A Place Of Permanence

"They will fight against you, but they will not defeat you, because I am with you." Jeremiah 15:20.

You've been there. You've escaped the sandy foundations of the valley and ascended His grand outcropping of granite. You've turned your back on the noise and sought His voice. You've stepped away from the masses and followed the Master as He led you up the winding path to the summit...

Gently your Guide invited you to sit on the rock above the tree line and look out with Him at the ancient peaks that will never erode. "What is necessary is still what is sure," He confides. "Just remember:

"You'll go nowhere tomorrow that I haven't already been.

"Truth will still triumph...

"The victory is yours..."

The sacred summit. A place of permanence in a world of transition.
