As I Walk Through The Valley…


Some of my most favorite things about King David was his vulnerability, realness, faithfulness, bravery, boldness, and his willingness to be who God created him to be. When he wrote Psalms, he wrote it from the depths of his heart with pure intent. David was real….David felt so much love for God, even though his life was not perfect.

   David fought Goliath, the uncircumcised Philistine Giant, with only a stone and a sling and he won!
 David fought bears and lions using only his bare hands and once again he won the battles in front of him!
  Each of these “experiences” molded David into who he was called to be.

Psalm 23 (NIV)

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord

 ~David was not called a man after God’s own heart because of his success in winning the battles nor was it the times that he failed God, it was his persistent trust in God despite the circumstances or the deepest darkest valleys that he walked through.


~David was a winner because he trusted God at all times and in all situations. Even though he walked through the darkest valley, he had no fear because God was always with him. 


~God does not promise that you won’t walk through deep, dark valleys, but he does promise that he will always be with you. 

 ~God promises to lead and guide you along the still waters, he promises to never leave you or forsake you during your battles. 
 ~God is a present help in time of need and with God on your side…your battles will be won!
 Will you allow God to walk beside you and guide you through your valley today?

  1. It’s always encouraging to read the Psalms and see how David poured out his heart to God and found peace in his darkest moments, forgiveness for his sins and much more. We don’t have to pretend before God. We can unburden ourselves before Him and trust Him to see us through whatever confronts us like David did. Thanks for sharing.
    And your blog is sooo beautiful and cheerful. Bless you! ❤️
