9-11-14 Through the Valley

valley george inness

The valley of the shadow of my death

Is filled with hidden demons clawed with doubt.

Though evil may dissuade with ev’ry breath,

I have no fear: my Shepherd’s here throughout.

My soul draws nigh toward this journey’s end

And I stand facing my eternity,

But when I die my spirit will ascend:

My Shepherd’s face is all that I can see.

He holds the rod of strength, His Holy Word;

His staff is victory beyond the grave;

When I pass on, this body is interred,

Yet there’s no sting; my spirit He did save.

Though I must walk into the valley floor,

My Shepherd guides me through an open door.


Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;

thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalm 23:4 KJV

  1. Absent from the body and present with The LORD! HallELuJAH!
    I have a feeling that you have MUCH work to do, Jay!
    Start focusing on what you can do for HIM while here.
    Praising HIM is authority. Psalm 108:8.
    HE loves you
    and I do tooooooooo!
    The people around you may have a strange unacceptable way
    of showing their love for you
    but I am soooooo very assured that you are LOVED!

    Oh, wow. I didn’t realize you had poems hidden behind your pictures.
    Nice write! Appropriate words and thoughts on a day like this day.

    Peace and luvz, Uncle Tree
