Yet

Three letters make for a very short word.

Long, multi-syllabic, many-lettered words seem somehow more important than tiny, seemingly inconsequential ones.  Sometimes we wish we had a big word on the tip of our tongue to use to make a big impression.  But sometimes the littlest word can change everything.  A word like…yet.

Yet does change everything.  Yet reveals the other side of the story.

YET those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength.  They will mount up with wings like eagles.  They will run and not get tired, they will walk and not faint.  Isaiah 40:31

Though He slay me, YET will I trust Him.  Job 13:15

YET in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.  Romans 8:37

We are hard pressed on every side, YET not crushed.  2 Corinthians 4:8

And He will YET deliver us.  2 Corinthians 1:10

Strength, trust, victory, protection, deliverance – all because of a little word.

YET does change everything.

One thought on “Yet

  1. This was one of my favorite ideas in the book. I want to be a “yet” woman, too, but it’s something I really struggle with. I’m a really visual person, so I wrote out many of the verses you included in the chapter on individual sticky notes, and then stuck them all over my apartment. That way I can remember to reflect on them and keep them in my heart as I go through my day.
