No Peaking

I apologize, because this is another crosspost from Beware of Artists, though I am going to expand the thought a little more.

Okay first of all, in case you were wondering, I didn’t misspell it. This is a play on words that occurred to me one day. We’ve all heard the story of that person who seemed to have the world by the tail in high school. They ruled the school and were likely a domineering bully. A big fish in a little pond, but when those four years passed, that was it, they peaked in High School. For the record, I can’t say I knew anyone like that personally, but I’m sure there were a few. The thing is, if we live this life properly, we don’t have to peak at all. We can keep growing, learning and expanding our horizons. Basically it involves giving each opportunity our best and to keep reaching for new heights. No I don’t mean some rat race/hamster wheel existence of chasing our tails and never being satisfied. Rather I mean one of limitless possibilities, where we continually ask “what if?” and like the results.

Consider our calling to expand the Kingdom and move the Gospel forward, as we prepare the way of our King. That job will never be done until He returns in His glory. Our call then is to keep moving forward. Consider the words of the Apostle Paul. Nearing the end of an amazing journey and a world changing life, do you remember what he said. 2 Timothy 4: 7-8. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”

Keep moving forward, running your race, fighting your fight. There is a crown in store.

No Peaking!
