Valley of Grief

Penned:  June 18,2014

In the valley we are learning

what it means to walk by faith and not by sight.

Cause what I have seen, I don’t want to recall.

But what was not tangible in the deepest of night

is what I could see clearest of all.

It’s that peace that defies reason,

it’s the hope beyond the pain.

It’s the breath we keep on taking

though we’ll never be the same.

It’s the beauty that rises from the ashes.

It’s the hope that drowns out the fear.

It’s the love of my Savior

that wipes away every tear.

I cannot imagine this without Jesus.

He has been here from the start

and he only drew closer

when he knew this would break our hearts.

But the things I have seen,

you can’t see with your eyes.

I wish you had time so I could explain

how our Lord has held us

and carries us through this pain.
