Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, YOU will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth YOU will again bring me up. Psalm 71: 20 NIV 

Life doesn’t always go as planned. Sometimes, we become frustrated by unexpected circumstances that lead us far away from calm. Our faith is tested to the limits and we’re weakened by the worry in our lives. 

When God moves us through the valleys, He provides everything we need to find STRENGTH. He shows how it feels to TRUST. He humbles our hearts to focus on Him and prepares us to handle the climb. 

When we feel the PEACE of His presence, God shows what needs to be done. He opens our eyes and readies us to journey with Him. He reminds us He IS BIGGER than our fear. 

The Bible says, “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5: 18. God is greater than anything we will have to conquer. He has great plans for our days! He will strengthen our hearts and reward the prayers of our praise. 

There WILL be mountains to climb. But, God will move us along. He will provide His strength and lift us when we fall. He will cradle us in care and guide us back where we belong. He will set our feet on solid ground, so we can keep on going… 

When our hearts have been humbled, God will show how it feels to welcome the blessing of a grateful heart. He is worthy of PRAISE. He is worthy of our LOVE. There will never be a day without His greatness. His strength will always “bring us up!” 

Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your everlasting love. Forgive us when we forget YOU are SO much bigger than the mountains we must climb. We will put our faith in You and focus on the gifts of Your greatness. We will give YOU praise, as You remove our fear and help us remember we will NEVER have to journey alone. Amen
