valley of vision

"The Valley of Vision"
Let me find thy light in my darkness,
thy life in my death,
thy joy in my sorrow,
thy grace in my sin,
thy riches in my poverty
thy glory in my valley.

--Excerpt from The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions, edited by Arthur Bennett

What an amazing God we serve! I can think of specific first-hand experiences relating to some of the above ideas and am thankful for someone else saying this truth so eloquently. It is good to reflect on the Lord's goodness.
