This song has always been special to me although not necessarily this particular version. There were old people that sang it at my grandparents’ church when I was growing up. It was always an encouragement to me to see people who had been through some real trials and done some great things for the Lord, singing this from the heart. It built faith in me that no matter what we go through, God is faithful and trustworthy even when we have hard times. Difficulties are necessary for our growth; otherwise, God wouldn’t allow them in our lives.
