Yesterday in church, we sang this song and the first few lines stayed with me throughout the service:
Our God is awesome
He can move mountains
Keep me in the valley
Hide me from the rain
Coincidentally (or not), I had been singing that song all week. It struck me that the valley experiences we fight against may be God's way of protecting us, shielding us from harm or from things we're not yet ready for.
This week, praise God for keeping you in the valley...hiding you from the rain. Selah.
