"I know the way ahead of you looks difficult.
I know it is shrouded in darkness so that you cannot see it clearly.
I know it seems dangerous to you, and you are afraid,
even if you don't want to admit it to yourself.
"But I want you to know that I am with you here!
I will not tell you to pretend that the valley doesn't exist
or that it's full of sunshine,
and I am not disappointed in you if you are afraid.
"I want you to see the dark valley clearly,
because you and I are going to walk through it together.
It will feel like death to you,
but I will bring you to resurrection."
