God never wastes a hurt. Often, the seasons we think are there to destroy us are really just there to refine us. We are being made into the likeness of Christ. Jesus had to endure temptation after temptation to properly prepare Him for His destiny and, sometimes, you and I will have to do the same.
The important thing to remember is that when we’re walking through the valley, we’re never really alone. God walks beside us every step of the way. He never leaves us. He never forgets about us. He’s with us to the very end. And we always leave the valley stronger and more resilient than we’d been going in.
Really, that’s what the valley is there for.
