I feel asleep last night with my face buried in the carpet crying out to God to heal my son. I woke up numerous times throughout the night, each time letting the pain of my heart drive me to prayer. I woke up feeling a little better than I did yesterday and stumbled upon this incredible song and video. It was just what I needed.
The song is called “Though You Slay Me,” and it includes a brief message by John Piper within the song. It’s only a little over 6 minutes and will be well with your time to listen. It’s based off my favorite Scriptures of all time, 2 Corinthians 4:16-18:
“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are temporary, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
I read your posting last night before bed and I couldn’t sleep well either. Prayed,prayed,prayed for Trey everytime I awoke. I will continue to pray for your family and Trey.
