Last night we had a quartet practice gearing up for a couple of events we where we are doing an hour long concert. One of the songs is “Through It All”. We have done this song many times in years past but haven’t sung it for 4 or 5 years. I happened to be signing it while I was mowing my lawn this past Monday. The words thank Jesus/God for the trust we can have in them, the hope we have, thanking them for the problems of life in order to build this trust. In part they say: “Through it all I’ve learned to trust in Jesus, I’ve learned to trust in God…” As I was singing this while mowing I was overcome with thanksgiving. I hadn’t realize just how much I have learned to trust in Jesus until these past several months of counseling. I so often hear of one’s disbelief that Jesus truly cares for them or why would all of this be happening to them? I relate so well to this question for it was my own for so many years of my life.

The ordeals of life are overwhelming sometimes, but God’s faithfulness to His Promises are even more overwhelming if we will continue to stay with Him. He will kindly and patiently help us find Him in these awful circumstances and allow us to replace our questions of doubt with confidence in thanksgiving. I am a living testament of this and I am so very grateful!
