Tauren Wells – Hills and Valleys

 

My walk with Christ has been one big soundtrack.  I can hear a song and immediately go back to a time when i head this song.  Songs that remind of of the power of God (God’s Not Dead – Newsboys) to the inspiration that i need at that particuar moment (Lauren Daigle.)

Lately, my “go to song” has been Tauren Wells – Hills and Valleys.  According to his Wiki page, Tauren has been in the music industry for more than 15 years.  The song i am currently in love with Hills and Valleys peaked at number 3 in the charts in 2017.  The song speaks to me with where i am at in my walk with Christ.  I  have been through the highs and the lows of life and i recognize that in it all, Jesus has been with me the whole time.  Such a beautiful song that is beautifully wrttien and speaks to the heart.  I hope you enjoy.  God Bless –  PJSLB.

 

I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
And I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days

And I’ve prayed prayers to Heaven
From my lowest place
And I have held Your blessings
God, You give and take away

No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

I’ve watched my dreams get broken
In You, I hope again
No matter what I know
I’m safe inside Your hands

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there (to the One who set me there)
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone

Father, You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all, You will remain
Over it all

Father, You give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all, You will remain
Over it all

On the mountains, I will bow my life, yeah
In the valley, I will lift my eyes, yeah

On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the One who set me there (to the One who set me there)
In the valley, I will lift my eyes
To the One who sees me there

When I’m standing on the mountain
I didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley
I know I am not alone (I’m not alone)

You’re God of the hills and valleys (yeah)
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys (You’re the God of the hills)
And I am not alone

You’re God of the hills and valleys (yeah)
Hills and valleys
God of the hills and valleys (You’re the God of the hills)
And I am not alone (God of the valleys)

And I will choose to say
Blessed be Your Name
And I am not alone

Stewardship Rewarded

“So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. ‘Put this money to work,’ he said, ‘until I come back.’…The first one came and said, ‘Sir, your mina has earned ten more.’ ‘Well done, my good servant!’ his master replied. ‘Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.’”

Luke 19:13, 16-17

Good stewardship of our spiritual gifts and financial resources will be rewarded in God’s kingdom. There is accountability for what God has entrusted to us. We will all have our conversation with the King. Knowing what we have been given is our first priority. Living with kingdom values as we invest our resources, relationships, gifts and capacity into Christ’s mission and commission must be our priority! The reward for good faith-filled stewardship of what we’ve been given (health, family, vision, faith and so much more) is much greater than we ever imagined. Jesus calls us to lead cities in his kingdom. No assignment is too small to ignore good stewardship.

Lord Jesus, thank you for all I’ve been given. I desire to live with risk-taking obedience as a faithful steward, for your glory.

Be blessed and bless others!

Good afternoon to all! I pray that our Lord continues to bless each and everyone of you. As for me, I am still going through my journey. Life is full of ups and downs but lately, it’s been mostly down for me. The words today from Pastor Rick Warren reminds me that it isn’t about me and my struggles in life. It is about Jesus and what I can do for my God that has done everything for me. You may say “how can he say that when he just said that life has been a struggle” and you would be right to question me. My response is this… no matter how low I get, someone is going thru something worst than me. No matter how lost i feel in this world, in Jesus I have hope. I am secured. I am guaranteed. I pray that we all have this feeling with Christ.

If you have any questions about ANY of this, please ask them. We are all here to bring God the glory. Have a great rest of the day. In Jesus name… PJSLB
