mountaintop. can you come down?

"While ye have light, believe in the light." 
John 12:36

"We all have moments, when we feel better than our best, and we say, 'I feel fit for anything; if only I could be like this always!'

We are not meant to be. 

Those moments are moments of insight which we have to live up to when we don't feel like it. Many of us are not good for this workday world when there is no high hour. We must bring our commonplace life up to the standard revealed in the high hour. 

Never allow a feeling which was stirred in you in the high hour to evaporate. Don't put your mental feet on the mantelpiece and say, 'What a marvelous state of mind to be in!' Act immediately, do something... if only because you would rather not do it. If in a prayer meeting God has shown you something to do, don't say, 'I'll do it"... Do it! Take yourself by the scruff of the neck and shake off your incarnate laziness. Laziness is always seen in cravings for the high hour; we talk about working up a time on the mount. We have to learn to live in the grey day accruing to what we saw on the mount. 

Don't cave in because you have been baffled once, get at it again. Burn your bridges behind you, and stand committed to God by your own act. Never revise your decisions, but see that you make your decisions in the Light of the high hour." 

Oswald Chambers
My Utmost for His Highest





The valley low that's where we'll make our homes
But this I know that's what He saved us from
Cause we've seen the glory of our King
On the mountaintop

We've been to the mountaintop
We've seen the glory of our God
He is here in the valley low
He's here I feel it in my bones
Our God here and now
We are the body of our God

Oh I've done bad, what happens to me now
I know for sure that we've been changed somehow
And we'll be the glory of our King
In His kingdom come

We've been to the mountaintop 
We've seen the glory of our God
He is here in the valley low 
He's here I feel it in my bones
Our God here and now
We are the body of our God

We build our temples
We build our walls
But they can't hold Him in
We are the temple of our God
But we can't hold Him in

We've been to the mountaintop
We've seen the glory of our God
He is here in the valley low
He is here I feel it in my bones
Our God here and now
We are the body of our God
