Uplands of God

I saw this on my sisters site and couldn't help but feel like it belongs here ..may you always strive for the uplands my sweet friends ...

Not many of us are living at our best. We linger in the low lands, because we are afraid to climb the mountains. The steepness and the ruggedness dismay us and so we stay in the misty valleys, and do not learn the mystery of the hills.

We do not know what we lose in our self indulgence. What glory awaits us, if only we had the courage for the mountain climb, what blessing we should find if only we would move to the uplands of God. - J.R.M.



  1. I'm seriously going to use that quote in my book. That so sums up what I am finding in my own life, and what I am learning about the kingdom of God. I hate my own selfishness. And I find myself at the base of the mountain, just beginning to see mysteries that make life so much more beautiful and full.
    God is an awesome God.

  2. I thought you would like that ;)
