Before the Morning

Last week I posted a song which God had used to minister to my heart. In the comments, Jodi suggested I should listen to Before the Morning, by Josh Wilson. And in my search for that song, I found the story behind it - which I am posting today. Because it's that good. You've got to watch it!

There's one line from this video which has been sticking with me:
If we can trust God with our eternity, we've got to trust Him with our now.
Oh, how true it is!
God is big enough, powerful enough, good enough and wise enough to handle our eternity. HE can most certainly handle our now. Amen?

OK, time to watch the video.
But, um, you might want to grab a tissue first.

I love this song! When my good friend/sisterfriend was at her "i'm done" stage of her marriage--and I was right there with her--I heard this song for the first time. And you know what? the pain and darkness she was suffering through DID come right before the healing and morning. Now they are on the road to real recovery. But it was dark. It felt hopeless. I LOVE this song!

Oh, and I thought to myself, I'm sure I won't need a tissue. Karen's heart is more tender to these stories than I am. And then, I noticed a tear rolling down my cheek about 1/2 way through!
sheepishly admitting you were right.

Jodi - I was glad you suggested it. Had heard the song before, but never listened closely. So - Thanks!

Debby Ann - You're welcome. *grin*

Leslie - Yes, we do!!!

Gianna - You always make me smile.
That's wonderful about your sisterfriend!

If we can trust God with our eternity, we've got to trust Him with our now. How true.

Thanks for sharing Karen. I really want to share this video.

Will think about this video the next time I hear this song on the radio.
