Though You Slay Me

Hey friends. I've been listening to this song by Shane & Shane a lot lately. It's not new, but new to me. I found it about a week before our trip and have been listening to it on repeat the past few days. The lyrics are so good and the song is just beautiful. You all know how much I love a good song so I just had to share. Meditate on these lyrics a minute:

I come, God, I come
Return to the Lord
The one who's broken
The one who's torn me apart
You strike down to bind me up
You say you do it all in love
That I might know You in Your suffering

Though You slay me
Yet I will praise You
Though you take from me
I will bless Your name
Though You ruin me
Still I will worship
Sing a song to the One who's all I need

My heart and flesh may fail
The earth below give way
But with my eyes, with my eyes I'll see the Lord
Lifted high on that day
Behold, the Lamb that was slain
And I'll know every tear was worth it all

Though You slay me
Yet I will praise You
Though you take from me
I will bless Your name
Though You ruin me
Still I will worship
Sing a song to the One who's all I need

Though tonight I'm crying out
Let this cup pass from me now
You're still all that I need
You're enough for me
You're enough for me

Though you take from me
I will bless Your name
Though You ruin me
Still I will worship
Sing a song to the One who's all I need

Here it is on YouTube with an excerpt from a sermon by John Piper. Friends, be encouraged! Your suffering is not for naught. And if you're in need of a good cry, this song is just what you need.

SO much love to you all today,
