Hills and Valleys
In life there are always going to be hills and valleys, but what we do in the valley counts just as much as what we do on the mountain top. We can make a choice to live like with the same integrity in the valley as we do on the mountain top. Or we can complain and make life miserable for ourselves and those around us. Will you be someone who is the same when they are being watched, as you are behind closed doors? What is it that people see when you are in the valley? Do they see the Joy of the Lord? Do they see someone who lives with honour and integrity? Do they see someone who reflects the one, they live for? Or do they see someone who is bitter and complaining. Maybe if we learned to live different when the valleys came and saw them as something to cross, a challenge to forge, rather than a place to sit and give up, we wouldn’t stay there nearly so long. Let your character be developed. Come out the other side stronger and more in love, with your first love.
