Sony’s Thoughts: In the Valley He Restoreth My Soul
“He leads me beside still waters somewhere in the valley below. He draws me aside to be tested and tried but in the valley, He restoreth my soul.” ~ Dottie Rambo
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4)
Although not the most fun place to be, valleys serve a purpose. They can be lonely, dark places but God has promised that He will be with us even there. It’s going through the valley that makes us appreciate the mountaintops that much more. If life were all ease, we wouldn’t recognize our need for God but, as we feel Him take our hand and lead us through a valley once again, we better understand His love for us and His continual presence.
“But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in the time of trouble.” (Psalm 37:39)
We serve a great and mighty God. If you are down or having a hard time seeing light at the end of the tunnel, reach out to Jesus. Tell Him how much you love Him and proclaim your trust in Him to bring you through. It may not happen as quickly as you would like but you will be on the mountain again and you will be able to proclaim how He restored your soul. What a testimony that will be!
