A Message from the Valley of Decision…

I saw her standing in the Valley of Decision and I reached for her hand gently.
I said, “I don’t know where you are coming from but I do know what you are running from.”
She said she had forgotten her loveliness and her might. She has forgotten the taste of new wine and sweet olive oil. Her trees would bear no more fruit. All of her gifts and talents had drained away. The “invented” normal had left her heart and soul gravely bruised…
I have seen it many times in sixty years. The exigencies the “inventor of lies” has put upon us. The accuser, the impostor of beauty and wisdom says, “We girls have to be skinny, smart, beautiful, witty, sexy, as well as Mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, healer, cook, house keeper, and oh yes, we can never age, wrinkle, or grow soft muscles or gray hair…
Oh what a relief is found when we know these falsehoods cannot raze our joy! The Spring rain will wash you clean of shame and doubt and you will regain all you have lost! Young woman, daughter, widow, single Mother, or any Mother, any woman…Come to the Valley of Decision and lay down all the plates you are spinning. Hold with palms open upward any control you deem you have and you will realize that you are so far beyond what you believed. Choose Wisdom instead of control. Choose Wisdom which says, “You are the Pearl of Great Price!”
Stay in this Valley and decide to seek Wisdom… be healed, be whole, and dance before the Lord God without fear and then reach out your hand for the next woman you see and give her the Wisdom you have gained…it is a decision, it is truth or it is lies and you must choose…thousands upon thousands of women are waiting for your hand…

A bruised reed he will not break, and a fading candle he won’t snuff out. He’ll bring forth justice for the truth. Isaiah 42:3
Also, inspiration from Joel 3:14

  1. Thank you for sharing your heart! As I battle the “accuser” you remind me that I am more than this 51 year old body… it is a wonderful feeling to be ok with what I see in the mirror because my mind is focused more on Jesus than wrinkles, spots or flabby muscles. But that doesn’t always prevent the “accuser” to sneak a few “body slams” in now and again. Thank you for this post to help me overcome the assault.
    Love your writing and I feel blessed to have been shown you❤️🙏🏼❤️

  2. My dear friend. You are so gifted. Writing your heart is filling an exceptional need to those who need to hear the Truth in a beautiful and new way. You bring Glory to the One who is worthy. Thank you. And with your permission I would love to share on occasion. 😘😘
