The following lyrics come from In the Valley, written by Bob Kauflin:

When You lead me to the valley of vision
I can see You in the heights
And though my humbling wouldn’t be my decision
It’s here Your glory shines so bright
So let me learn that the cross precedes the crown
To be low is to be high
That the valley’s where You make me more like Christ

Let me find Your grace in the valley
Let me find Your life in my death
Let me find Your joy in my sorrow
Your wealth in my need
That You’re near with every breath
In the valley

In the daytime there are stars in the heavens
But they only shine at night
And the deeper that I go into darkness
The more I see their radiant light
So let me learn that my losses are my gain
To be broken is to heal
That the valley’s where Your power is revealed

I've had several conversations in the past several days that have made me more aware of how easily man is exposed in weakness and pain. I don't like pain; it's not something I crave. At the same time, I don't necessarily like exposing my pain, especially when it feels shameful to me.

Yet, there's a greater glory in all of this, isn't there?
