And though I walk through the valley of death I know that I will feel no evil because my God is with me.

What is the valley except another part of God's creation. And though I walk and have walked through valleys in my past I found only peace at the end of it, and no evil there except that which was imagined in my own heart. God was always there, and He continues to be there.

When you have already been through the valley of decision - a place where you decide to make heaven your home, this valley of the shadow of death is just that--a shadow only that comes to find if your heart belongs to Him and to Him only with no reservations. There is a sifting in the valley that shakes all that you know, or all that you thought you knew, and leaves you with just one thing - the one thing that matters most your trust in Him to be all in all to you.

Short and to the point - and a great point at that! Maybe flesh this out, with a few real-life experiences thrown in for a bit more impact. Thanks for sharing!

I have to say also that your writing is good, but would be better if you said more or used some examples too!

This is very nice. I like how you called the valley just another part of God's creation. You asked for a critique, so here goes: This needs to be longer. Maybe you could expound upon some of the points you make. Also, I think the first sentence of the 2nd paragraph needs a question mark at the end. You writing shows great promise. Keep up the great work - next time just give us more.
