Today in my Sunday school class we were talking about things we can do to build ourselves up spiritually. One of my classmates brought up the idea of mountain-top moments...those spiritual high points. Over the past several years I have had mountain-top moments, times when I really feel the Holy Spirit. When I feel goose bumps and just surrender to God. Just last month I had 2! First, my family went with our church youth group to the Ichthus Music festival in Wilmore, KY. We spent 3 days listening to Christian music. Talk about a spiritual high! Imagine thousands of people rocking out to Skillet and the next evening celebrating the Lord's supper and worshipping with Chris Tomlin.
Then, several weeks ago, I was able to chaperone our youth group trip to MFuge in Charleston, SC. We spent a week in Bible study, serving the communities of North Charleston, and worshipping God!
Well, now I am back home, back to normal and I miss those mountain-top moments. I have been talking to God about this a lot. How can I bring these mountain-top moments back to my church? I fear that there are many people in my church that have never had a mountain-top moment and they don't know what they are missing. I want us to worship with enthusiasm, with joy! I want a mountain-top moment every Sunday...everyday!
Tomorrow, we are starting our vacation Bible school. I pray that we ignite a fire in our church! I pray that I make God my focus, that I work everyday to have a mountain-top moment.
