Mountain Tops


I don’t want to be ordinary.  I want to live in the mountain tops.  You know, those experiences that are once or twice in a lifetime that make you feel alive in ways you usually don’t?  Ah, those moments are treasures!

But why can’t we have those experiences everyday?

I think we can.  Not everyday will be a Mt. Everest day, but they can be a Pike’s Peak day, or even a Sandia Peak day.  Go with me on this for a moment.

Crossing the finish line after a grueling 26.2 miles.  Mt. Everest.  Standing on a stage leading thousands of teens in worship and seeing them pour their hearts out to God with all they’ve got.  Mt. Everest.  Getting married.  Having children.  Building your dream home.  Mt. Everest.

Rushing to Walmart on Christmas Eve to buy presents for a family who will otherwise go without.  Pike’s Peak.  Feeding the homeless.  Pike’s Peak.  Seeing your favorite band in concert.  Pike’s Peak.  Vacation.  Reuniting with old friends.  Pike’s Peak.

Taking a meal to a friend.  Sandia Peak.  Laughing until your belly hurts.  Sandia Peak.  Enjoying your favorite dessert.  Sandia Peak.  Rescuing an animal.  Stocking someone’s pantry.  Surprising someone with flowers.  Receiving a compliment.  Sandia Peak.

Do you see?  Everyday can contain a mountain top moment.  We just have to be intentional about making it happen and acknowledging it when it does.  Without these special moments in our lives we are simply ordinary.  I’ll say it again – I don’t want to be ordinary.  I want excitement and joy and passion in my everyday.  I want to love and serve others everyday.  I want to make everyday a mountain top day.

What are your mountain top moments?  What can you do to make everyday a mountain top day?
