This hymn by George Matheson has long been a favourite of mine, particularly this verse. In times of trial and distress when all we can do is cry and ask why this reminds me there is hope. We would never see the beautiful arc of the rainbow unless we first experienced the rain. We would never be able to show compassion to others unless we’d first known pain.
When life doesn’t make sense, hold on, even if you’ve got to the end of the rope and no one realises your pain behind your smile, God knows and He truly cares.
