Built For the Valley



“We are not built for the mountains and the dawns and the aesthetic affinities, those are for moments of inspiration, that is all. We are built for the valley, for the ordinary stuff we are in, and that is where we have to prove our mettle.” Oswald Chambers

Several years ago, in the wake of Revival meetings, our church was on a spiritual “high” of sorts.  At choir practice our music minister gave us this gentle warning: “It is at these times we are vulnerable to the enemy’s desire to discourage us. When we come down from the place where everything has a special glow about it and where our spirits soared in the palpable presence of the Lord, we are apt to feel a bit low as we enter once again into the ‘ordinary’ of daily life.”........

Please join me at Laced With Grace today. We'll talk about living in the valley.
Thank you so much.

Blessings,
Linda

Headed that way. Oswald Chambers is one of my favorites.
