Series: Psalm 23
Life is a mixture of pain and pleasure, of victory and defeat, of success and failure, of mountain tops and valleys.
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
How do I handle the dark valleys of life?

“…I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…Your rod and staff, they comfort me…”
Believers and non- believers go through the same valleys of life, The difference for the Christian is not the absence of the shadow but the presence of the Shepherd. God is with you!
