2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. (ESV)
Through All of It
Lyrics
There are days I’ve taken more than I can give
And there are choices that I made
That I wouldn’t make again
I’ve had my share of laughter
Of tears and troubled times
This is has been the story of my life
I have won
and I have lost
I got it right sometimes
But sometimes I did not
Life’s been a journey
I’ve seen joy, I’ve seen regret
Oh and You have been my God
Through all of it
You were there when it all came down on me
When I was blinded by my fear
And I struggled to believe
But in those unclear moments
You were the one keeping me strong
This is how my story’s always gone
I have won
and I have lost
I got it right sometimes
But sometimes I did not
Life’s been a journey
I’ve seen joy, I’ve seen regret
Oh and You have been my God
Through all of it
Through all of it
And this is who You are
More constant than the stars up in the sky
All these years of our lives, I
I look back and I see You
Right now I still do
And I’m always going to
I have won
and I have lost
I got it right sometimes
But sometimes I did not
Life’s been a journey
I’ve seen joy
I’ve seen regret
Oh and You have been my God
Through all of it
Oh and You have been my God
Through all of it
Oh and You have been my God
Through all of it

Lord of life, love, and light; I find it hard to evaluate and calculate all the struggles and sorrows of my life “joy” because I don’t connect them all with any real process of creating in me a more steady, sane, and spiritual faith.  Help me know this at the core of my true self in the deepest parts of my emotions.  Let me see my pain as child birth producing life in me and not as a useless exercise in torture and loss.  Help me reach maturity of faith and completeness of soul.  Let me lack nothing in becoming like YOU.  Help my hunger and thirst to become like YOU.
Great and good Messiah Jesus, teach me to follow YOU and take up my cross so that I may know YOU more deeply through my suffering.  Master and Friend,  help me now, for YOU know how weak I am.  Lord have mercy.
Our Father in heaven, hollowed be YOUR name, YOUR kingdom come and YOUR will be done on earth as in heaven.  Amen
