As 2013 comes to a close I look back and think to myself, what a year it has been. As I sat in my room last night wondering, what I really wanted to do for New Years Eve, I slowly found myself drifting into another state of consciousness. You know that moment where your thinking about one thing but your mind begins to think about something completely different. I soon found myself in a totally different place then I expected. My mind took me to the mountaintop.
Granted I had a little help from Martin Luther King Jr as I sat there listening to his historical speech but none-the-less I was there and boy was it a joyous sight.
My mountaintop is vastly different than the one Martin Luther King had imagined. His sacrifice has already helped to pave the way for me to do half of the things I do today. What I saw over the mountaintop was a life worth living for. The vivid images, some which can’t be described in words helped to instill another level of drive to my psyche. Oh, I’m hungry!
“Chris, what in the world did you see?” I saw change. I saw hope. I saw a life not only for me but for others that is worth living for. I saw a life that doesn’t fit into anyones mold of what I’m supposed to be or what I can potentially become. All of these things reaffirmed my belief that I can and will help others from what I saw over the mountaintop and I’m going to continue to head there in “this world.”
As Martin Luther King Jr said in his speech,
Like anybody, I would like to live a long life–longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land.
What have you visualized for yourself in 2014? What does your mountaintop look like?
