Amen! My first memory of your closing line came from Mel, the cook on the 70's sitcom "Alice". Nice work on an encouraging piece!
Good closing thought to support an expectant faith: "When we carry His banner into the fray, we are strengthened by His mighty hand and our faith is renewed by the visible signs of His intercession."
Loved the last line with the spiritual twist to it!

I wish there were answers to the mountain top experience being swallowed by the status quo. Carrying God's banner is the right choice! Thanks for submitting

So true with any 'retreat' - and the concept of advancing - well done!

I've experienced the same thing: just when you've got alone with God and ascended the mountaintop, you are called to get back to the humdrum of the real world. Good points made!!
Some interesting imagery: "How to smuggle a mountaintop experience back into our humdrum lives" and "Our engines of faith sputtered at first". A much needed spiritual lesson presented in an enjoyable - yet challenging - way. Thanks for sharing.
