One sees great things from the valley, only small things from the peak.
It is all a matter of perspective-
what we see from where we stand
as we walk through the wilderness
of these difficult times.
it takes great strength and determination to climb a peak,
looking down upon the valley left far below
where even mighty mountains seem diminished.
Yet what gives our lives most meaning,
what encourages our faith,
what instills our hope
is how we are met by the Lord
in the darkest of valleys.
He dwells alongside us this week
watching over us,
never leaving us,
always encouraging us
to lift our eyes to the hills,
to gaze at His dream-like peaks above.
