Sometimes life seems hard to bear,


full of sorrow, trouble and woe.


It's then I have to remember


that it's in the valleys I grow.



If I always stayed on the mountain top


and never experienced pain,


I would never appreciate God's love


and would be living in vain.



I have so much to learn


and my growth is very slow.


Sometimes I need the mountain tops,


but it's in the valleys I grow.






I do not always understand why things happen as they do,


but I am very sure of one thing.


my Lord will see me through.






My little valleys are nothing when I 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 Thy love with others


and help them find their way.




I Thank Thee for valleys, Lord for this one thing I know


the mountain tops are glorious


but it's in the valleys I grow.



Jane Eggleston
