i’ve always clung to this psalm, but this promise has never been so life-giving. that He is with me. His ridiculous call to ‘fear no evil,' though all around is death and tears and pain, is empowered by His promise of presence. He doesn’t always bring us out of life’s valleys, but He walks beside us.
and if that sounds cliche, wait till you hear it when you’re in this valley… then your soul will drink it in like water in a desert.
