As I think about this hymn, I am reminded that God does use pain and heartache to conform us to the image of His Son Jesus Christ. He keeps us going even when it seems like the going is impossible. Days and nights sometimes seem to stretch into an interminable line of agony while we falter, get hurt, or sometimes lose our way. This has been a huge encouragement to me in times of deep sorrow and agony. I pray it will be an encouragement to you, as well.
