melissa_vereen • "Peace isnt the absence of distraction or annoyance or pain. Its finding Him, finding peace and calm, in the midst of those distractions and annoyances and pains." •

Some seasons are hard. Some seasons, you're stuck in the valley surrounded by dark looming skies and storms that just won't let up. You know those times when everything goes pear shaped. Your job is rough. Your life is busy. Your relationships with others are strained from the hustle and bustle of life. You go in for a regular check up and it turns you on your head as you get results that could potentially change everything.

It's in these seasons, when everything is loud but at the same time- it's dead silent.

It's in the moments of silence that the Lord is loudest, begging you to "Be Still" and "Draw close". It's in these moments in the stormy valley that are ugly with brokenness, bitterness and fear that you find beauty and grace and wholeness in Him.
The great things about storms, they end, leaving beautifully refreshed plants ready to grow. The same with us. You fight for those friendships. You tough out the stinky situations. You proclaim faith over your doctors scary diagnosis and find out in your follow up - they were wrong. You're in the clear!!!

So here is to seasons in the valley, that set you aflame for what you know is true.
God is good. God is faithful. God is for us.

Here's to a year (and lifetime) of being fearlessly brave and bold, knowing that while things are thrown your way are mighty and frightening- my God is mightier than anything I face.

((Shout out @hillsongunited for giving me a night I'll never forget, reminding me I'm a daughter of a King who never forgets me!))
