Sometimes in sunlight clear;
But whether in gloom or brightness
The Lord is very near.
Sometimes I walk in the valley,
Sometimes on the mountain crest,
But whether on low or high land,
The Lord is manifest.
Sometimes I walk in the desert,
Sometimes in waters cold,
But whether by sands or streamlets
The Lord doth me enfold.
Sometimes I walk in green pastures,
Sometimes on barren land;
But whether in peace or danger
The Lord holds fast my hand.
This poem sums up exactly how it feels to live the life of a Christian. Times will not always be sunny, happy, safe, healthy or joyful. There will be times of disappointment, sadness, sorrow, darkness and sickness. But as long as we walk with God we know we will grow into better people and come out of valley with a story to share and hope to keep us going. It also reminds us that the Lord is ALWAYS with us through the good and the bad times. He walks with us and never lets go of our hand.
So keep hanging on and keep your faith and I promise one day you will be at top of your mountain, shining in the sun!
