Though You Slay Me

A song that I have enjoyed listening to this year is "Though You Slay Me" by Shane & Shane. It is a song that tells of suffering, joy, hope, and praise, all mixed together. Today I would like to share the music video of the song with you. (If you are reading in an email, please click over to my blog to view the video).

Within the video there is clip from a conference message by John Piper. You can hear the entire message here: The Glory of God in the Sight of EternityIn this message, John Piper teaches on 2 Corinthians 4:16-18, and he shares the secret for not losing heart. The message is encouraging, challenging, and full of good teaching.




Though You Slay Me 
I come, God, I come
I return to the Lord
The one who's broken
The one who's torn me apart
You struck 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 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
Sing a song to the One who's all I need

I guess that is why they call it good news.

Thanks so much... Ministering to disabled people is so wonderful... Ministering to the bad days helps so much

Hi Corrine! It's so good to hear from you. I want to let you know that I haven't forgotten your question about how I respond to those who say I would be healed if I just had enough faith. I've been reading, studying, and taking a few notes in preparation for a blog post or two. Hopefully by November I can get something more posted.


I love what John Piper says in the music video above about any suffering that a Christian goes through is "totally meaningful." I do believe that God has a plan and a purpose in suffering. Yes, He can heal. He is God! He can do anything! And sometimes He does heal. But often He lets Christians suffer through sickness because He has a bigger plan than what we can see. There is purpose in suffering.
