Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

squinting

The windshield wipers on my car need to be replaced. I find myself squinting as I try to see through the raindrops. This reminds me of 1 Corinthians 13: 12-13.

“We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.” (MSG)

Only God sees all that is going on. For now we see only pieces.   Oh what a day that will be when we see Jesus. Just the thought of it makes me break out into song.

“It will be worth it all, when we see Jesus; Life’s trials will seem so small, when we see Christ; One glimpse of His dear face, all sorrow will erase, So bravely run the race til we see Christ.”

But for now: let us trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, and love extravagantly.

(The Message Bible uses trust, many other translations use faith. Trust is our faith in action.)

With your whole heart trust God (Proverbs 3:5)

Be a prisoner of hope (Zech 9:12)

How does your love walk compare with 1 Cor 13?

We all have room for growth.

til next time
