All of us will experience some degree of sorrow as we navigate through this fallen world, a world filled with sickness and death and the repercussions of relational sin when those most close to us hurt us by their words and deeds. How should Christians think about sorrow and the trials that are often its delivery mechanism? This song attempts to bring Biblical truth to bear on our bouts with pain and depression. If God had left us to what feel or think – to figure out His purpose in our trials by ourselves – we would surely be hopeless. But He has not left us alone; we can rest on what He has told us in His word. God tells us in Isaiah 45:6-8 that He is “the LORD, and there is no other, the One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity.” God is the wise author of all of our circumstances, even our pain. That is a very difficult truth to accept, but through the gospel of God’s grace we have these additional promises: “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) and “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 8:38-39) This song is a cry for the Lord to help us believe this truth for when trials and sorrows come we would be hopeless without it.
