Nevertheless, afterward

North Star


Nevertheless afterward.” (Hebrews 12:11)

There is more. This is not the end of your story. The song “You are More” by Tenth Avenue North includes this beautiful lyric:

“You are more than the choices that you’ve made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You’ve been remade.”

Sometimes we get all caught up in the mire. But if we look back and see how far we’ve come it can give us a pretty good perspective of what blessings God has for our future.

As we get ready to wrap up 2015 and stare down the barrel of 2016 prepare for “nevertheless afterward”. After the storm, above the circumstance, in the next chapter…

You can always count on God to make the “afterward” of difficulties, if rightly overcome, a thousand times richer and fairer than the forward. “No chastening…seemeth joyous…nevertheless afterward…” What a yield! -Streams in the Desert
