"I will sing of Your mercy that leads me through valleys of sorrow to rivers of joy. . "
I heard this song for the first time today on Pandora.com. I have not lost anyone recently, but over the last 7 years, I have lost quite a few loved ones. But that's not why this song hit me today. There is pain and grief associated with job loss and the journey to employment. I don't talk about it a lot because I would rather focus on the work that God is doing in us and His faithfulness. The truth is, though, that it is extremely difficult at times, and Tim and I have to make a conscience effort to rely on God's grace to continue moving forward to get through this time. We have to purposefully praise Him and "sing of His mercy."
