FOCUSSING ON HILLS

Good Morning!

A Sunday Reflection – Lent 5 in Christian Calendar  33 Martello Tower, Saints Bay - Copy (2)

                      Martello Tower, Saints Bay, Island of Guernsey.      English Channel.

I have always loved pictures of hills, or looking across toward them.

Ordinary life is often like valleys and hills and I have found by focussing on the possibilities of climbing higher and looking beyond has  given me hope. It’s a reminder of  Psalm. 121 ...I will lift my eyes – unto the hills. From whence comes my help?…..My help comes from the Lord. who made heaven and earth. v1

As Christians, the remembrance of ‘a green hill, far, far way without a City Wall.’ A hill called Golgotha, should be coming to our minds more clearly  as we approach Easter. This remembrance should be deeper, profound, life changing and eternally  challenging.

Let the Easter Bunnies hop and a world with constant push for materialism and excitement continue to roll onwards,  BUT……….let us truly stop and think.

The Easter story is about suffering and dying. Sacrifice.    The Easter story is about a SAVIOUR.   The Easter story is about RESURRECTION...but the Easter story would not have by itself lived on ……Today millions are willing to die for its TRUTH.   If the story had ended there, as an event in the ancient past. .

We must also remember that the story did not end with RESURRECTION. Thank God!

The sinless Saviour’s SPIRIT……..Eternal Spirit..….even from the Beginning of life itself GOD ..(perhaps even before recorded creation history)………   was sent by the Saviour Himself to this Earth to live on  in all who will believe in Him and accept the Gift.    Now this is:

H O P E 

(At the highest hilltop level)

Thoughts, prayers and Love!

   

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
