We all have days where our hearts are heavy. You might feel that things haven't turned out as you had planned. The truth is that it's not really your plan that matters, it's God's plan. Sometimes we pity ourselves for the issues and burdens we face; God is not unaware! He sees what you're going through and His heart breaks for you, but He also sees the big picture and knows that it's only for a moment that you must deal with the pain. Take a sober look at your life. You've had your ups and downs, but that's the thing, there have been ups! The valley is not forever! As a matter of fact, the ground in the valley is quite fertile, plant a garden while you're there so you can have a picnic when you head back up that mountain. The water that flows from the mountain top down into the valley is the purest. So eat and drink so that you have the strength to begin your ascent. Remember, you're not alone on your journey, He will never leave you or forsake you!
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6
