Even Though I Walk Through The Darkest Valley

What do we do when the unthinkable happens? How would we react to a sudden loss of a relative or close friend?

It's nice to think that our faith would be strengthened. That we would be bold enough to endure. But we don't know that.

If there was a gun pointed at our face, would we be strong enough to keep from denying Christ? We don't have the answer to that.

The truth is we don't know what we would do if we were faced with terrible things. We don't know how we would react.

But one thing that we can know is that God will be with us always. No matter what kind of hurt or pain we face, he will be with us. He will love us. He will guide us.

When a dark time comes, we might be stronger than we think.

Or, we might go through a dark time and lose our way for a while. But when we come back, our faith will be sweeter than ever.

God provides strength for us. There is never going to be a time in our lives that is too hard.

With God, there are no limits.

He will not abandon us when things get hard. He will never leave our side. And that is what we need to remember.

Life isn't always easy. But God loves us.

Life can take some hard turns. Can point us in a direction we don't want to go. Maybe we won't see the end of a long, dark tunnel. But he does. And he is looking out for us.

I hope and pray that I will find strength in the dark times. That my faith will become stronger when I am challenged. And I hope you pray the same thing.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalm 23:4
