When Trials Come - Keith and Kristyn Getty

Hi Everyone!!!

Yet again, I must say how blessed I am to have the friends that the Lord has given me: people who are so quick to build me up in my faith and point me back to the Lord when I am feeling down or things don't go my way.Thank you all my friends!!! :D

Today, a friend sent me the link to this tune. While not really my kind of music (I am such an old-fashioned girl at heart, I love the old hymns and classical music: contemporary music often grinds on my ears!!!) I felt that the lyrics certianly were helpful at giving us a good perspective on suffering. Remember: God is faithful, and He WILL complete the work in us that He has begun, even if that means He calls us to endure suffering while in this life.

When Trials Come - Keith and Kristyn Getty

When trials come no longer fear
For in the pain our God draws near
To fire a faith worth more than gold
And there His faithfulness is told
And there His faithfulness is told

Within the night I know Your peace
The breath of God brings strength to me
And new each morning mercy flows
As treasures of the darkness grow
As treasures of the darkness grow

I turn to Wisdom not my own
For every battle You have known
My confidence will rest in You
Your love endures Your ways are good
Your love endures Your ways are good

When I am weary with the cost
I see the triumph of the cross
So in it's shadow I shall run
Till You complete the work begun
Till You complete the work begun

One day all things will be made new
I'll see the hope You called me to
And in your kingdom paved with gold
I'll praise your faithfulness of old
I'll praise your faithfulness of old

God bless and may your focus be on Christ this week, whatever hardships you may face! 

PS As an aside, I recently listened to two amazing sermons on Jonah which incorpared suffering and our response to it. If you have the time, I highly recommend you listen to them!

Jonah - Running into God
Jonah - Running from God
