I shared this song once before on my blog, but I thought it was worth sharing again.
This is not the album version this time though.
Even though life may seem tough and some people are facing very difficult situations, it's encouraging to me to know as a Christian that God will work all things together for the good of those that love Him. That doesn't mean escape from the trials. I'll admit that's often what I'd like. I know that God uses suffering to help me grow spiritually and become more like Christ.
Whether you or a loved one are facing trials or tragedies or persecution for the sake of Christ, I hope that this song will be an encouragement to all Christians out there.
"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28 NASB
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Just as it is written,
“FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG;
WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED.”
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:35-39 NASB
