Spiritual Sunday, I Will Carry You



Spiritual Sunday, what a wonderful way to relax and spend time with the Lord. Please stop by and visit other participants as they share devotions and uplifting music in praise of our almighty God. Thank you to Charlotte and Ginger for hosting this awesome event. It's a great way to start the week. Many blessings from my home to yours. May the Lord keep you safe in all that you do.

Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain.

God is our comfort when things appear bleak. The psalmist is looking ahead and what does he see? He sees deep uncrossable valleys and steep mountains and hills. The terrain is uneven and rough before him. Things look very bad. Do you ever feel that way? Everywhere you look there are obstacles or barriers. It doesn’t seem like there is much hope. But this verse tells us every valley shall be lifted up – every low point in our life will be raised. Every mountain shall be made low – every obstacle in our way will come down. The uneven ground shall become level – the rollercoaster of our life will be calmed. And the rough places a plain – God will smooth out the rough places. God will help us through whatever we have to go through. No matter how bleak things may appear, remember God is our comfort.


How comforting to know that our God will carry us when we are weary.


Blessings,
