For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV
Sometimes I get frustrated with events in the news. My husband and I try not to watch too much news because it affects our mood, our hope. It seems that our world is changing so fast and not in a way that is always good, but more so, head-scratching, to be honest. What is our world coming to? It looks like it is coming apart, at least to me.
However, I know the One who holds all things together. ALL things. So even when we see the daily crises, the political divide, unheard of severe weather tragedies, riots, increases in crime, un-American behavior, or the very sad Miami building collapse recently, we can know we are only seeing what human eyes can see. God sees the whole picture , though. He sees what we cannot.
It is kind of like we are looking through a camera lens at something in the distance but we do not have a zoom lens or a panoramic view, so we just see one part of the view. God sees all. He has a view of everything all at once. Though we would probably be overwhelmed if we saw everything, including the future, nothing surprises Him. He has everything in control and will allow what He allows. He has our best in mind and the big picture in view.
Someday, we will see Him face-to-face and know more. We will understand better by and by. But for now, we need to be content that we are not God and what we see is only a part of our journey to a future with Him. Though we see only a little picture, God has the big picture in focus! We just have to trust the professional:)
Have a great weekend and enjoy the blessings He sends:)
