Peace in the Valleys of Life (Day 2)

In a war between the Israelites and the Arameans, God delivered the Israelites.  He said, “Because the Arameans think the Lord is a god of the hills and not a god of the valleys, I will deliver this vast army into your hands, and you will know that I am the Lord.”  Sometimes, we go through valleys so our faith will grow.  When He delivers us from difficulty, we are able to look back and see His power and glory.  I walked for several years through the valley of infertility.  As a teenager, I remember praying over my unborn children.  I believed that God had promised I would have children.  So when I didn’t get pregnant as an adult, I had difficulty understanding what He was doing.  But through it, I trusted He was in control.  After medical testing and intervention, I became pregnant with my son and then when he was five months old, I became pregnant with my daughter.  Although certainly not easy, my faith in God grew.  He used it to bring glory to Himself and prepare me to help other women experiencing a similar struggle.
