Long Term Valleys
Summary question from chapter 9: Does God allow us to go threw long term valley’s, or rather long term trails? Short answer, Yes! God never promises that our life is going to be easy. The apostles had to suffer big time. Where would we ever get the idea that we would not have to endure any long term trials? I’m not sure if the author of this book thinks that every believer thinks, that they will never have to endure anything, because as a believer, I understand that life is hard and honestly, never fair. Does it suck? Heck yes it does, but it’s par for the course. Larry Osborne stated that there are three different kinds of valley’s. One is a valley that is God induced, second is a valley that is self induced, and third is the valley that comes with no reasons.
I tend to get myself into many pickles and boy does it take a lot of get out of those. On the contrary, the ones that are God induced, tend to be very intense and make you feel like throwing in the towel. Everyone is going to have these valley’s, otherwise known as up’s and down’s. Putting it into prospective will help you figure out where to go from there.
