While playing music, Tauren Wells had this quote come to mind: “When you are on the mountaintops of life, learn to bow low. And when you are in the valleys of life, learn to stand tall.”
That’s where “Hills and Valleys” was born. Hearing him play this song will bring calm to your soul.
Tauren explains more behind the quote and the song in the video below.
He says, “A lot of times… when I get to the mountaintops of life – the great experiences of life, the successes of life – I can start to feel like, “Man… I did this…” But it’s really in those moment when we have to learn to bow low in high places, remembering that it’s God who set us there. And yet on the flip side, sometimes when I’m in the valleys of life, it’s like, “God, where are you? You left me here by myself.” And that’s not true, either. Because God sees us in the valleys and we’re not alone…
Remember this: No matter where we’re at, we’re standing in God’s grace. And that no matter what we have, grace is enough. He’s the God of the hills and the God of the valleys.”
