Having goals in life allows us to measure our chosen activities against the sought after destination. When we begin a journey with the end or goal in mind, we are able to move with joy, with endurance and with perspective.

However, from time to time, on this quest for the summit, we hit a flat area, a plateau. Instead of making progress upward, we flatten out. Pyramid Mountain on Kodiak Island in Alaska has such an area.

As you continue your journey toward the goals which the good Lord has laid upon your heart to seek after, know that there will be times when we step onto a plateau as well.

During that time, may we all take the needed rest, gather our thoughts and then continue our trek upward. As the good book says, "Every good and perfect gift is from above." and "If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God."

If you have hit a plateau you are not alone. We are all there at times. May you move your gaze upward soon. May you turn your eyes back onto the goal set before you. There is help along the way. As a line in a beautiful song says, "I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord."

Have a great day and week my friends.
