Music does things to us.
It makes us get up and dance. Puts a smile on our face. Or brings us to tears. There is power in music. Sometimes it’s just the acoustic and other times, more than not, it’s the lyrics. I’m a strong believer that music touches a special place in us that only it can reach.

Over the years as I’ve walked through some hard times and music has played a special role in healing those areas that are broken. And I truly believe that God brought those songs into my life at that specific time to speak to me. Even to this day, when I hear a certain song I can remember what I was going through at that moment in time.

Recently I’ve been listening to one song on repeat. I’ve heard it before. However, last week I heard it at a funeral and while I was sitting in the pew, broken hearted for my friend, I listened to the words and they brought me to tears.

The name of the song is “hills and valleys” by Tauren Wells and guys, it’s impactful. I highly recommend you listen to it!

In the meantime, I wanted to write out a few of the lyrics that I find to be most powerful.

I’ve walked among the shadows
You wiped my tears away
I’ve felt the pain of heartbreak
And I’ve seen the brighter days
I’ve prayed prayers to heaven from my lowest place
And I have held the blessings
God, you give and take away
No matter what I have, Your grace is enough
No matter where I am, I’m standing in Your love
On the mountains, I will bow my life
To the one who set me there
In the valley, I will lift my eyes to the one who sees me there
When I’m standing on the mountain aft, didn’t get there on my own
When I’m walking through the valley end, no I am not alone!
You’re God of the hills and valleys!
Hills and Valleys!
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone!

Father, you give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all you will remain
Over it all!

Father, you give and take away
Every joy and every pain
Through it all you will remain
Over it all!

You’re God of the hills and valleys!
Hills and Valleys!
God of the hills and valleys
And I am not alone!

Ok, that may be most of the song… haha but honestly how powerful are those words.

“God of the hills and valleys and I am not alone.”

Yes and amen to that. Just over a year ago we were in a our valley. I can look back now and see how God was there with us the entire time. I remember key moments when I was on my knees in tears and I felt God’s presence. God is there in the valley … just like he is there on the hills. He’s such a good God.

I hope this encourages you today, whether you’re in your valley or on your hill. He is still the same where ever you are. You are not forgotten.. nor are you alone!

Ok. I’m done feeding your souls. How about we do a little feeding the belly.

Guys. Do you realize this is my FIRST Instant Pot recipe on JHE. GAHHHH!!! I never thought the day would come. Clearly I’m way behind on the Instant Pot train. Better late than never though, right!?

This Instant Pot Mongolian Beef has all the flavors you love from a normal Mongolian beef recipe but with a few tweaks. I used tamari sauce instead of soy sauce to make this recipe gluten free (you could also use coconut aminos if you have that). Instead of brown sugar, which is what you would use in the sauce I sweetened it with honey and then I used arrowroot as a thickener.

The trick to this Instant Pot Mongolian Beef is adding the “thickener” at the end of the pressure cooking part. If you add the thickener in before the sauce will come out too thick. I added in some veggies for good measure at the same time I added the thickener so as to keep the vegetables fresh and vibrant. I can’t wait to hear what you think!

Bon Appetit friends and happy pressure cooking!
