It’s in the Valleys I Grow

This is a poem, I had cut out somewhere & kept.  You may have seen it before.  I think it is well worth mentioning.  I did not write it.  However, love the message it sends.   It’s a good reminder that we can’t always live life on top of the world.  I have heard that if your life is good all the time, you can compare it to sunshine.  Too much sunshine creates a dry, desert.  If your life is bad all the time, you can compare it to rain.  Too much rain, creates a wet, nasty, jungle.   However, the right balance of good & bad develops a place we can prosper & grow.  Hopefully, this is something you can use today.

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 valleys I grow.

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 valleys, Lord

For this one thing I know

The mountain tops are glorious

But it’s in the valleys I grow!

I hope this poem has blessed you.  Maybe it will help to lighten your load & make your day a little brighter.  Thank you for sharing a little bit of time with me.  However, for now, I must go, because I should be washing clothes!
