HILLS and VALLEYS

Have you ever asked WHY Me?

New Christians often ask this question. Life is often NOT as we had planned.

All human life is ‘unpredictable’ No CHILD of GOD is immune.

A thought for today

As hills and valleys define a landscape so God’s Plan for your life and mine will be very different here on earth. His Plan for each one is a unique TAPESTRY as He alone weaves the threads.

This is hard to accept in the valleys but ‘Looking UP’ viewing the whole of life with an eternity perspective encourages us with HOPE and JOY.

Proverbs 3:5

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.

How complex and yet beautiful is the tapestry He may be weaving if you take HIS Hand an simply FOLLOW?.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Your post made me think of the song, God on the Mountain, is the God In the Valley. Life is full of hills and valleys and without the Lord we just drift through them without learning how to walk through them both. Good post.
