Valley of Fear

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here


When the pain of loss is deep within; the grief reaches down and grabs your soul. Gray skies, a sun without  rays, too weary to pray. Emptiness whispers silently in your ear, “Your heart’s gripped with fear”.

Look over the valley across the way, the friend you need is right on your

path, soon you will have joy maybe even laugh.

All you have to do is invite him into the depths of your being.

 Jesus will carry your burdens up the mountain, strengthen you

 to climb up this side of the pain. He will never leave you nor

forsake you. His love erasing the marks of anguish from your heart. In him

you can have a new start.

Rise above the darkness, dance in the rain.

Living…Breathing…Laughing

    Shameeca,

    I love your poem. Although my story is a bit different, I can relate. I spent half of my teenage years in the foster care system, but I turned to drugs and alcohol for an escape. I collided with Jesus when I was twenty-seven, a single mother of two daughters on Active Duty. MY life has changed dramatically. I am well acquainted with sorrow, but today I am learning to Just Be ~ HIS.

    Would love to hear more about your story, and I cannot wait to read your book. Please stop by and connect with me @justturnthepageblog.blogspot.com. Looking forward to reading more of your writing.

    In Christ,
    Samantha Coon
