Herbert Cooper was headed down a very different road, living a reckless lifestyle that would have destroyed him in the end, but God had a different plan. He heard the gospel at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting, at which he wasn't even supposed to be, and he gave his life to Christ. Two words changed Cooper's life: But God.
These two words can change every single person's life - But God. Each word is only three letters long. The phrase is short, but the implications are huge. The path may look bleak, dim, and hopeless... but GOD changes everything... We've all sinned - whether it is sex outside of marriage, a bitter heart, alcohol or drug abuse, cheating, or lying. Maybe you're at a place in your life where it just feels like things are falling apart. Perhaps you're portraying one thing on the outside and living something else on the inside. Maybe you are simply going through the motions of a life that's not quite what you hoped it would be. These moments drag us down - leaving us feeling hopeless and lost. You need something to happen in your life to change. You need a But God... moment. The But God moments are when God comes in and offers a new path and hope for our lives. These moments occur when we are at are lowest, and turn our down-trodden worlds around for the better. It is up to us to recognize and seize these moments when they occur and follow the renewed path God offers.

I did not realize how much is but will mean to me when I started reading it. It came at a time my life when I needed truly to let go and let God. It has given me an awakening to how many but God moments up had in my life. I thank you Pastor for writing his book and being obedient to God and I thank you for the change that I feel in my heart started to occur sense reading this book. I pray now that I can walk on the path that is set before me and I allow God to continue those but God moments of my life a lot more willingly then I have in the past thank you.
