This song really, really says it.
Sometimes, faith means getting past the whining, getting past begging for explanations, when the bad stuff happens to you. Why shouldn't it? Isn't it sort of arrogant to see it happen to others, and then be shaken when the crap of a fallen world splatters onto you, too?
He never promised things wouldn't ever be uncomfortable, awful, painful, unfair.
He promised to get us through it. He promised to be with us in it. He promised to bring something good out of it.
And believe me, he is faithful to keep those promises, if we will only trust him.
After all, he beat death. Everything else is just a matter of time...
