Though You Slay Me

Hoop in progress for my sweet Willa

We’ve had incredible time spent with brothers and sisters over the past few days as we prepare for our trip to St. Jude. Today, our brother Jono (who is no stranger to suffering) shared this with us:

…Every millisecond of your pain…..your misery….in the path of obedience is producing a peculiar glory you will get because of that. I don’t care if it was cancer or criticism. I don’t care if it was slander or sickness. It wasn’t meaningless.

IT’S DOING SOMETHING. IT’S NOT MEANINGLESS. Of course you can’t see what it’s doing.

Don’t look to what is seen…..It’s working for you an eternal weight of Glory. Therefore. Therefore do not lose heart!…..

John Piper
