Remembering God's Grace Throughout the Seasons of Life
Sovereign God, we confess this morning that you often bring us to the valley of vision. Here, we live in the depths, only to see you in the heights. We are often hemmed in by many foes, but still, we see your glory.
Let us learn by paradox: that the repenting soul is the victorious soul, that to have nothing is to possess all, that to bear the cross is to wear the crown, that the valley is the place of vision.
Oh Gracious Father, let us find: your light in our darkness, your joy in our sorrow, your riches in our poverty, your glory in our valley.
