One of My Fav Songs

Go watch this video (because I have no idea how to properly link it)! This lady has a beautiful voice. If her recording was on good equipment I would have to add it to my page for a while. It is crackly, but her talent is awesome!!


Life Is Hard (God Is Good) -- by Pam Thum

You turn the key
Then close the door behind you
Drop your bags on the floor
You reach for the light
But there's darkness deep inside
And you can't take it anymore
'Cause sometimes living takes the life out of you
And sometimes living is all you can do
Life is hard, the world is cold
We're barely young and then we're old
But every falling tear is always understood
Yes, life is hard, but God is good
You start to cry
'Cause you've been strong for so long
And that's not how you feel
You try to pray
But there's nothing left to say
So you just quietly kneel
In the silence of all that you face
God will give you His mercy and grace
Jesus never said
It was an easy road to travel
He only said that you would never be alone
So when your last thread of hope
Begins to come unraveled
Don't give up, He walks beside you
On this journey home and He knows
Life is hard, the world is cold
We're barely young and then we're old
But every falling tear is always understood
Yes, life is hard, but God is good


  1. I remember when this song came out...It was like someone could read my heart like an open book...I thank GOD for lyrics like these that reach deep down into the hidden places of our heart that we don't want anyone else to know about. Just knowing that we have a creator that sees our hearts...he knows the intent of our hearts, he knows what our hearts need to heal, he never falls short...he NEVER disappoints...he ALWAYS comes through...he always gives us just what we need. He is AWESOME. GOD is WAY MORE THAN GOOD...;o) Maybe I should write a song...God is WAY MORE THAN GOOD???lol! You know what I mean.?.?. Thanks for posting the lyrics to this song...I don't get to listen to the radio too much...the kids are always doing their thing...but I know I will be singing this song today ;o)(by the way, I remember when this song became so important to you too)

  2. Of course, you should write a song!! I have had some song moments, but I never write them down.

    I have to admit.. I don't remember, but we were going to Genesis at the time (and only dating & new Christians) and there was a lady there that would sing it. I just think the song speak volumes for so many that do not admit the defeated feeling we feel sometimes.
