When I first encountered John Piper’s poem on Job, I was blown away. I found it beautiful, moving, insightful, and profoundly helpful, so much so that I bought an audio version for my mom for Mother’s Day a few years back.

My dad brought that poem up to me earlier this week, saying how blessed he had been by it. And tonight I see a tweet saying that they have produced a film version of the poem. You can get it through iTunes or through other avenues (listed here).
This poem will be a blessing to you, I promise. Check it out. And here’s the trailer for the film:
