If you are in a valley of suffering right now, whether it be physical, spiritual, financial, emotional or any other struggle please know there is One who understands and desires to be with you.
I know of so many dear ones who are fighting for their lives from cancer and it would seem not a day goes by when you don't hear about someone losing their home or a loved one. My heart is burdened to pray for those in need. As I walked today, I listened to the following song and thought how relevant it is today although it was taken from a book of Puritan Prayers decades ago.
May it be a healing balm to your heart this day.
When You lead me to the valley of vision
I can see You in the heights
And though my humbling wouldn't be my decision
It's here Your glory shines so bright
So let me learn that the cross precedes the crown
To be low is to be high
That the valley's where You make me more like Christ.
Let me find Your grace in the valley
Let me find Your life in my death
Let me find Your joy in my sorrow
Your wealth in my need
That You're near with every breath
In the valley
In the daytime there are stars in the heavens
But they only shine at night
And the deeper that I go into darkness
The more I see their radiant light
So let me learn that my losses are my gain
To be broken is to heal
That the valley's where Your power is revealed.
Sovereign Grace Praise
For those without Hope, without any certainty, know that He is near to all who call upon Him.
He is Faithful and will not let you down.
Please let me know if you need prayer.
Because He first loved us, Noreen
