Though You Slay Me...

by - August 24, 2020

"He's not a tame lion."

He's not the one who would hurt us

God will never give you more than you can handle

So why is it that so often

I lie in bed with tears streaming down my face?

Why do I hear His voice and wonder if it's a voice that loves me or not?

Why is it that I read His word and feel like I am a stranger

What is love? 

Does love come with pain?

And why, if God loves me, does he not stop it?

I don't know.

I don't know

I don't know...

My heart is broken

And sometimes

No so often

It feels like God doesn't care

and I am TIRED

And they ask me why I'm burnt out and I can just say

God is good but God is gone

Isn't he?

Is he here


Please tell me here's here

I open the Book and I whisper

"Though you slay me"

"Yet I will praise you"

And there's no answer, maybe not now

maybe never

I just

keep reminding myself

that he is worth it all

all the pain

all the grief

and even if I see no reward this side of eternity

when I wake up in Glory

when I see his face

though he slay me here

I will praise him then

  2. *Hugs* You'll get through this, He'll always get you through. <3

  3. "He is worth it all." AMEN! I've actually just recently been reading devotions about patience and heartache, and how God ALWAYS has a perfect purpose in it all. Life can be so hard, and this year is proving that more than ever. But God is still sovereign, still perfect, still our loving Father who will guide us and help us and hold us through the storms.

    It makes me think of James 1:2 - 4.

    "My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."

    We have a good God!

    Thank you for sharing your heart with us. It is always a blessing. <3

  4. "He's not a tame lion." <--- YES. I love that you put this quote here. <3 This whole post is so real and deep and good. One of my favorite things to think about (and let me know if I've told you this before, I have a terrible memory. XD) is that the arrow doesn't know why it's being pulled away from the target, but without that it can't go forward. <3
