Old Meets New 6 – Valley of Life

In this life you will often face road blocks or brick walls that keep you from achieving your own personal goals, and hinder you from moving forward in God’s glory. There comes a point in your life when you know what your gifts and talents are, when you know the direction you want to go, and when you feel God pulling at your heart-strings, bringing His desires into fruition. However, God never promised the Journey to carry out His will and plan for your life would be easy. In fact He reminds you that the road will be difficult, and that there will be pressure, persecution, and enemies will strike you, seeking to keep you from achieving all God has planned for you (2 Corinthians 4:8-9). The wonderful thing is that God also promises that He will be with you, that He will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:8 ). He assures you that you will not be crushed, nor destroyed, but that you will triumph and find victory when you trust in Him and let Him lead you (2 Corinthians 4:8-9, Isaiah 43:2, Isaiah 40:31, Micah 7:8).

Remember the next time you face an obstacle that is deterring you from the will of God, all you need do is reach up and pray that God will give you the strength to endure the trial, power to overcome it, and wisdom to know the direction to go. Stay connected and don’t lose hope, for with God you will overcome!! Blessings.

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed, perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not abandoned, struck down, but not destroyed. –2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Valley of Life

Trying hard to do what’s right
Struggling to get out of the valley
Praying for the end to be in sight
Wishing for an alternate reality

Wanting to rise above the trials
Getting hit from every side
Tribulations dragging on for miles
Crying out, wishing I could hide

I want to hide away from the world
Its arrows and slings slicing heart and mind
Watching the future aimlessly unfold
Winds blowing leaving chaos behind

Reaching up instead of out
Seeking strength only God can provide
Trusting He will carry me through this drought
Desiring Him to be my ultimate guide

Lead me O Lord through this life
I fall to my knees in full humility
I trust that you will end this strife
Knowing you my God will forever keep me
