Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.[a] All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. (New Living Translation)- 1 Corinthians 13:12
As I read this verse it brought back memories of a blog I wrote some time ago called “He ain’t heavy He’s my brother.”
There are times in life we simply don’t understand the “why” of God’s plans. This was only one time in my life that I neither understood nor accepted there just was not an answer. It took along time for me to come to terms with the fact that there are times there is no understandable reason and I would have to just let it go and trust God.
This verse gave me hope and understanding that someday I would know the reason and the why. After many years of tormententing myself becoming bitter and being angry with God. I finally found peace and acceptance in just knowing I did not need to have an answer to my why’s or a reason for what happened. I knew that those questions would be answered the day I meet Jesus.
There have been many times in my life that I didn’t understand but God does and that’s enough. It is not for me to question the mind and ways of God. I must simply accept He is God and His plan is perfect.
For He has said:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,”plans to prosper you and not to harm you,plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
