Read this Psalm. Slowly. Then follow this link, read it... and tell me, if you aren't soul-nourished.

"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
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.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever." -Psalm 23-

His promise isn't for the valley to be our lot one day, and the next a day of goodness and mercy. The text says "... surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all they days of my life"

If today finds you in a valley, remember, there is goodness and mercy, even (especially?) in the valleys.

...He ever walks with us--what more could we want?...
