1Corinthians 13:12

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

Oh man, this has surely been the season for difficult life events.  A very dear Christian friend of mine and her family have had a very long season of bad news and struggles; the newest of which came today.  Sometimes we want to scream, “When is it enough, Lord?”

The picture above is of our patio door leading out into our backyard.  We have had those crosses on that door for years.  Last week I saw a message in that door of crosses.  I could hear God saying to me, “When looking out to the world, filter your vision through Me; through My Son; through the Holy Spirit.  See Us first, then you are ready to walk out into the world.”

Struggles happen and some seasons of life are heavy with the weight of those struggles.  The only way to survive those struggles and to claim victory over them is to see the world through the filter of God the Father, Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit.  When I open our patio door and begin my journey outside I think of passing through this world into the Kingdom of God which is just beyond the veil……..”then we shall see face to face.”
