I keep trying to reach the goal and get the prize for which God called me through Christ to the life above. —Apostle Paul (Philippians 3:14)
There’s a life above—a higher experience of living.
“Life above” does not mean living on a heavenly cloud somewhere. Nor does it mean you’re above someone and they are below you.
Life above—the “goal” and “prize”—is an experience of life that transcends the physical world and the shifting circumstances. It’s an experience of life that taps into the deeper, inner, spiritual life with God where there is peace that passes understanding. Where there is purpose in pain. Where there is trust when it doesn’t make sense. Where there is joy despite the troubles.
“Life above” is right here and right now. It’s a breathe away… when you realize that this is the moment, God is with you, and everything is still “good”.
