In The Valley (Original Christian Worship Song)

In the Valley- Chrissy Kertscher

in the valley worship song

I have been going through an incredibly rough time recently. Everywhere I turn, Satan is trying to mess things up for me. Right now, I am in the deepest valley of my life. I have felt hopeless, lost, and like there is no way out. Every time I have been about to get out, I fall right back in it, flat on my face. A lot of times, people can get to a place where they doubt God, where they stop praising God, or start asking Him why He’s doing this.

Why I wrote It?

I wrote “In the Valley,” as my response to God as I face some of the hardest trials in my life. Our first reaction to hurt, pain, trials, and struggles should be praise. Just like Job did at the beginning. Even after losing everything, his response was worship. I know that God is helping me. He is fighting this battle for me.

A song that has been my go to song when I am on my knees before God, is a song called, “This is How I fight my Battles” by The Upper Room. I added this at the end of my song because it is so simple yet it means so much. It says, “It may look like I’m surrounded but I’m surrounded by you.” Those words alone overwhelm me.

I hope and pray that this song means as much to you as it did for me while I was writing it. I know, that even in the valley, God is before me and behind me. God placed me on the mountain… I worshiped Him. Then, I was placed in the valley… and I continued to worship Him.

Lyrics:

Verse 1

I’ve been walking for a really long time in the valley, You hear my cry.

It’s been painful but you see me here and You’re fighting all my fears.

Pre- Chorus

Even in this hurt, and when I can’t sing, I’ll praise you. I will Praise you.

Chorus

I’ve been on the mountain before. I worshiped You then and I will worship You now.

And now as I’m in the valley give me strength and test my faith.

I’ve been on the mountain before. I praised You then and I’m not going to stop, now.

And now as I’m in the valley, lift up my head to where I only see you. Be my joy when I don’t have hope.

Verse 2

As I go through this trial I’ll wait, wait upon You Lord.

As I fight this battle, You are helping me and I am down on my knees.

Bridge 1

I would have never chosen this for me You know what I need better than me

Bridge 2 (This is How I fight my battles/Surrounded- Upper Room)

This is how I fight my battles

This is how I fight my battles

It may look like I’m surrounded

But I’m surrounded by You

Ultimate Christian Workout Playlist

I’ve recently started working out again. I know, shocker. Hopefully I will not end up quitting like every time I try this. We all do it. I know I’m not the only one. So in honor of me getting back into the workout saddle (is that a thing?), I’ve decided to put together a Christian workout playlist. When I work out, I love to listen to ‘get pumped’ music. Most of the time when I am running, slow worship songs comes on and although they are great songs, it just doesn’t fit the whole ‘get pumped’ mood.
