I Penned this poem today after experiencing a deep sadness when I tried to get my head around all the suffering and brutality that occurs in the world. Tears welled up, and overflowed, with the enormity of unfairness, of poverty, of anxiety, of depression, and of feeling not being able to do anything about it all! I realized that even personally, I don’t live the life I wish to, or yearn for, because of things that are outside of my control. I asked GOD for understanding and clarity and He gave me this word of encouragement which is from the New Testament – 1 Corinthians1 Corinthians 12:12,13
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I shall know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love…’1 Corinthians 12:12,13
It appears that I don’t need to have all the answers after all! One day I will know fully, and see 100% clearly, when I see JESUS face to face. To continue to walk by faith through a ‘dim’ lens is okay to do so, and therein I am strengthened…..
When sight and understanding fail me
and I groan with the weight of despair;
by reading Your Word in the Bible…
