Have you ever experienced a Hills and Valley moment? I have and it’s not very exciting. I mean the Hill part is, but the valley part isn’t because of the up and down vibe. One day, you can be up on the mountain top and the next day something unexpectedly happens in life that catches you off guard. Maybe the valley thing is hard to deal.
What do you do when your in the valley?
I often turn to GOD because He’s the GOD of hills and valleys! The month of April was a hill and valley month for me. As I tapped more into my inner God-given strength, I begin to grow more in my career and personal life. This reminded me of a season I was in when I was 24 years old and I wrote the following note to myself in the valley:
Dear 24 Year Old Clarissa,
Don’t be shy! Have confidence in yourself and stand up for yourself. Believe in yourself. Take chances. You got it. The future awaits. Walk into God’s plan for your life. Don’t be afraid. -Sincerely, your 30 year old self!
Hills and Valley Song
As I was writing this blog, the following song came to mind:
Hills and Valleys by Tauren Wells: On the mountains , I will bow my life. To the one who set me there. In the valley, I will lift my eyes to the one who sees me there. When I’m standing on the mountain aft, didn’t get there on my own. When I’m walking through the valley end, no I am not alone! You’re God of hills and valleys!
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,[a] I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. -Psalm 23:4
