Puzzling Reflections

It used to be that during trials and tribulations the puzzling circumstances and unclear future would send me down a dark path of fear and anxiety.  I resented God for not painting a perfectly clear picture of my future, and I used to pray and pray for clarity that would not come.  My journey in prayer ministry has helped me to accept the puzzling circumstances and imperfect views God gives me.  I am not meant to understand fully, and I can rest in God’s hand knowing the uncertainty.  It is a miracle I am able to trust God today.  No matter what I see, no matter how puzzling the circumstances, and no matter how unclear or imperfect everything seems, I am OK with not knowing everything NOW.  1 Corinthians 13:12 states, “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.”   I trust God knows me completely, and I know that one day I will see with perfect clarity and rejoice with my Savior.
