THIS TOO SHALL PASS!!
( I wrote this 3 years ago. This morning looking through the window from the 3rd floor -FB reminded me. This is for me, thank you, Lord)
( Dedicating This To All The Wonderful People in one dark Valley or another )
(2 Corinthians 4:17-: For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;)
# As the year is gradually coming to an end, and you may be still navigating through -:-
# The dark valleys of sickness
# The dark valleys of grief over the sudden death of a loved one
# The dark valley of a messy divorce and separation
# The dark valley of a job loss or bankruptcy
# The dark valley of substance abuse and addictions, in your family
# The dark valley of depression and despair
# The dark Valley of shame, rejection and humiliations
# The dark valley of suicidal thought and hopelessness
# The dark valley of fear of failure and disappointment
(Matthew 2:20B-: lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.)
# No matter how dark your valley is today, remember child of God. Our God has promised us, that He will be with us always, even up to the end of times, ages and all stages of our lives.
# The Lord, also promised never to leave use or forsake us. You are not, alone child of God
(Hebrews 13:5-: Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.)
# No matter how dark your valley is today. Remember the words of our brother King David that says
# ”though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, my God is always with me”)
# I want you to boldly declare with me right now, that the Lord, is your helper and you shall not fear tens of thousands
(Hebrews 13:6-: So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.)
# You may feel alone and abandoned in your valley of sickness, depression, fear and anxiety
# That is a lie from the pit of hell. You are not alone.
# Your Lord, and savour Jesus Christ. A friend who sticks closer than a any brother or friend is watching over you and He’s always with you.
# ( YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS YOUR INVISIBLE, EVER-PRESENT HELP IN TIMES OF NEED )
# “for Him who watches over you and me, never sleeps nor slumbers”
# As you navigate your way through your valleys today.
# I want you to be comforted and encouraged in this knowledge, that the all-powerful God,
# your father is watching over you, and at the fullness of time, everything shall turn around in your favour, you will see.
# And everything will soon, start working for your good.
# Believe me. Above all, trust in the Lord, and remember what He told us in
( John 14:1-2-: Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.)
# His ears are not deaf that He cannot hear you, nor are His arms too, shut to save. He is a faithful Father and a promise keeper.
# the Lord, has promised to answer us when we call and has also promised to be with us in all our troubles.
# Be encouraged and stay strong
# ( He is not the kind of father that abandons His own, in their times of trouble or hours of need)
# He will not only deliver us from trouble, But He will also honour us, and give us double blessings for standing strong in our times of trouble and not abandoning the faith.
# Be encouraged for your loving father has prepared a big banquet feast of victory for you, at the end of this dark Valley experience of yours.
# You shall not end your life in the Valley of sickness, depression and anxiety
# Child of God receives strength and encouragement to walk through your Valley (like King David ) and not run out in haste before the process of your character formation and transformation is completed by the Holy Spirit.
# Hear this, the valley is a place of great character formation and transformation. Stand strong and walk through it with your chin up and shoulder high.
# Your, God is walking the whole distance with you and it shall all end in praise.
EVEN THIS SHALL END IN PRAISE
