Valley Praise

Valley. Hard time. Struggle. Test

We all have different names for those times we don’t feel our best.

For those moments where you feel tried and don’t know if you'll make it through.

Not sure if your best will be good enough and if your dreams will ever come true.

You sit going back and forth, left and right, up and down

Wondering if you’ll ever get your peace back and return to a mind that is sound.

Carrying burdens of doubt.

Staring at strongholds of fear.

Hoping things will get better in a day, a month, a year.

We have all been.

Please, I’ve had a few trips to this place too.

Right now I’m talking to you from a higher place,

so let me share how I made it through.

First, tear down those fear strongholds with faith.

Command your soul to believe no matter what you see.

Remind yourself that you serve the Almighty God

And you are a child of the King of Kings.

Then sit down those burdens of doubt.

Allow the Father to pick them up and turn things around.

Trust Him to lead you down the right path

and plant your feet on solid ground.

You see, escape comes with faith.

The two go hand-in-hand.

So, you must seek the Lord’s face

and on His Word, you must stand.

So, know that He’s got you

and you won’t be there always.

Now lift your hands

and give God a valley praise.
