Many people think that when they become Christians, all their problems will disappear--they certainly don't get that from the Bible! This song points out accurately that God says we will have difficult times, but that He will be there for us. When you're going through those hard times--what Rebecca calls the Shadowlands--sometimes all we have left is that divine promise. She reminds us that God will stay with us, walking together through the dark valley into the light. It's an amazing promise.
