Bummed in the valley

Just a little note to write out my feelings today. I got some disappointing news today and I am a little bummed in the valley. It seems I have been in the valley for a while now. However I have read so many inspirational things about it I have not been discouraged.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;

I read Footprints last night and it is so true. God is there, carrying me when he needs to. And yes it is better to walk through the valley with Him than to stand on the mountaintop alone. However today I do feel a little discouraged. I do not see the light at the end of the tunnel. Even though I know it is coming, I feel like I have been walking around blind for so long I just want to sit and wait to be rescued. I know He uses the darkness to teach us things we would not see in the light. I know all these things. I'm just running a little low on faith today I guess. I am still not very good in the patience department.

Hi Venus! I'm sorry you're having a down day - they happen, that's for sure. I said a prayer for you. I don't know if this helps or not, but I wanted to share with you what my theme verse/slogan is for 2009. It is 'Stay the Course' and Phil. 3:13-14, "Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us." I hope it helps. Bless you, my friend!
