When God Calls Us Back from the Mountaintop: Being Brave in Everyday Faithfulness

God's Brave Women - Wai Jia's Story
The problem with highs is that you eventually have to come down low.
After a race, after the celebrations die down, comes what people call a “post-race slump.” It’s the same after a big achievement – when the confetti lands, what comes next?
We go home... to a sink of dirty dishes and bills to pay.
In 2006, God used a broken, 18-year old new believer (myself) to paint a picture book that raised over $100,000 in order to purchase a permanent home for a group of Nepalese girls. I had stayed with these girls for 6 weeks until we got evicted together. Now, seeing what God had done, I was blown away.
Yet, after the extraordinary mountaintop experience, I eventually hit the ground, wondering why everyday Christianity didn’t have the same shine.
