There was more than one time in my journey with my son through his troubles that I was ready to give up hope. A recent song on Christian radio reminded me of one of those times. It is by Big Daddy Weave. Hit the link below to listen, not the ‘official’ video, but one with lyrics. The song is called Alive, but the refrain is “But God.”
One morning exasperated and losing hope I just kept hearing, “But God” Finally I went to look up the Scripture. There are quite a few times that the Word says ‘But God.” One example:
“Because the patriarchs were jealous of Joseph, they sold him as a slave into Egypt. But God was with him.Acts 7:9 NIV
All seemed lost, BUT GOD …. just like in Joseph’s life, moved, acted, was at work behind the scenes in my son’s life, in hearts and minds I did not know about. At the time all I did was cling to those two words, never discounting the power of God to touch my son’s heart, arrange circumstances, allow His will to come forth.
Are there places today where you need to just stand still, and allow your heart to remember ‘But God?’ Trust He will have His own way in things we are no longer trying to orchestrate. As the wisdom saying goes,” Let go and let God.”
