Several years ago I read a book by Iyanla Vanzant entitled The Value in the Valley. Couldn’t put my hands on the book today but as I thought about today’s letter V valley was one of the words that stuck out in my mind.
We all have had experiences of walking along various valleys in our life. Some times our stay in the valley extends much longer than we would naturally volunteer to abide. But even the low, depressed places of life have significant value. However, I am not always able to see that at first glance but when I change my view and remember that I am always in God’s omniscient view.
Some of the most profound, life-changing revelations I received have been in the midst of the dark valley. It was in the valley that I caught new glimpses of God.
Even when I walk through the dark valley of death, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. Psalms 23:4 NLT
