Through It All

I’ve had many tears and sorrows
I’ve had questions for tomorrow
There’s been times I didn’t know right from wrong
But in every situation
God gave me blessed consolation
That my trials come to only make me strong

I heard this Andrae Crouch song for the first time a week ago. It resonated with me then; it’s stayed with me through the week.

Life’s always been busy for me. Work, family, church… As a young man it seemed to be straightforward. Life was good… my faith was strong enough to see me through… learning the answers to life’s questions… I was naïve!

I’ve been to a lot of places
And I’ve seen millions of faces
But there were times that I felt so all alone
But in my lonely hours
Yes, those precious lonely hours
Jesus let me know that I was his own

As I’ve got older there have been difficulties, insecurities… Good friends have faced situations that my younger self couldn’t dream or imagine… I’ve looked for friends and found loneliness… I’ve looked for success and security and found fear and failure…I’ve had more questions than answers…

My experience… Andrae Crouch’s experience… through it all… I’ve learned to trust my God more…

So I thank God for the mountains
And I thank him for the valleys
And I thank him for the storms he brought me through
For if I’d never had a problem
I’d never know that God could solve them
I’d never know what faith in his word could do

I thank God for good things… I thank God for tough times that He’s brought me through with a stronger faith. I trust God with my current problems – because I’ve see that He’s trustworthy… I look forward to an uncertain future… Sometimes there’s anxiety…

I’ve learnt to trust…? I’m still learning.  

Through it all
Through it all
I’ve learned to trust in Jesus
I’ve learned to trust in God

Through it all
Through it all
I’ve learned to depend upon his word
