Are you going through a hard time? Maybe these words from a song sung by Kristine Wyrtzen will help you like they helped me. The song is called "The Fire."

I've been through a fire that had deepened my desire, to know the living God more and more.
It hasn't been much fun, but the work that is has done in my life has been worth the hurt.
You see sometimes we need the hard times to bring us to our knees, otherwise we do as we please and never heed him.
For he always knows what's best and it's when we are distressed that we really come to know God as he is.
