Walking Through The Valley

Psalm 23:4 NKJV 
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

"I'm sorry to tell you this, but Miss Thelma has just passed away." This was the news we received during our Judgement House a few months ago. To say we were in shock was an understatement. Miss Thelma was the type of lady who was a prayer warrior. She would pray over every pew and the choir loft each Sunday morning. With this news, our church began walking through a valley. As we walked through, we couldn't stay there. We had to keep going with what God was having us do. We couldn't stay in that place of sadness and grief; we had to move beyond it because God wouldn't want us to stay in a place of grief. Just as we couldn't stay in the valley from Miss Thelma's death, God doesn't want us to stay in the valley of financial despair, job loss or sickness. What valley are you facing today? Let me encourage you, ask the Lord to help you move forward in what He has for you.

Father, thank You for the valleys of life. But God, help each us to move past the valleys of our life. Give us the strength we need to move forward in what You have for us. In Jesus Name, Amen.
