I heard the words in the night. I did not even know what they meant.
My research today inspired me. It comes from a North American expression which means to take action in response to an opportunity or a ‘crisis’.
The first image that came up was of the sky.
Then I discovered it is often used for a whole lot of sporting, and ‘other’ goals and dreams.
God is calling us ALL TO GO HIGHER in Him, during this current crisis. It is our unique opportunity to really ‘CONNECT’
Beloved, Let us all cease our own goal seekings, and agendas, and truly seek the Christ who died for us in a deeper and more significant way.
HUNGER for HIM PERSONALLY.
Let’s STEP UP TO THE PLATE.
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.

Amen! Faye, I hope you and your family are staying safe and well during this challenging time? 🙏🏻
Interesting find of a very appropo quote. It is indeed a time for Christians everywhere to “step up to the plate.”
