In the search for a clip for Movie Monday I came across the video for the song, ”Before the Morning” by Josh Wilson. There is an amazing testimony by the father of the boy who the song is written about. The father is told that the boy will not live past four days from his birth. If you do anything today, look at the video I posted for Movie Monday.
The song talks about the ‘dark before the morning’ or the ‘hurt before the healing’. As I looked at the video tears began to run down my face as I recalled what Tash and I had to go through the last two years. I remembered trying to be strong when the doctor told us the news that she had to do surgery. Then when we were told that we had to do it a second time in less than a year, I was more than upset. That was definitely the 'dark before the morning'.
Maybe you are going through something right now and you can’t even think about the morning, but God WILL take you through this. God IS faithful. The song also has a line in it that says, ‘life is not a snapshot.’ If I believed that our future was dependant on the snapshot after the 2nd surgery or even the first, I would not have the hope I have now. God has done an awesome thing in my life and in my wife’s life that might not have happened any other way. God has allowed us to bless people we would not have ever met if it wasn’t for this storm. So you might be going through a storm now but hold on for this is the ‘dark before the morning.’
"...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5
