Unbearable Pain

Not everyone is celebrating Father’s Day today. Some are dealing with unbearable, unthinkable pain.

Steven Curtis Chapman, a Christian singer, has a large Family. One of his teenage sons accidentally killed his young daughter. Unbearable, unthinkable.

This is a song from his newest CD, Beauty Will Rise, called I Will Trust You. I pray somehow it gives those that need it, a glimpse of hope.

  1. What a great testimony he’s been throughout this ordeal. I love his song Cinderella. Life is truly fleeting, but God has placed eternity in our hearts for a reason.

  2. Job 13:15
    “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him”

    You’re so right. None of us want that test. A woman from my Bible study lost her adult son in a car accident this past year. It’s a hard struggle looking at it from the outside. I can only imagine what it’s like inside the arena.

    1. I’s impossible to understand the gut-wrenching horror.

      Perhaps the best defense is a great offense.

      Live life so that when we, or someone we love dearly, are called, there is little room for regret.

      Like the Diamond Rio song, “One More Day”…

  3. Love that song too. Had the privilege of seeing them live a couple of times in the last few years. That song came out right before 9/11. I think that event put life in perspective for a lot of people, but maybe the memory is fading somewhat.

  4. Wow, must have been a great concert.
    Yeah, fading can be a challenge.
    Like if our faith ever faded, or our hope.
    I hate fading.
    It’s the devil’s work, allowing us to get comfortable.
    We can rest after we die.
    Until then, work hard, count our blessings (all day long), and rejoice that we have a Father that Loves us like He does.
