Through a Glass Darkly. . .

The other day during church, I glanced down at the floor where the light was pouring in through the window.  I could see the movement of a butterfly flitting around in these shadows.  Although I was just looking at the shadows on the floor, I could tell it was a butterfly by its shape and movement, yet I couldn't see its colors  or the beauties of its wings.

In this world, we can not clearly see the beauties of our Lord.  He is but a shadow to us.  As the Scriptures say, "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 Corinthians 13:12.)

There will be a day when the Glory of our Lord will be revealed and we will know Him in ways we can never know while walking this earth.  

Let us look to our future with great anticipation and joy, for there are great days ahead.

"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, 
neither have entered into the heart of man, 
the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him."
