How often have you been faced with what seemed to be insurmountable odds? Or plagued with one setback after another? What about times when you have no strength to muster, courage to pull from, or the will to carry on? We all have faced that brick wall of despair where hope was lost and obstacles grew taller. But God!
Grace and mercy are real and relevant and just as the aforementioned, how many more times can you say, but God! I thought I was dead, but God. I thought I would get evicted, but God. I thought I was losing my mind, but God. I thought my children were headed for destruction, but God. I thought my marriage was doomed for failure, but God. I thought, I thought, I thought… BUT GOD!
Author @HerbertCooper pens his latest work entitled, #ButGod, and speaks directly about how the power of God changes everything! A personal testimony about life’s twists, trials, and triumphs, Cooper expresses how “the BUT GOD moments come in and offer a new path and hope for our lives. These moments occur when we are at are lowest, and turn our down-trodden worlds around for the better. It is up to us to recognize and seize these moments when they occur and follow the renewed path God offers. The phrase is short, but the implications are huge. The path may look bleak, dim, and hopeless…BUT GOD changes everything!”
If you find yourself in a bleak, dim, or hopeless situation, I encourage you to look your situation square in the face and yell, BUT GOD! Pick up Herbert Cooper’s book, But God and instead of telling God how big your storm is, tell your storm how big your God is!
