Twenty years ago today on a balmy July evening, I packed a few things in a suitcase and rolled it out the door of 4962 Heyer Ave.; slamming my heart shut to God and placing the final nail in the coffin of our slain marriage.
Several days before I left, I wrote these words in my journal: “Why? Why did all of this have to happen?” No doubt Clint was wondering the same thing, as he watched his stone-hearted wife turn her back on him…and walk out our front door.
Eleven years of wondering.
“Now we see a dim reflection, as if we were looking into a mirror, but then we shall see clearly. Now I know only a part, but then I will know fully, as God has known me.” 1 Corinthians 13:12
During our mission to Corinth earlier this year, we understood Paul’s words in a deeper way. The photo to the left is the kind of mirror that would have been used in Biblical times. Not much chance of clarity from a surface like that, is there?
Why? Why did “all of this” have to happen?
Because God has the panoramic picture in pristine view.
