thank God for trouble

Thank God for trouble for without you could not see
How triumph over adversity will give you the victory

How can you appreciate the good if you never had the bad?
How can you feel joy if you've never been sad?
You can be high or low, you can go far and wide
And trouble will always find a way to be by your side

Thank God for trouble, the struggles and the strife
Thank God for trouble and His Son Jesus the Christ
Now the early church was looked at with a jaundiced eye by those in power
The people of faith were killed and tortured at any given hour
There was frenzied persecution and false prosecution in those troubling days
And it seems that that state of mind is still here today

Thank God for trouble and thank Him for Jesus the Christ
As He dealt with our troubles by giving His life
We now know that trouble leads to perseverance and hope
And by Jesus' stripes we now know how to cope
That yield point in life that we strive to attain
Not to be broken but to rebound with the ability to sustain

Thank God for trouble for without it we would never discover 
That unconditional faith in God gives us the ability to recover
Now full of character and pregnant with possibilities
We may fall down but we get up striving towards our God-given destinies
And because we have God on the inside that Holy Spirit which dwells within
We are more than conquerors we're God fearing women and men
Thank God for trouble for without it we'd never be able to see
How the Lord God is working for you and for me

Thank God for trouble

    I love every line. Such a blessing. "Thank God for trouble for without it we'd never be able to see How the Lord God is working for you and for me"
