A Glass Darkly

 

There is an old hymn titled, “We’ll Understand It Better By and By”  written by Charles Albert Tindley.

Here are some of the lyrics:

Trials dark on every hand,
and we cannot understand
all the ways of God would lead us
to that blessed promised land;
but He guides us with his eye,
and we’ll follow till we die,
for we’ll understand it better by and by.

 

Trials, hardships.

Storms.

Arguments.

Illnesses.

They make our vision dark and confusing.

We may ask ourselves why God would lead us to live with Him someday through a journey that looks like the one we’re on.

Sometimes, it is difficult to understand.

Yet, He does guide us and we must follow Him.

We will understand the “whys” of our lives later on.

1 Corinthians 13:12 reads,

“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.”

 

 

 

 

It’s hard to see at times, looking through a glass.

The images are skewed and our perception is weak.

There will be a day when the story of our own life will be clear.

We will understand it better, by and by.
