That song was a perfect prelude to my parent's testimony about their own trials and pursuit of Jesus. At the time I sang this sweet song, I had not yet walked through any great trials – I was a child. But the words of that song became buried deep in my heart where they would help prepare me for my own journey. These words are echoed from Romans 3: 3-5: "Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us."
