God carries us through the valleys and up and over the mountains. I heard a sermon last fall online that stuck with me. The mountaintops don’t support life–very little grows up there. It looks gorgeous and seems like the best part. But there are always more summits in the distance. But the valleys, oh the valleys. They are filled with growth, renewal, freshness. Yes, it also has its rough parts. But it the valleys that give us the sustenance to reach for the summits.
We will always have valleys and summits, but with Jesus by our side we will walk them with confidence and peace.
