A Song for the Suffering

March 8, 2016

This beautiful song by Shane and Shane features a sermon excerpt by John Piper. I’m moved to tears every time I listen.

“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”

Faith + Hope = Trust

“Faith arises from the personal experience of Jesus as Lord.  Hope is reliance on the promise of Jesus, accompanied by the expectation of fulfillment.  Trust is the winsome wedding of faith and hope.”

My Shield

The LORD is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts;
so I am helped, and my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to him.”

– Psalm 28:7

He Knows

November 20, 2010

“It was all a part of His time of seasoning for me. I took my apprenticeship in living when I was thrown into that dungeon. The first day of the iron chains, and in the darkness of that place, I asked myself, “Has this happened to me without God’s knowledge or consent?’ And my heart resounded with, ‘No! He knows and consented.’ So, I reasoned, He must have a plan! But at that time I never had a dream, a sign; nor did I have any solid proof He was working…only a quiet confidence that He was!”

– Joyce Landorf Heatherley, Joseph, 1979

“So if you are suffering according to God’s will,
keep on doing what is right,
and trust yourself to the God who made you,
for he will never fail you.”
