Known in Our Suffering

But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So death is at work in us, but life in you.

Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence. For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

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 transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:7-18)

The past couple of years, more than ever before I have found myself in a position of thinking, “I just don’t even know the words to say.” When someone loses a daughter, a baby, a husband with small children and one on the way, a son during a car accident, a college freshman so unexpectedly, has miscarriage after miscarriage…the pain, I’m sure, is un-explainable. I have watched people remain faithful during what is most likely some of the deepest pain of their life. I have seen people stand in their faith saying, “God, I don’t understand, but I know you are good.”

As I walked one of the darkest roads of my own life, I played this song in the background day after day…week after week…for months. Reminding me that God KNOWS us in our suffering and His strength is made perfect in our weakness. Your faith impacts so many and is changing lives!https://www.youtube.com/embed/qyUPz6_TciY?version=3&rel=1&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&fs=1&hl=en-US&autohide=2&wmode=transparentI 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 sufferingThough 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 needMy 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 allThough 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 worshipSing a song to the one who’s all I needThough 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 meThough 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
