Mountaintop or Valley?


This weekend some of our ladies will be in the NC Mountains for the Antioch Ministries Wellspring Conference, Loving God. Often Christians talk about having a “mountain top experience,” meaning a time of spiritual excitement from the sense of God being unusually near. Those experiences are always encouraging, but the truth is that we are never very far from God. He’s always there with us whether we are on the top of the mountain or in the bottom of the pit. Psalm 23 provides a good reminder.

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Please join us Sunday at either the 9:00 or 11:00 AM service. Our childrens’ ministry meets at 11:00. And remember, God is always with you.
