TSMSS ~ God on the Mountain

It's Then Sings My Soul Saturday when I get to link up with Amy of Signs, Miracles and Wonders.

I love those mountaintop experiences.  Have you ever had them?  You know, those times when life is going along smoothly and it's so ...easy to praise God.

But what happens when you're in a valley?  God never promised that this life would be easy.  In fact, 1 Peter 4 tells us to expect trials.

  • What is your response when you find yourself in a season of trials and challenges? 
  • Do you continue to praise God? 
  • Or do you complain that life is so hard? 
  • Where is God?
The song I chose for this week is called "God on the Mountain" and Linda Randle sings it so beautifully. 

God is the God on the mountain.  But God is also God in the valley. 

I believe my faith is being stretched.  It continues to grow in the valleys of my life as I learn to cling to Him alone.

Do you make the choice to praise God regardless of your circumstances?

Blessings and love,

TSMSS ~ God on the MountainSocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

"The God of the day is still God in the night."
What beautiful lyrics and such a beautiful singer.

You are definitely one of those godly women that I've seen praise God consistently, regardless of what is going on in your life. Thanks for being an inspiration, Debbie!

Great song! =) She is an awesome singer - and I loved the harmonica that accompanied the song =) So beautiful. Love the message! God makes the wrong things right - He is the God of the good and the bad times. He is the same God day and night.

I love the cartoon =) Very cute with a profound message!

Hope you have a blessed Saturday!

I have to confess that it's harder for me to be full of praise when life has valleys. The mountains are easy, valley's not so much. It's something I'm working on and it seems the older I get the more I understand the valleys, try not to get shook, and let my thankfulness for my life still shine.

SnoopyGirl said...

The valleys are a great time to rehearse to goodness of God in our lives like King David did as he lay upon his bed. I find if I do this, I am comforted and find hope. Thanks for sharing!

Mocha with Linda said...

What wonderful lyrics - God doesn't change even though our circumstances do!

Michelle said...

Thank you.
We are in the valley at our house.
I needed to hear this song.

Lynns Lovelies said...

Oh Debbie, such a strong message of comfort, knowing He never changes and is always there.
Love this song and what a beautiful voice!
Clinging to Him alone and being thankful for every blessing that comes to us is what I am experiencing also..and I am thankful for it and do praise Him for the good times ahead, though it is difficult, He is there.

Hugs and Blessings,

So glad to see that you are continuing to "praise God in the valley" - because by doing that you are honoring Him and assuring that when the next mountaintop experience comes your way - it will be all the sweeter.
God bless you - Marsha Young

Hazel said...

Pia said...

Lea said...

How perfect for me to hear this awesome song this morning. You blog is always a blessing to me. Thanks for being so sensitive to the spirits leading in your life. Blessings to you!

Sandy said...

Beautiful song, Debbie. Thanks
for sharing it. We've been in a
deep valley for a long while
here at our home. However, He
is always worthy of our praise
regardless of our circumstances.
He is growing us, stretching us,
making us into the image of His
Dear Son.
Hope you and your family have a
wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sydney said...

I have not always responded to trials patiently waiting on the Lord. I would get anxious and wonder why I was going through whatever was happening at the time. I would murmur and I know I was grieving Holy Spirit.

I have since learned my lesson and now I respond much differently in Jesus' name. I thank Him because He has promised to never leave me or forsake me!

Sonja said...

The God on the mountain is still God in the valley!! That's the bottom line that we all need to know. Loved this song Debbie... it's where we seem to spend the most time in life... I love the mountain tops, but the valley is where I learn to know Him the best.


Saleslady371 said...

This cartoon is hilarious, Debbie! I'm praising Him too, whether valley or mountain top. Who else can rescue me? Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

Sassy Granny ... said...

I have long loved this song. It's one of those that brings a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye, knowing how faithful God has been to me on the mountains, and in the valleys.

Bless you, girl!


Cathy said...

Thanks for that great song of hope, Dear. Praying for you ~ Love and Hugs ~

Just Be Real said...

Great song of choice and message Debbie. Appreciate it so much. Blessings.

Debra Kaye said...

Oh my sweet friend, I had trouble getting it to play here so went to YouTube. I so needed to hear this! Thank you for sharing it!

Big hugs to you!!

Joan Davis said...

But being human, I can sometimes slip into a slump - confused and feeling alone in my circumstances. But you are so right! We need to praise God regardless of what is happening in our life...for we are never alone! God will bring clarity in our confusion, calm in our chaos, and comfort in all our trials. He cares for each of us and will carry us through the deepest valleys, for even there, so is God.

Blessings to you, Debbie!

Love, Joan

Deb said...

Hi Debbie, glad I stopped by. this is what my Pastor preached on today. Yes we need to praise Him in the valleys. Great Blog:)

Anita Johnson said...

God is the God on the mountain. But God is also God in the valley.
I love this! And what a great song, another new one for me!

jhunnelle said...

"goosebump" that was i felt while listening to the music, what a wonderful message and music. I just love listening to it. Thank you for sharing.


Crown of Beauty said...

Oh Debbie this is just another post to confirm the lessons that GOd has been teaching me these past days. I loved the words you wrote, and now this song. I have never heard it before.

Thanks for sharing you heart once again.
