More Precious Than Gold

The Valley of Trials

You have come through
the valley of trials,
and have found Me faithful.
You’ve wept and cried out,
worshipped, and leaned hard on Me,
and always—always
I’ve been by your side.

I’ve sung over you
and rejoiced to hear you pick
up the song
and sing it back to Me.
I’ve held you close
to My heart
when yours was breaking.

I’ve promised your joy will return
and will watch and
wait with you,

until you find it to be so.
I am all you need,
no matter
the season, trial or test.

I have found your tested faith more precious than gold.

I have sought you out,
chosen and called you to come to Me.
I am your very source of
the Bread of life and Living water.
and I’ll be what it takes
to meet your need.

These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure.
 It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold, and your faith
is far more precious to God than mere gold. 1 Peter1:7

    • Norma,
      This came to me just recently as I sat down for my quiet time. The words just flooded my heart and mind. I grabbed my journal and started writing, weeping the whole time. It’s all about grace and the gift of His presence through our lives, isn’t it? Thank you for sharing. It just confirms it was meant to be shared. Love you dear friend.
