 Carol's Journey


Nevertheless means despite the situation
However, yet, or not at all as implications
For the Christian, total trust in the outcome
Joy and sorrow when loved one called home

Time waiting for God to answer your prayer
Hours turn into days, months and even years
Nevertheless His plan is far beyond our ways
He will answer when His time is right always

What is the nevertheless right now in your life?
Maybe temp job causing undue stress and strife
Betrayed by unfair management staff decisions
Nevertheless you will trust His hand of provision

Jesus cried out to His Father in deep anguish
In Garden of Gethsemane used that language
If possible for cup of suffering be taken away
Nevertheless His Father’s will Jesus prayed

Jesus prepared disciples when He would leave 
After Calvary and resurrection from the grave
It was to their benefit He return to His Father
Nevertheless so He could send the Comforter

Jesus gave all believers reason to rejoice even
Nevertheless for names written down in heaven
My friend, is your name in the book of life now?
No place exists in between to purge sins somehow

Jesus is the only answer to nevertheless situations
Hope alone for all those sealed by His redemption
Jesus’ blood paid the debt for every sin at Calvary
Faith in Him is the only way to heaven for eternity

NOTE:  Based partly on Matt. 26:39, John 16:7, and Luke 10:20b
              with Rev. 20 reference below

Revelation 20:12-15 (ESV)
12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books
were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the
dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. 
13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead
who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they
had done. 14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second
death, the lake of fire.15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, 
he was thrown into the lake of fire.
