Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me (Psalm 23:4).
God doesn’t just take us to the valley.
He takes us through.
And on the other side of the valley we will find the sun bright, and the tears gone, and the pain banished, and our souls breathing easily. And we will look to the One who loves us and rejoice in knowing that never once in all the darkness were we ever, even for a breath, alone.
The valley is deep, Beloved, and the shadows are dark, but he is with you.
And he will bring you through.
It’s Monday, Beloved.
