Footsteps Of Love

My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

In The Valley

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 valley 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 the valleys, Lord
For this one thing I know,
The mountain tops are glorious
But it's in the valleys I grow......

    Thank you both for visiting. Yes, we have to keep our eyes focused on God. It's nice to be on the mountaintops every now and then, but what would life be without the valleys too? God is truly awsome! Come back soon!

    Hello forgivenforever,
    That was a very good poem. Our human tendency is to seek to just always be on the mountain tops and enjoy the scenic views in life, but it's so true that the valleys are an essential part of a Christian's life.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and posting a comment on it. Do check back from time to time.

    I agree. We cannot grow in Christ's love and glorify him to the fullest unless we go through some of the same trials as He went through. Thanks for visiting. come back soon!
