutes a week.  I am up to 40 min in the two days so far... and should exceed this weekly, but I up till now since last fall, I have done ZERO per week. Last year at this time I worked out almost an hour every day.  I need to get back to that level.

When I wrote about the bridge yesterday and crossing the vast misty valley... it rang a bell in my head when I read about climbing the mountain in a swift glance to the morning mail out. They compared the getting to know Christ with the climbing of a mountain.  When you are at the foot of the mountain your eyes cannot see very much.  When you live in the valley of a mountain you are limited to what is there at ground level... you miss out on other things. 

As you climb the first knoll of the mountain you can see a bit further and experience a bit more as your mind expands with the new views and all you are taking in.  The higher you climb the more you see and your mind expands with thoughts.

The more you get to know Christ, the more you discover the beauty of His love. The heights and depths of His love are incomprehensible. (Yeah, remember that song, My love is deeper than the deepest ocean wider than a mile...etc).

"But who has ever gained the summit? Who has known all the heights and depths of the love of Christ which passes knowledge? Paul, when grown old, sitting grey-haired, shivering in a dungeon in Rome, could say with greater emphasis than we can, "I know whom I have believed" for each experience had been like the climbing of a hill, each trial had been like ascending another summit and his death seemed like gaining the top of the mountain, form which he could see the whole of the faithfulness and the love of him to whom he had committed his soul. Get thee up, dear friend, into the high mountain."  Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon.
