“The Rest of God” – Mark Buchanan

Her past was beyond repair, if there was any good thing there to salvage I knew not now.  But God showed me she had her future.  And it was vast, unbroken, pristine, radiant.  

It was pure promise:  a Glory that would be revealed in her, a Glory that outweighed her present troubles, the Glory of the One who was coming to redeem her and transform her.  

Her past was a tragedy to lament, but her future was an epic to anticipate, which is simply to say:

What will happen matters more than what has happened.

“hers” – her smile, her face, her teeth, her eyes, her nose, her posture, her fingers and her so many others – never leave my heart!
