Mountain Meditations : A Daily Spiritual Journey for Hikers
This particular book was designed especially for all hikers who have a love of the high country. The volume contains daily meditations, quite carefully selected from the Bible, and arranged in a manner so as to teach, enlighten, and bring inspiration along the high trails. This is indeed a perpetual volume, in that it never ceases to encourage. The words of God endure forever, and so new insights are gleaned each time that we read through them, time after time. My personal wanderings into the high country were and continue to be my best times with God-alone or with others. It is there where I can so vividly encounter the wonders of His creation. My varied experiences and the grace of God have allowed me to indeed behold the supernatural through the natural amidst the high rocks, and among the vast, captivating desert landscapes as well. The Scriptures that I have selected for this devotional are like a mere drop of water in a heavy downpour of rain. Yet, a single drop of water in a barren wasteland would be a find of great significance to one who is truly thirsty-one who yearns for meaningful and satisfying enlightenment. I hope that you will choose to carry this edition of 'Mountain Meditations' along with you in your day-pouch or backpack the very next time you hike the high trails-or any trails for that matter. It can open your eyes to many things, as you associate the wonders around you with the entirely spiritual, Biblical precepts that you are about to read, meditate upon, and gain insight from each day. There is no human philosophy nor Biblical commentary associated with this volume. The Scriptures are the greatest treasure on earth, and in and of themselves serve to arouse the heart and stimulate ones thinking along the trail to maturity-nothing else is needed. They are the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Have a great journey!
