Though I walk through…
Through the valley deep, through the valley dark, through the valley of the shadow of death.
I will fear no evil for I am not alone. God’s glory will be revealed in me and through me. I will stand upon the mountain.
Do you know the valley? Today, be still and makes the words of 1Peter 1:6-7 your prayer.
Lord, change my heart. Help me to see the joy that lies ahead on your mountaintop. Even today, though I may have to endure many trials, help my heart to grasp the knowledge that these trials will show that my faith is genuine. Your word says my faith is being tested and purified and strengthened, so that when it remains steadfast through these trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor. My head may know that Lord, but today, help me to be still so that my heart knows that as well. Help me to raise my eyes from the valley to mountaintop, to the place where you reign. Strengthen my resolve to put one foot in front of the other until I emerge from my valley.
