Mountains & Valleys

Posted on December 17th, 2015.

The mountaintops are beautiful. Everyone knows the best views can be seen from the highest point. If you’ve ever driven a scenic mountain road, you’ll travel through the lush valleys to the highest peaks. Somewhere between 10,000 and 13,000 feet elevation, you’ll reach the tree line and notice that nothing grows beyond that point. Growth happens in the valley.

Most of us would rather live on the “mountaintop” where all we see is beauty. I’m happy to do without the struggles and difficulties of life! But it’s in the “valleys” where we grow and learn. We learn to depend on Christ and discover His sustaining grace through the hardest situations we face.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God and those who are the called according to His purpose.
Romans 8:28
