Being a person who is unable to watch anything tense or scary, when alone at night I tend to flip to HGTV and watch a few shows. The ending is always good:

  • Perspective buyers always buy their dream home in thirty minutes. Seriously, it took us over a year when looking to buy a home.
  • Renovations are completed in sixty minutes. Again, our home renovations took about 3 months. Maybe 4.
  • Every roadblock has the easiest and quickest solutions. Ours were complicated and stressful. We thought we’d never get them resolved.
  • Whether a sale or a renovation, they are always under budget. Enough said on this one.

As I sat in the soft light of the TV, my thoughts began to stir.

We are becoming a people who want our lives to be changed
in the speediest of ways.

I read this quote last week:

“The best way out is always through.”
(Robert Frost)

Life is a journey, a process. Reality transformation shows are making us think our challenges should be resolved just as quickly as thirty minutes. Maybe sixty.

But the journey –
the real life process – takes time.

His time.

Passing through the valley of Baca they make it a spring; The early rain also covers it with blessings.They go from strength to strength, Every one of them appears before God in Zion.
(Psalm 84:6-7, NASB)

The valley of Baca was thought to be a valley of weeping. We can apply this to any difficult or painful circumstance in life. It’s the place where we feel hopeless, helpless, and without any relief.

There is such promise and hope to be found in this verses.


Join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE and let’s look at the promise and hope to be found in these verses.
