God gives us the vision, then he takes us down to the valley to batter us into the shape of the vision, and it is in the valley that so many of us faint and give way. Every vision will be made real if we will have patience.
How have your experiences in the valley shaped you for living in higher places?

God qualifies his chosen. The process is not easy, but God shapes us into our intended purpose as we yield to him.
“You are the potter; I am the clay. Mold me and make me, after Thy will. While I am waiting, yielded and still.”

Being shaped in the valley… hmmm… where do I start?! I have spent a lot of time in the valley! It’s an expression of God’s mercy, that He would allow me to see the areas in my heart that need refining and reshaping, so that when we ascend the mountain together again, I will be prepared for what’s ahead. Psalm 24! Who will ascend the mountain of the Lord – those with clean hands and pure hearts. This has been a passage on my heart for a while, and going into this new year, continues to give me the perspective needed to weather the storms well. Blessings!
Beautiful! Thank you so much for responding. Blessings on your climb.
