Today I want to tell you about the tenth piece of music in my series called Music to Touch Our Hearts. In this series I’ve listed a number of pieces of music which always pull at my heart-strings, and today’s piece of music is a song entitled Through It All.

As I’ve mentioned in various blog posts before, over the last few years I’ve had some fairly major health issues which at times have caused me to question whether I could face another day, as it seemed at times as if all my friends, including God, had deserted me. However as you may have read in this last week, it was during those times that God sent me an angel in the form of a person who was to become the greatest source of support and encouragement I could ever have wanted or needed during that time.

It took a number of years of feeling as though things would never get better, before I finally began to realise I had started to get through the dark times back into the light, and it was all because of God!

Despite me feeling as though God had deserted me in my time of greatest need, I realised I couldn’t have been more wrong, because it was during this time that God was in fact the one person who stood by me.

During these dark times, I had come across the song Through It All, however, at that time, the words of this song couldn’t have been more alien to me. It was only once I came to accept and acknowledge that it was God who had got me through those days, that I came to the realisation that the words of this song, could be more accurate for me:

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

Since those dark days, I’ve had many more times when everything in life seemed to be going against me, however the difference this time has simply been that I have never felt as though God had deserted me, as I did in the past. I can now confidently say that no matter what, Through It All I will continue to serve God.
