Romans
5:1-5 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.


Through It All

Words and Music by Andrae Crouch

I've had many tears and sorrows,
I've had questions for tomorrow,

There've been times
I didn't know right from wrong:
But in every situation God gave blessed consolation
That my trials come
To only make me strong.

I've been to lots of places,
And I've seen a lot of faces,
There've been times I felt so all alone;
But in my lonely hours,
Yes, those precious lonely hours,

Jesus let me know that I was His own.


CHORUS
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.


I thank God for the mountains,
And I thank Him for the valleys,
I thank Him for the storms
He brought me through;
For if I'd never had a problem
I wouldn't know
That He could solve them,
I'd never know what faith
In God could do.

CHORUS
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.

I love that song...in fact, it was a favorite of my grandmother's!
I confess, after learning that tribulation was what worked patience, I quit praying for patience ;) But, God, in His infinite wisdom doesn't always work according to our lack of specific prayer....and although, I'm not quite spiritually mature enough to be glad for trials, I am so very thankful for the lessons He teaches through trials.
