Talk to me, Abba.
All of the valleys and hardships are supposed to produce something in you. Your struggle is opening the way for you to become who you need to be. People of depth, character, and compassion are never born out of easy circumstance. They are whittled slowly. They are sharpened with great force and tribulation. Why do you beg to be free of pain and beg to be full of the character that pain will produce? Walk through the valley with Me. I am the point of all of this. I am truly the outcome you desire.
"Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me, our rod and your staff, they comfort me." Psalm 23:4
