Sony’s Thoughts: God Will Make This Trial a Blessing

Back in 1989, the McKameys recorded a song called “God Will Make This Trial a Blessing.” The first verse was about a person who was going through a difficult trial and was trying to find a way out but there was no human way of escape. They knew, however, that no matter how difficult this trial that they faced, God would turn it into a blessing because of His love. The song builds from there and ends with that same person standing on the mountain and looking back at the trial. He could now see how God had led him and how God had never left him.

Many times through the years, I have been able to relate to the first verse of this song. I have faced trials that seemed they would never end but I had to trust that, one day, God would make that trial a blessing for me as well. I can honestly say that He always has. I haven’t always seen a tangible blessing through these eyes of flesh but I am so thankful for what God has done in me by helping me to lean on Him in ways that I wouldn’t have if not for these hard times. I am thankful that I can now unwaveringly say that, no matter what you’re going through, God hasn’t left you and He will turn this into a blessing in your life if you will let Him.

  1. Thanks for the words of encouragement. That song is arguably the best McKameys song…with the exception of “God on the Mountain.”

  2. Amen Sony!
