Through the Fire

Today I was shuffeling through my iTunes account because I thought it would be fun to answer this note I had seen posted on a friends facebook account (I will post the answers below). Well, while doing that I came across this song that I love but had not listended to in a long time.  As I sat listening to it over and over (yes, I kept repeating it!), I realized how true the words are.  And not only how true they are, but how there are believers out there that start to go through dark times and valley’s and wonder where God is and why He would allow this to happen to them.  Here is the song and two video versions of it from YouTube. Plus the little quiz that started it all.  


 

Through the Fire- Randy Travis

So many times I’ve questioned certain circumstances
Or things I could not understand
Many times in trials, weakness blurs my vision
And my frustrations get so out of hand
It’s then I am reminded I’ve never been forsaken
I’ve never had to stand the test alone
As I look at all the victories, the Spirit rises up in me
It’s through the fire my weakness is made strong

And He never promised the cross would not get heavy and the hill would not be hard to climb
He never offered victory without fighting but He said help would always come in time
Just remember when you’re standing in the valley of decision and the adversary says give in
Just hold on, our Lord will show up and He will take you through the fire again

I know within myself that I would surely perish
But if I trust the hand of God, He’ll shield the flames again

And He never promised the cross would not get heavy and the hill would not be hard to climb
Just hold on, our Lord will show up and He will take you through the fire again
Just hold on, our Lord will show up and He will take you through the fire again
