Over the years, I have posted quite a few videos of songs by Shane and Shane. They are probably one of my favorite bands, as their words speak pointed truth. That is certainly true of this song, "Though You Slay Me." It is a song that resonates with words of trust that during the dark storm of life that God allows our way, He is still there wanting us to cling hold of Him.
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.
In this video of the song, you will hear pastor John Piper gives some words of encouragement for your trial. He says that whatever you are going through is not meaningless suffering. God is working. I really appreciate his words, "don't look to what is seen..." Certainly it is so easy to look to that which is seen for the answers, but what we need to do during that rough season is to look beyond the seen. Look to the unseen for our answers and hold onto Him during that time.
Listen to this song, it is powerful.
