Waiting to Understand

In life there are many questions that can’t be answered. Why are children abused? Why do good people suffer? Why do seemingly evil people prosper? The Psalmists these things in Bible times, just as we do today. In the book of 1 Corinthians, the apostle Paul tells us that these things will be answered in time, we just have to wait:

“Now we see but a dim 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.” 1 Corinthians 13:12

There is Southern gospel song with the same message. It’s called Farther Along. The authorship of this beautiful song is disputed, it has been recorded by many artists since it was first printed in a Church of God hymnal in 1911. My favorite is a version sung by Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris.
