“I’ve walked among the shadows; You wiped my tears away; And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak; And I’ve seen the brighter days; And I’ve prayed prayers to heaven from my lowest place; And I have held the blessings;God, you give and take away.” (Hills and Valleys–Tauren Wells
This song has been one of those songs that has been playing in my heart and soul. Every time I hear it, I belt along with the words. And then the other day, I read this post by my blog friend Kaitlyn Bouchillon. It’s a post I can’t shake because her words speak to me so much. As she reminds us, God is greater than our highs and lows.
In the midst of Jagged Grace; in the midst of the lows, it can seem God isn’t there. But the truth is God is indeed there. And today, I find myself on the other side of the mountain; knowing that God is with me now and was with me in the midst of unexpected change. God is a God who promises to never leave us or forsake us.
Im so thankful for that promise…because God is greater than we could ever imagine. God is a God of “the hills and valleys” indeed. Thanks be to God!
Lots of truth here. I am struggling to remember — so thank you for the reminder.
You are welcome for the reminder.
God is a God of the hills and the valleys. Amen
So comforting that God is with us on the mountains and in the valleys!
Amen! I needed these words today!
I am glad they touched you!
Thank you for sharing and linking to the blog post. 🙂 I love the song lyrics too… so beautiful and full of truth.
Thank You! I am glad you enjoy it!
