Joy in the Darkest of Valleys

Have you ever had moments in your life when your heart seemingly cannot contain everything, you feel so desperate about expressing them? If having that profound joy in my spirit was a place somewhere, I can say I am there. I just can't simply put into words and sing any song to acknowledge God's goodness in me. The life I have chosen; giving up few things I had was difficult and some people might have thought this is somehow senseless. But I know God of whom I have put all my trust will never forget about me. He'll make ways through the darkest valleys.

I stepped out of my comfort zone. It was never easy yet I have never been this hopeful as before. The Bible says in Hebrews 11:1-2, "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients are commended for." And I believe God will commend those who believe and those who are not blinded by difficulties and adversities.

We could be considered the wisest of men setting things at the right place as we reach our dreams but apart from the Lord, they are worthless and put our toils to nothing. Moreover, we may have had the worst decisions in our lives but it doesn't change God's goodness. He will always remain faithful and His love is still unfailing. Through this, I am always reminded to be humble and praise God in any circumstance.

My heart is grateful, I am satisfied and my faith is unshakable.

"In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps." - Proverbs 16:9
