GOD CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE UNKNOWN...
WE KNOW BECAUSE HE TOLD US SO!
I know I don't know all or even most of the answers BUT I know the ONE who IS the Answer.
I know that all He does is good and loving no matter what.
I know that He is always with me through the fellowship of His Holy Spirit
I know that He acts on behalf of those who wait on Him.
I know that He longs to be gracious to me.
I know that I am engraved on the palm of His hand and He will not forget me. (Isaiah 49:16)
I know that His grace is sufficient for me.
(2 Corinthians 12:9)
I know that His Word is a light for my path when it seems so dark.
I know He can be trusted and that nothing is too big or difficult for Him.
I know of His peace that surpasses all understanding.
I know that He who began a good work in me will complete it.
I know that He is the Rock, the One who never changes, and that He is a sure foundation.
(Psalm 18:2, Malachi 3:6, Isaiah 28:16)
I know that He will not abandon the work of His hands BUT that He will fulfill His purpose.
I know that as a loving Father, He has compassion on His children and knows how we are formed and remembers that we are dust.
I know that I have been bought with a great price and my life is not my own.
(1 Corinthians 6:20)
I know that by giving my life away, I find my life.
I know that He has given me everything I need to live this life of Faith and Godliness.
(2 Peter 1:3)
I know that only He can satisfy me.
IN THE VALLEYS I GROW…
Sometimes life seems hard to bear,
Full of sorrow, trouble and woe
It's then I have to remember
That it's in the valleys I grow
If I always stayed on the mountain top
And never experienced pain,
I would never appreciate God's love
And would be living in vain.
I have so much to learn
And my growth is very slow,
Sometimes I need the mountain tops,
But it's in the valleys I grow.
I do not always understand
Why things happen as they do,
But I am very sure of one thing.
My Lord will see me through.
My little valleys are nothing
When I picture Christ on the cross
He went through the valley of death;
His victory was Satan's loss.
Forgive me Lord, for complaining
When I'm feeling so very low.
Just give me a gentle reminder
That it's in the valleys I grow.
Continue to strengthen me, Lord
And use my life each day
To share your love with others
And help them find their way.
Thank you for valleys, Lord
For this one thing I know
The mountain tops are glorious
But it's in the valleys I grow!
