The Darkest Valley

The Moravian text for today is so appropriate as we remember what happened five years ago today. I’m not sure if it was planned or just one of those holy “coincidences” that the verses mentioned discussed walking through the darkest valley and being afflicted in every way.

Personally, I am not feeling as thought I am in a valley today. But seeing a few things on television and remembering the profound tragedy of 9/11 makes the Scripture seem all the more appropriate.

The other day I was reading an article in Good Housekeeping about the Twin Towers and the author mentioned a friend named Claudia, whose husband Bart worked in the building. For some reason, this unusual fact made me identify even more with those affected by the events of that day.

My prayer today is for the survivors and the families of the victims of the tragedy, that they will experience the truth of those passages
