One thing I’ve learned and want to share, teach, preach, and imprint on tee-shirts is:

Regardless of how impossible life becomes . . . GOD IS WORKING in all the details . . .  to bring about something GOOD from it all.

It’s God’s promise to you and I.  I mean, PROMISE–which will never be broken or left undone.

~God’s PROMISE is the all in caps kind-of-word.  BOLD TRUTH.

The PROMISE  is ongoing in my life and in your life.

When I look backwards on what seemed impossibly hard, I see the good that came out of it all.  There are two words which explain this phenomena: ONLY, GOD.

The last few decades taught me there is the “already” and the “not yet” of God.

Some of the details of life have “already” been brought together for good and some are PROMISED for the “not yet.”

When you get to know me, it doesn’t take long to understand how much I love babies and children.  Among many reasons, they’re the living PROMISE of the “already” and “not yet” of God

It’s written this way:   

And we know that all things

work together for good

to those who love God,

to those who are

the called

according to His purpose.

(Romans 8:28, NKJV).


When I look at the impossible, I lean into the PROMISE of God being at work to bring all the details together for good.


I take on the assignment to love God with trust in it all, which by the way is not always easy . . .  BUT . . .  is the bottom line to it all.

I can tell you for sure I’ve “already” experienced the impossible becoming possible, the hard becoming good, the end becoming a beginning.


I have great hope for the “not yet.”

So, hold on, let your “already” remind you that there is much to come in your “not yet.”  –Kerrie

. . .

It’s amazing to see the “already” in these sweet human beings and anticipate their “not yet“:
