Father, help us see the beautiful that you have waiting for us on the other side of the brutal.
For your word says, "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." -Psalm 23:4
Or Lord, remind us today that You don't put us in the dark valley and you don't leave us there either! You get us THROUGH it while comforting us in the process. We imagine you taking us by the hand and saying, "come on my child, let's get You out of this, I've got something great on the other side that will reward You for obeying me."
-In Jesus' name, Amen.
