Three Strands

Published by Rodrick Bates on


Immeasurable distances. Immeasurable times. Only God knows who, what, where, and why. The day he brought us into each other’s lives, I realized that I’m experiencing God’s most precious prize, love. It’s not about you; it’s not about me; it’s all about us. You, me, and God! Now that we have God braided throughout our hearts; we are one and a rope is formed to never allow us to part. With these three strands: God, woman, and man; no storm can be too stormy and no devil can be too devilish. Our love is conjoined by a God who can weather devilish pits. It just doesn’t get better than this. When it came to love, I felt like God was never aiming for me and now that I’m hit… it feels like I’ve never been missed. I would always question his plan but I never stopped praying, and till this day I know it was faith that delivered these three strands.
