Before you get to the top, there's a journey through the valley. If you feel defeated through the valley, know that it is temporary. You have to go through it to get to it!
"Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." - Psalm 23:4
