“Where did all of these dips and crevices come from?” I kind of mumbled as I walked through the field yesterday morning. They appear to have popped up over night. In truth, they had always been there. Perhaps the brown grass made it all blend in and now the green grass gave way to its appearance. Whatever the reason, the field was certainly full of dips. I had walked that field so many times, not really paying attention. This time I was watching not to fall or twist my ankle in a dip. The Lord spoke to my heart and said life is full of peaks and valleys.
There was an awesome glow from the sun, so awesome that when I came in I could it’s rays shining though the window right into my living room. This had never happen before, I was mesmerized by it. I heard God say, MY light guides the way. I started reflecting on my own life, so many twist and turns followed by ups and downs. The one constant was God seeking me. It didn’t matter how far I strayed, He was always pulling me back. I learned a lot in those valleys, but He always cleared my path to the peak. He continues to do just that.
God teaches me in the valley how to soar when I reach the top of the mountain. All the dips and crevices along the way help to shape who I am and equip me for the journey ahead. Regardless of where I’m positioned, God’s light still shines down on me. It guides me every step of the way and draws me back when I get lost. It’s a beacon of hope when I feel helplessness overcoming me. Are you in a valley? Look to the light, He’ll draw out and help you on the climb back to the top. He will never leave you in the valley alone. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
