Reading the book Love Lives Here by Maria Goff. Love this quote about hard times in our lives. “What I think God does is to allow each of us to go through difficult times to show us His presence through it. It’s as if He reminds each of us in our most difficult circumstances that the most beautiful waterfalls only happen in the steepest places in our lives.” This got me to thinking about my wanting to see waterfalls this summer after experiencing majestic ones at Yosemite. Could it be that they remind me that difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations? It takes time and effort to see waterfalls. After years of heartache and pain I am now in a season of beauty and happiness I never knew existed. I never put the correlation together but it makes me think deep about life. I thank God for the waterfalls in my life.
