Psalm 23:4, Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for you are with me; your rod and your staff—they comfort me.
We read about discipline in this verse; loving disciple. It is good. This verse speaks to me. I go through dark valleys. I create some, and some are out of my control, but I must not be afraid, for God is with me. He disciplines my sin and lovingly leads me home every single time. I'm so thankful to have such a loving Father.
We get weathered and worn in this world, but through his rod and staff, there is new growth.
