New Heights

My perspective can change

In a matter of seconds.

When thinking what to entitle

This post,

I found myself looking at

The mountain that looms ahead


The slalom course I must

Learn to navigate.

And then I realized something.

I am not where

I used to be.

If I’d faced these challenges

Not that long ago,

I would have handled them differently,

Poorly even.

I enjoy the exhileration

Of flying high

Because everything is great.


It really is even more exciting

To discover

I am being called to new heights

To gain a clearer perspective

On what seem like

Insurmountable obstacles.

I must say,

Even now,

The view is spectacular.

God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:4-6, ESV).
