Psalm 23:4 (and for some reason also about Kanye)

One of the most commonly referred to and well-known phrases in the Bible is Psalm 23:4.

This Psalm even made it into a very popular Kanye West song (not sure how the Psalm feels about that...).

Psalm 23:4: Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…

I think this Psalm is saying two things that are equally important.

#1. We, as Christians, are walking through the valley.

Daily. Some valleys more ominous and deep than others.

However, we are not LEFT in the valley. We are not STRANDED or STUCK in the valley.

We will make it to the other side. We are merely walking through.

#2. We, as Christians, are walking through the valley (man that looks like #1).

God isn’t hovering us ABOVE the valley, or taking us AROUND the valley.

He’s taking us right smack dab in the middle and through the valley.

That’s about as inspirational/deep as I can get today.

Being nine weeks pregnant with a toddler…whew!

Other people should add their thoughts so I don’t have to. Thanks.
