Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;

your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:4



One day at a time, Lord,

I’ll walk through this valley

One day at a time

I’ll pick my battles in praise

One day at a time, Lord,

I’ll step through this journey

One day at a time

Only with Your hand in mine.

What is the valley of the shadow of death you are walking through? What is the deepest, hardest, darkest path you’ve ever trod?


I’ve been walking a dark path for a few years. I don’t talk about it, mostly to protect a person I love and their privacy. This person is so special to me. I love her with all my heart.


But her path is deep and dark. She battles depression, anxiety, panic attacks and other “demons” I will never be able to understand. I have done hours of research, I have tried to understand; but, since I’ve never walked her path, I will never completely know what she is going through.


There is one thing I do know. I know a God who does miracles. I know a God who cares beyond any love we can even begin to imagine. I know a God who will heal her, save her, and give her the freedom she seeks.


I don’t know when this miracle will happen. But God is patient, and He will supply our every need. He will help us bear this burden, and He will see us safely through the other side of this valley.


One day at a time. Sometimes it is an hour or a minute at a time. With God, everything is possible. Still, I will praise Him. Because in that praise I will find His hand of comfort and peace.


From My Heart to Yours,

Marcie 🙂
