Afterward

Joel 2:18-32

Joel 2:28 “And Afterward,”

Things aren’t going well.

Joel 1:2 “Hear this, you elders; listen, all who live in the land. Has anything like this ever happened in your days or in the days of your forefathers?”

Have you ever had it where things weren’t going well, everything around you was sort of falling apart?

That’s how Joel saw things where he was living and he tried telling people to straighten up because he did not see how things were going to be restored until some repentance/change occurred.

So he told people what he saw was coming and then he says “And Afterward.”

In his song “Your Mother and I” Loudon Wainwright III says, “Somehow, somewhere, something went wrong...”

That’s how it is. We go through something terrible, we don’t know why, we may try to place blame, but somehow, somewhere, something went wrong… and then there’s afterward.

Rest assured, Jesus is with us before, Jesus is with us during, and Jesus is with us after. Jesus is with us! Have faith, Romans 11:1 “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”

Somehow, somewhere, something will go wrong, but there will be an afterward and Jesus will be there also.

Remember, You are a wonderful, loving, precious child of GOD! Amen
