It’s in the valley’s that we grow

I found this on the internet, and I remember probably getting it in my email at one time or another. Its a great reminder of Gods love for us and why we need to sometimes struggle with difficult things in our lives. I know for myself, its very true, looking back on some of the really hard times in my life; the only thing I could do was to cry out to God to help me make sense out of what I was going through and to teach me what I was suppose to learn from it all. I always tell God, “hey, if your gonna put me through some junk in this life, you’d better let me learn a thing or two from it”. That’s not always an easy conversation to have, but I have come to find that it is the best one to have when you are in the middle of a mess. God loves us, and he never lets go. I hope this poem will remind you that we need to struggle to become closer to God and his will for our lives.

Sometimes life seems hard to bear,
Full of sorrow, trouble and woe
It’s then I have to remember
That it’s in the valleys I grow.

If I always stayed on the mountain top
And never experienced pain,
I would never appreciate God’s love
And would be living in vain.

I have so much to learn
And my growth is very slow,
Sometimes I need the mountain tops,
But it’s in the valleys I grow.

I do not always understand
Why things happen as they do,
But I am very sure of one thing.
My Lord will see me through.

My little valleys are nothing
When I picture Christ on the cross
He went through the valley of death;
His victory was Satan’s loss.

Forgive me Lord, for complaining
When I’m feeling so very low.
Just give me a gentle reminder
That it’s in the valleys I grow.

Continue to strengthen me, Lord
And use my life each day
To share your love with others
And help them find their way.

Thank you for valleys, Lord
For this one thing I know
The mountain tops are glorious
But it’s in the valleys I grow!

Have a blessed day!

  1. I’ve seen this before also. But again…it’s good every time. There’s a whole lot of truth here.

    “But I am very sure of one thing.
    My Lord will see me through.” I really love that statement.
