Ironically, a verse that Bryson didn’t even read is what actually jumped out at me. I had never read this in the Message before.
“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!”
I don’t know about you, but I find great comfort in this verse. God knows that we don’t understand everything, and He empathizes with us. But someday He’ll let us in on His plans. Now if I only could wait with patience and faith, I’d be okay.
