Is life uneventful and uninspiring because of our age limitations? Is it boring or tedious? Far from it! It is an exciting, ever extending learning curve of new experiences with a childlike expectation of the new horizons we see on each day’s travels. I am reminded of 1 Corinthians 13:11 & 12.
Verse 11: When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child…
It was difficult in our younger years to imagine growing older, and now I see that difficult as it was for us then so it is now for a younger generation to empathise with our situation. They may have a vague idea of the difficulties that come with age, but imagine that it won’t be the same for them. One has to experience to understand, and only in a relationship with Jesus Christ and the knowledge of what is in store for us can we live in joyful expectation.
Verse 12: Now we see but a poor 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.
From the windows of the hospital room I look out across a wide river, and today it was shrouded in mist. Grey and brooding with showery breezes dappling the ripples it was hard to imagine the difference from its appearance on a sunny day, but that is what life is about.
Some days it may be gloomy but seasons come and go with Son-shine always ahead.
