And yet...

What comes to your mind when you see those words? And yet... ... ...
I’m not sure what you are thinking, but those are some powerful words. It means there is perseverance, persistence,  endurance,  FAITHFULNESS, etc.

The last verse in Psalm 89 uses this word and it hit me like a ton of bricks. The first half of the Psalm (verses 1-26) is all praise to God and telling Him how awesome and legit He is. Then the other half (verses 27-51) is about questioning God, if He is really there. Then BAM...the last verse (v. 52) uses the words  AND YET.  “And yet – blessed be the Lord forever!” wow. (Most versions don’t use the words “and yet,” but it’s still POWERFUL. wow)
That is what we need, that kind of character. Through thick and thin, a brother that will always be there. Things may go horrible, AND YET I will praise the Lord.  (always hold me accountable to that!)
