I’ve always been fascinated by the majesty of mountains. The Swiss Alps are magnificent and in California the mountains in Northern California are almost temple like.

When it comes to climbing one of them, this is where I hesitate because while I am amazed by their presence - - I am awed and fearful of them.

The scripture poses a question; Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place? He that has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully Psalms 24:3-4

To draw near to the presence of the LORD requires one to have among other things a pure heart. It is possible to be saved, forgiven and still have unresolved issues within that hinder our ability to go to the place of holiness.

When in this condition some count the cost too great before preparing themselves for the climb. Some hesitate and do not ever realize such an experience.

Others deal with all the issues that impede their progress in GOD and press ahead to begin the climb.

Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt fill me with joy with thy countenance: at thy right hand are delights even to the end Psalms 16:11

This is the mountain top experience in a word.

You never know what you may meet on your journey, perhaps something or someone who will comfort you.

Once you arrive at the top it is important to spend some time there. You will have to return soon enough to earth below where there is turmoil and struggles but linger in HIS presence until your refreshing is complete.

Don’t just make this trip once but again and again for therein is fullness of joy.
