Pressing On

by Mark Weinrich

Pressing on is hard
when you’re blind to
what’s around the bend or
over the next false summit.
It’s easy to settle for just 
looking through the trees, 
knowing the trail
is dark and steep.

But what if someone 
is coming down, “You’re
not going to believe it,
you can’t stop now!”

Isn’t that why Christ
called us to take this trail?

There are overwhelming 
vistas to behold, stunning 
encounters filled with peace 
and joy. A worth beyond
all we’ve ever dreamed and
everything we’ve left behind. 

It’s around the bend or over
the next ridge. With faith 
as our sure and constant 
inner eye we know in Christ
we can, “Keep pressing on.”
