Three little words…

I didn’t know three little words could have such a strong impact.  I was scrolling through my email when I saw them. Tears immediately filled my eyes. It was an email notification of a blog post from Holley Gerth and this picture was displayed in the email viewing pane:

And then God…

I was glad it didn’t say, “but then God.”  To me that would have been like saying, “I’m sorry, but…”, or “I have feelings for you, but…”  The “but” takes away what is mentioned in the beginning of the sentence.

Saying, “but then God…” would take away whatever struggle came before it, and I wouldn’t want that to happen.  The struggles I’ve been through have shaped me into the person that I’ve become.  I don’t ever want to forget them because it reminds me where I’ve been, how far I have come, and where I am going.

And then God…those words fill me with hope.  It’s exciting to think about what God is going to do.

I’ve had many “and then God” moments in my life.  There are also some things that I’m still waiting for the “and then God” moment to happen.  It may not happen the way that I think it will, and it may not happen at all. I’m ok with that because in the end He knows what is best for me.

The best example I have of that is the journey He has placed me on these last almost 8 years.  What I thought was the best for me, for my family…turned out not to be the best at all.  My faith was hanging by a thread, my child was surviving by a thread…AND THEN GOD…

The world is hurting folks.  Step out of your comfort zone and love….and then God…
