For You Are With Me

It’s a perfect day, really. 

The sky is clear and the temperature is mild. 

Even though it is cold and wintry in many places at this time of year, in my own yard wild flowers are blooming and new, green leaves are sprouting from plants. 

It was a very good day for a funeral, and that is where I have been this morning. The father of a very good friend passed away. 

The service was encouraging as the pastor spoke of my friend’s father and the importance of having a relationship with God, our Heavenly Father. 

After arriving home, I went about my day as usual. While pausing to look out my front door, I noticed the shadow of a small, barren tree on the walkway. 

Immediately, I thought of this verse from the Bible:

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

—Psalm 23:4

God will never leave us. 

He removes fear from our hearts. 

He comforts us. 

Even through the valley….
