Today I ponder the Valley of the Shadow of Death plummeted by wind and water.
Suddenly I see something marvelous: The canyon floor begins to lighten.
The sun suddenly pierces through the clouds announcing
a new day, revealing, not a storm but a waterfall cascading down the rocks
onto the canyon floor. The source of the water is the very throne of God
out of which flows the River of Life. The wind is the Holy Spirit blowing
through the canyon of death. I hear a whisper:
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
