Sunday Night March 18, 2007

It took all day for Katy to get going but once she did she was able to join us for small group tonight. Our time together was so important. The things we are learning together are shared, and the fellowship is so sweet. Katy is having bone pain, but remains hopeful that her body will adjust to the Prednisone tapers. This evening during our devotions we talked about the phrase, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.” Paul made the point that the valley is not where we are forced to stay. The valley is something we walk through on our way to somewhere else. The valley doesn’t last forever. And it is in the valley that the presence of the Lord is near. These are comforting words to ponder as we begin another week with hope in our hearts.

    What a beautiful point about the trials we endure… praise the Lord that they are not meant to stay! It’s uplifting to hear that you have pockets of peace even through the pain. Continuing to pray for you all.

    Katy,
    I’ve often pondered the scene in Pilgrim’s Progress where Pilgrim goes through the Valley of the Shadow. It’s such a wonderful part of the book because even though the way is so treacherous and awful, the Lord brings him through it and as he nears the end of the valley, he sees light. After he comes out, he finds a friend to walk with him and encourage him. It’s such a comfort to know that God takes care of us like that, even when we can’t see the way ahead!! I’ll be praying for a pain-free week!!
    Love and prayers,
    Jen :-)

    Hey guys!
    It’s been a while since I’ve posted - but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking about you all and praying for you! Noah always wants to ’see Katy’ when I log into the computer so this is the first site that we visit when I’m online.

    That is such a great point about not staying in the valley - I know when I’m discouraged, I start to think that the valley is my home forever - and it’s such a lie! :) Thanks for the reminder! We love you guys so much! Praying for less pain and for more fun spring outings!

    Jes
