The Valley

My friend Tarren recently sent us an encouraging email. We are so thankful for her, and for all of you, who have been constantly praying for us and encouraging us in so many ways. Tarren reminded me of a song we used to sing back in the day, and after listening to it this morning, I thought I'd post the lyrics in the hope that it might encourage some of you as it has encouraged me. This is my prayer this morning...

The pathway is broken and the signs are unclear
And I don't know the reason why you brought me here
But just because you love me the way that you do
I'm gonna walk through the valley
If you want me to

Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise
You're not through with me yet
So if all of these trials
Bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire if you want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home
But you never said it would be easy
You only said I'd never go alone

So when the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear you answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering your love put you through
And I will go through the valley
If you want me to.
