Song: “God Walks the Dark Hills”
by Iris Dement

God walks the dark hills
The ways, the by ways
He walks through the billows
Of life’s troubled sea
He walks through the cold dark night
The shadows of midnight
God walks the dark hills
Just to guide you and me


God walks the dark hills
To guide my footsteps
He walks everywhere
By night and by day
He walks in the silence
On down the highway
God walks the dark hills
To show me the way

God walks in the storm
The rain and the sunshine
He walks on the billows
On through glimmering light
Helps us walk up the mountain so high
Cross our rivers through valleys
God walks the dark hills
‘Cause He loves you and me.


VERSE:  John 8:12, “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:  he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

All of us face trouble and heartaches in our lives; daily we have burdens to bear.  Thank God the child of God does not face their troubles or bear their burdens alone.  In your darkest hour and in your worst of times, God is there shining His light, giving His grace, bestowing His mercy, and showing you the way.  He is the Way and He continually gives Himself to us if we but only receive Him.  Once we are saved, we are given the Holy Spirit to reside in us and Jesus never leaves us nor forsakes us.  In darkness and in light, Jesus shows us the way.  In His footsteps there is life and life more abundantly.   Choose Jesus today.  Allow Him to lead you and watch your sadness turn to gladness!  He is in your midst.  Call on Him!  Remember, Jesus loves you.  You are loved.

Prayer:  Lord, I come humbly to You asking You to shine Your light in my life.  Turn my eyes to You.  Help me to focus on the goodness of You that surrounds me.  Help me to give to You those things I hold so tightly to myself.  Use me and mold me.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
