These past few days, the thought of how much I’d give to fast forward 10 years or so has been going through my mind. For a glimpse. To see all the pieces fit together, all the situations work themselves out, and to see the beginnings of what You have in store for my life. To see the novel, unexpected, but completely wonderful that will be coming my way, but to also see certain circumstances fade and shrink.
I guess to some extent, even though I know that things won’t always be this hard and unpredictable, being able to say “I saw how the story ends, and this isn’t it. It’s so much better than this.” What I’d give to be able to say that.
But then, every day, God gently reminds me that the best really is yet to come. That He’s already been there and seen how it ends, and this really isn’t it. And even though I always forget that, I’ll gladly trust His word over my future over my own sight.
