"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."

THROUGH IT ALL

BY ANDRAE CROUCH

I've had many tears and sorrows,
I've had questions for tomorrow,
There have been times
I didn't know right from wrong.

But in every situation -
God gave blessed consolation,
That my trials come only to make me strong.

I thank God for the mountains,
I thank Him for the valleys
I thank Him for the storms
He brought me through.

For if I'd never had a problem
I wouldn't know that He could solve them,
I'd never know what faith in God can do.

Chorus:
Through it all -- through it all,
I've learned to trust in Jesus,
I've learned to trust in God.
Through it all -- through it all,
I've learned to depend upon His Word.
