Vision

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. – I Corinthians 13:12

Our little dachshund, Hogan, has cataracts. We’ll be going to the vet again soon, but for now his vision is cloudy due to them. As I understand it, his eyes work just fine, but his vision is impaired because the lens is clouded.

I’ve noticed he is more cautious due to his lack of vision. He doesn’t venture as far and he hesitates when he does go out. All because he can’t quite see. One day soon, the vet will take those cataracts off and Hogan will see clearly what he can now only make out as shapes and shadows.

I’ve noticed he moves with more confidence if Eileen or I go with him. He seems to be comforted by our presence.

The Bible tells us our spiritual vision is clouded for now. There are a lot of things we see but can’t understand. There are some things we can only make out as shadows and shapes as it were with no real understanding.

One day, our vision will be made clear. We will see and understand. Things which perplex us now will make sense.

Until then, we can take comfort in knowing God sees it all, understands it all and is sovereign over all. And, He goes with His children. We can move forward in confidence and comfort knowing He cares for His own and will get us Home.
