I remember the God who was faithful to walk with me through those valleys.
I remember that once I had eyes willing to see Him and arms willing to reach for Him, my life changed forever.
Hope wrapped tight around me and has held me ever since.
I remember how the challenging seasons taught me a lesson I now desire to carry with me for the rest of my life:
Ever chapter is in need of a hero who is bigger and stronger than me.
On Monday, Roger and I will have been married for thirteen years. This morning, I listened, again, to one of the songs we chose to have sung during our wedding ceremony.
I listened to the lyrics, I remembered, and I cried.
I never want to forget. I will walk through the valley in order stand in that place where the beauty of His redeeming love and His amazing grace takes my breath away…again and again.
“In the beauty of holiness
We see You Son of righteousness
So we bring all that we possess
To lay at Your feet
In the place where Your glory shines
Jesus lover of all mankind
You have drawn us
With love sublime
To make us complete.
So I pause at Your gates once more
As my heart and spirit soar
And I wish I could love You more
My God and my King.
Is there tribute that I could bring
Was there ever a song to sing
That could ever express, my King
The work that You’ve done
Could I ever conceive of this
All the depths and the heights
And breadth of the riches
I now possess because of Your love.”
