When you read the title of this post most of you will recall it appears in 1 Corinthians 13:12. The verse 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.” 1 Cor. 13:12 (KJV)
It comes in the well-known chapter Paul writes about love and whatever translation we choose, it serves as a reminder that we do not see well now.
We know that, but we can also get stuck. We can get stuck because sometimes we just want answers because the lack of answers or those that make no sense to us are intolerable. We can also get stuck because in the absence of light to see everything clearly, we can add things. We add things many times because we see a pattern or at least a part of a pattern. Sometimes we add things on the positive view of God or the situation and sometimes we add negative things on our view of Him.
We’re looking for clues to help us discover missing pieces of information. What we may not know is whether or not we have all the clues needed to solve the mystery we seek to uncover.

The blogging community is a special place where I have developed special relationships with other writers, authors, and bloggers whom I have never met in person. Through their writing and images I have come to know their hearts and love for the Lord. Today it’s my privilege to be sharing as a guest with Debbie Kitterman.
Debbie is an author, speaker, and founder of Dare 2 Hear, a ministry designed to train others to hear the Lord’s voice. She’s currently hard at work finishing a new book you will want to look for this fall.
