My prayer is to never lose the breathlessness at our ABBA's beauty when we entered into Zion National Park in Utah this past February. I pray I never take for granted His Awesomeness. How He created the all of nature for our enjoyment. I pray my eyes will always marvel at what a creation He has given us in nature and each other.
There are numerous accounts of how a person who walks in ABBA, versus a person who walks in the world, handles life. My mind is instantly filled with persons I know who have been granted with much and are a model of humbleness, versus those who are filled with pride. Those who have went through death, illness, sorrows, poverty and other horrors and allowed ABBA to shine through the darkness in their response. Mother Teresa. What an example of our Christ living in a dark world. Within the world of castoffs, she lived in her Zion mountain.
How blessed I too have been while living in my Zion mountain. How protected and cared for, even when having to deal with the harshness of the world and its people.
I so desire to lead others to live in the Zion mountain. The mountain of ABBA. For them to have an intimacy, which only can come from living with and within Him.
As I go.
While living on my Zion, am I using all the time, gifts, talents for Him or am I using them for me?
There are so many "in need and in trouble".
As His, are we helping the lost to find refuge in The Mountain of ABBA?
