What a wonderful song...


I just recently started listening to this group called the Crabb family, I seen them on a Gaither show and just really enjoyed them. I especially liked this song as it came at just the right time. I had gotten a letter from Matthew and he was talking about how hard basic training is on him and he was starting to sound so discouraged. I seen the performance of this song and sat right down and wrote Matthew a letter with the lyrics to the song, especially the chorus part and reminded him that the Lord will never forsake him and that he is there through all circumstances.
The chorus part that I sent Matthew~

"He never promised that the cross would not get heavy, and the hill would not be hard to climb. He never offered our victories without fighting but He said help would always come in time.
Just remember when your standing in the valley of decision and the adversary says give in, just hold on our LORD will show up and take you through the fire again."

I hope everyone enjoys listening to this group, they have such energy and such a love for the Lord.

I sure would appreciate any prayers for my son right now, I am so proud of him but am now so worried about him. He is starting his 3rd week of basic training and still has 6 more to go :(



  1. I have been praying for Matthew. I got a similar letter to the one you shared with me in an e-mail from my son when he was in basic. I was so worried, but found out later, it was no big deal. He is homesick, for sure, and God has him right where he wants him....dependant on God alone. Keep your faith...Matthew is just fine!!

  2. Wow Joann, I could not have seen that at a better time. I'm sitting here in tears. Thank you and I will pray for Matthew.
