The Valley

When I’m down in the valley so sad and in despair;
Every time I turn around, the LORD is there.
I push him away thinking “I can do things my way.”
I turn around again, and there he still stays.
I ask him, “why are you still here? I can do things on my own.”
He replies “you’re in this valley for a reason, a point to you I’m trying to show. The mountain top is where you want to be; but in order to get there, you’ll have to trust me.”
I say, “I’ve put my trust in one before, but he broke my heart and walked out the door.”
Jesus assures me, “I am the one that sticketh closer than a brother; when all others forsake you, I’ll be there to love you like no other.”
