Inspirational Song for Today: Hills and Valleys

Image result for god will help us through the hills and valleys

As I heard this song today, memories of our struggles to break free from the darkness of our past came flooding back to me. But as we look back, we never see a straight, upward path. What we actually see are hills and valleys with stumbling blocks and stepping stones. You see, every obstacle that we face can either become a stumbling block or it can be a stepping stone to our futures, depending on how we persevere. But God always wants us to overcome as we go through these hills and valleys with His ultimate plan for us to climb the mountain He has placed before us. God will help us through our struggles… we just have to learn to trust Him through each valley as well as the top of each hill and allow Him to help us eventually climb the mountain.Image result for our path versus God's path

“Hills and Valleys” by Tauren Wells

I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days
And I’ve prayed prayers to heaven from my lowest place
And I have held Your blessings
God You give and take away
No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love

(chorus)
On the mountains I will bow my life to the One who set me there
In the valley I will lift my eyes to the One who sees me there
When I’m standing on the mountain I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley I know I am not alone
You’re God of the hills and valleys, hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

I’ve watched my dreams get broken
In You I hope again
No matter what
I know I’m safe inside Your hands

(chorus)
On the mountains I will bow my life to the One who set me there
In the valley I will lift my eyes to the One who sees me there
When I’m standing on the mountain I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley I know I am not alone
You’re God of the hills and valleys, hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

Father You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all You will remain over it all

On the mountains I will bow my life
In the valley I will lift my eyes

(chorus)
On the mountains I will bow my life to the One who set me there
In the valley I will lift my eyes to the One who sees me there
When I’m standing on the mountain I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley I know I am not alone
You’re God of the hills and valleys, hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

And I will choose to say
Blessed be Your name
And I am not alone
