"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

IN THE VALLEY



I continue in the wilderness.

Being open to what the Lord is sharing with me. To strengthen. To trust. To love. To draw on. To believe. To heal. To comfort. To gain. To triumph. To defeat. To break. To mold. To humble. To surrender.

This posts' intention is not to feel sorry for me. No! It is a confession of the goodness of God and what He has to offer so freely despite the pain.

May this song comfort any of you who too are going through the valley.


When You lead me to the valley of vision
I can see You in the heights
And though my humbling wouldn’t be my decision
It’s here Your glory shines so bright
So let me learn that the cross precedes the crown
To be low is to be high
That the valley’s where You make me more like Christ

Chorus
Let me find Your grace in the valley
Let me find Your life in my death
Let me find Your joy in my sorrow
Your wealth in my need
That You’re near with every breath
In the valley

In the daytime there are stars in the heavens
But they only shine at night
And the deeper that I go into darkness
The more I see their radiant light
So let me learn that my losses are my gain
To be broken is to heal
That the valley’s where Your power is revealed

    I PRESSED THE SEND BUTTON TO QUICKLY. I WANTED TO GO ON TO SAY YOU'RE RIGHT WHERE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE. HIM HAVING A STUDENT SUCH AS YOU IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF PRAISE. I THINK. I DON'T KNOW. IT'S JUST WHAT I FELT LED TO SAY.

  4. Love the words to this song. I watch Super Soul Sunday on the OWN channel today. The guest was a woman named Caroline Myss. She said so many wonderful things, too many to list here but I will share a few. "If you have life your have purpose" "Have no judgement about yours life, no expectations and give up the need to know what happens tomorrow. You need to be fully present right now and appreciate all that you have right now" Your now is getting pretty awesome.

  6. It feels so good to read a post from you. Have missed communicating with you. Not feeling sorry for you, but my heart does ache for you. Trusting that God has something in the valley and knowing He is with you every step even when you feel alone. Praying there will be a breakthrough soon...
