Not sure who the author is but I thank God for it and would love to share it with you too! 🙂


It’s in the Valley We Grow


Sometimes life seems hard to bear

Full of sorrow, trouble and woe

It’s then we have to remember

That it’s in the valleys we grow.


If we always stayed on the mountain top

And never experienced pain,

We would never appreciate God’s love

And would be living in vain.


We have so much to learn

And our growth is very slow,

Sometimes we need the mountain tops,

But it’s in the valleys we grow.


We do not always understand

Why things happen as they do,

But I am very sure of one thing.

My Lord will see me through.


The little valleys are nothing

When we picture Christ on the cross

He went through the valley of death;

His victory was Satan’s loss.


Forgive me Lord, for complaining

When I’m feeling so very low.

Just give me a gentle reminder

That it’s in the valleys I grow.


Continue to strengthen me, Lord

And use my life each day

To share your love with others

And help them find their way.


Thank you for the valleys, Lord

For this one thing I know

The mountain tops are glorious

But it’s in the valleys I grow!


Psalm 23

[1] The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

[2] He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.

[3] He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.

[4] Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort.
