WE SEE IMPERFECTLY
"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 13:12KJV
We all go through painful times when we are hurting, lonely, undergoing medical treatment, and on the surface, the pieces of our life don’t make sense. We think they cannot be a part of God’s plan. Pain is a part of life, and it often feels like a dark place. It is easy to get discouraged and think, God, why did this happen? You have to trust that even then, God doesn’t make any mistakes. He has already designed your life and laid out every piece down to the smallest detail. He never said we would understand everything along the way. God didn’t promise that there wouldn’t be any pain, suffering, or disappointment. But He did promise that it would all work out for our good. That piece that is painful, that doesn’t look as though it makes sense—when everything comes together, it is going to fit perfectly in place. You just cannot see it now because the other pieces are not in place.
PRAYER POINT "Father, thank You that there is a purpose for whatever pain comes my way and that You only allow what I can handle and what is for my good. Thank You that though I may not understand it now, the day is coming when I will see it clearly and understand. In Jesus’ Name, Amen."
