In the Valley

The Lord is never in a hurry
not like men who rush & worry,
expecting answers right away
just because they stop to pray!

The easy road is their desire
not one with thorns or briars.
but the primrose path is not for us,
and never was for the Lord Jesus!

We grow in the valley instead,
a lonely place we shouldn't dread.
for it's there we seek God's way,
develop patience and obey!

When God thinks we're maturing,|
persevering and enduring,
we'll be rescued from that place
by the power of His grace!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
