think of it this way, when you look through a telescope you can see in great detail the craters on the moon. from the cheep seats you can see the sweat on the players with binoculars. with a magnifying glass, the amazing designs of a small insect. over our existence, humans have developed ways to see what we cannot see. through our desire to learn, understand and enjoy our world more fully we have found ways to get a closer look. and as close as we can get to outer space we have only barely scratched the surface of what is there. our relationship with God can be seen or unseen in the same way…although we don’t have physical tools to help us see our faith clearer, we do have the ability to glow closer and see Him more clearly. most of us have had the experience of seeing Him up close in the birth of a child, a death, in tough times and miraculous blessings. and if we focus in on day to day prayers, devotional reading and worship we can allow ourselves to blow of the dust, wipe the foggy glass, and zoom in on a clear vision of our faith and creator. only then can we can see.
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. 1Corinthians 13:12
