Through It All

Life can be very tough at times. Sometimes it can feel like there is no point in going on, as the world can sometimes seem a very dark and lonely place when you’re going through a difficult time in your life.

But no matter what your circumstances, and how low you may be feeling, God will never leave you. There are many references in the bible to God supporting us through all our troubles, but I’ve chosen the following two verses from Psalms to share with you today:

Psalm 37:24 (New Living Translation)
Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.

Psalm 66:9 (New Living Translation)
Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.

As I think I’ve mentioned before, I play in Bellshill Salvation Army Band, and a couple of months ago, we recorded our 4th CD (which is due to be launch in September this year) which is called Diversity. At our recent engagements/concerts we’ve featured a number of the pieces that will be featured on the new CD, one of which is the flugel horn solo “Through It All” which was specially written for our flugel horn player Lynn Shanks, by Andrew Blyth. It features the melodies of the song “Through It All” and “Shenandoah”.

For me this song “Through It All” has special meaning as it reflects my experiences and struggles over the last few years when ill health has been a major factor in my life.

I include the words of this song for you to read – I’d encourage you to find a recording of this track as the music enhances the beautiful words of the song. recording I am aware of are as follows:-

N.B All above artists can be found at the SP&S Online Store.

Through It All
Though the future seems uncertain
Though the fear erodes my peace
Though the circumstance seems hopeless
And the doubting will not cease
I will claim what He has promised
For my heart must recognise
Mine is not to question
But keep focused on the prize.

Through it all I choose to serve the saviour
Through it all I claim Christ as my friend
Through it all my faith will never waver
Till He calls me home or comes again

This path now set before me
Is not my route of choice
Yet I must keep moving forward
Listening to His still small voice
This step along this journey
He reminds me I’m His own
And through the cold dark loneliness
I’m aware I’m not alone

Through it all I choose to serve the saviour
Through it all I claim Christ as my friend
Through it all my faith will never waver
Till He calls me home or comes again
