Song: “Lily in the Valley”-John P. Kee & NLCC

I never knew what the words to this song meant.  Some of the simplest words I have ever heard, I grew up singing this song as a child in church. Today the meaning of this song finally hit me out of nowhere.  I began to cry, a mixture of tears of joy and hurt.  

These words never seemed clearer to me until now.  I am in a valley, lower than I ever though I could be.  I am no longer on the top of the mountain.  I am at the bottom looking up, wondering how I got here.  I have to be thankful for this valley though.  In this valley is where I found peace, joy, and Jesus and he was bright as the morning star. I don’t know what is going to happen while I am here in this valley, but I do know that I am not alone.  My Father God walks all around me.  He walks beside me  allowing me to feel his presence, he walks behind me guarding me from evils I can’t see, he walks before me making clear the path ahead of me. What a mighty God we serve!! He didn’t leave us in the valley alone.  He whispers to us, words of encouragement.  I will not stumble or fall, he has already cleared the path for me.  I am not alone, I feel his presence.  

I know now that I can’t do this on my own, I need Jesus here with me in this valley.
