side, you can't lose. For all that is lost is the self part of your
The ups and downs of life, I like to call the valley. The
slopes, the bumps, the rocks, the ledges. These are all part of the
valley. There may be sharp edges, and there may be smooth
may be grassy knolls to rest your feet, and there may be rough places
to challenge your endurance . But God is the "God of the
Valley” as well as the "God of the Mountaintop.”
God loves to take your rough places, and make them smooth. He loves to
take the rough edges, and sand them to where they ought to be. He likes

salvation belongs to Him and in no other.
For Jesus is the “I
AM”. “He is” the one you can count on to
smooth out your problems, and to rest in when you need an oasis.
“He is” and can be your refuge. “He
is” your strength, if you let him. “He
is” and can be your I AM.

done. But when all is said and done, God will have made you into a
masterpiece. He knew that before He even started. We just
don’t see it all. And He’s not finished yet!
