Through

Definition: in at one end, side, or surface and out at the other.

I make good use of my snooze alarm.  Love hitting it over and over, peeping out from the covers with one eye open to see how many more times I can do that before I need to open both eyes and actually get myself out of bed.

The problem is, I have the clock radio set to play music instead of an alarm, and sometimes a song comes on that is so good, I have to wrestle with myself over whether or not I’ll whack that “snooze” button, or let the song play.  This morning was one of those mornings. 

I let it play.

I hadn’t heard this song in years, but God knew I needed it today.  My family has been going “through” a crisis with my Dad being in the hospital with serious post-surgery complications.  As I laid there in bed in the early hours of this morning and listened to these lyrics, I thought about going “through” something.  “Going through” implies that you’re going to come out on the other side.

Looking forward to the other side, but so thankful for the God walking through it with us now.

Through It All  (by Andrae Crouch)

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 God could solve them,
I’d never know what faith in God could do.

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.

 

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.            Psalm 23:4

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?  Psalm 27:1

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; Psalm 138:7

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.              Isaiah 41:10
