“On the mountains, I will bow my life
to the one who set me there.
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
to the one who sees me there.
When I'm standing on the mountain I didn't get there on my own.
When I'm walking through the valley I know I am not alone.”
I received some tough news today that really shook me. I know you’ve had that moment too, where you’re moving and grooving through your day and then you get the phone call or the text message that stops your whole world. In that moment it is so normal to cling to despair, to get sucked into sadness, become overwhelmed with grief. I know that happened in my moment today.
But as I sit here and reflect and process, the lyrics to this song keep playing in my mind and I’m reminded that nothing happens in our life without God’s permission. And how many times do I have to go through a battle only to come out on the other side seeing the full picture, and realizing God was there the whole time, before I start to know there won’t be a time or situation when He’s not around?
I’m still waiting for more news but in the mean time I want to remind you what I’m remembering myself-
If you’re going through something today, big or small, God is going through it with you. You may be walking through the deepest valley of your life, and may not understand why it’s happening but God is there walking right beside you. Lean on him when you get weak, but be encouraged to keep pressing on...and be blessed when you see the sovereignty of His plan and work in your life. He loves you and knows you fully-Keep those words close to your heart 🖤
