Seeing dimly through a dirty windshield.


I captured this picture on my way home from the big city this weekend.  I was simply mesmorized by the beautiful sunset and couldn’t stop giving glory to God for how feakin’ beautiful it was!  I mean seriously.  Now, as I was driving for some reason I couldn’t be bothered to stop and get out of my car and take the picture; I needed to take it while driving(I know..stupid) through a ridiculously dirty windshield!  As I was rolling my eyes at my own ridiculousness the Lord brought to mind 1 Corinthians 13:12, ” For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face.  Now I know in part; but then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”   As beautifully breathtaking as I thought this sunset was I was looking at it through a dirty window and it is only a dim reflection of the true beauty of God!  God is that awesome. God is that beautiful.  

Also, my life is a rather large mystery at the moment.  I know very little about what God is doing and about what He has planned, but I do know that He is at work and He knows me.  I can’t wait for the Day when I do see fully the hows and the whys of it all.  Yet, even now this time, this season is a part of being fully known and God having me right where he wants me to be.  We don’t get to know it all, we don’t get to understand it all and even when we think we do, we are really looking through a dirty windshield.  I am so thankful to the Lord that even through the dead bugs, smudges, and pot-marks the view is still gorgeous because He is in it, He is in my sights and His glory will be reveled through and in my life!  I am so thankful that I am His and He is mine.
