Mountaintops Inspire Leaders, But Valleys Mature Them…Winston Churchill
Have you ever gone through a valley in your life? Perhaps it was a time when unexpected circumstances suddenly came crashing down on you? Maybe it was a time when it seemed as though everyone even God himself had abandoned you. In life, many will be no strangers to calamity and hardship. Some of us already know what it is like to face difficulties. We can all speak of our own shortcomings, weaknesses, and questions we face in life. For example, I came from the school of hard knocks etc…etc… blah blah blah woo woo woo… I am a man who knows what it is like to need God’s help in more ways than one but that’s another subject for another day… Anyway, I don’t like valleys I prefer mountaintops I like the sun to be shining the birds singing, my wife smiling and whistling. I like good times. I don’t like or want friction….However, you see that mountaintop in the distance? The way to that mountaintop is through that valley. We all go through those valleys in life, hard times. Whatever valley it is, you’re going through remember this nugget I learned and am sharing with you, you are not alone. That is God’s great promise to the believer…G.L.
