LOVE SEES CLEARLY

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”
(1 Corinthians 13:12 ESV
I have often heard people say that love is blind.
Not so!
God sees us very clearly: frailty, flaws, strengths, talents, gifts and all.
He knows us fully and loves us completely.
I find great comfort in this. For one thing, there is nothing to hide; for another, He is not caught off guard by things that are complete surprises to me.
He knows what I need before I even ask; He knows what brings out the best in me.
He knows the parts of me that I have not yet discovered, and He knows when to reveal them.
Perhaps the greatest blessing of all is, He has all of this knowledge about me AND He loves me!

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
