We Only See in Part

We only see in part
And cannot understand
The fullness of God perfect love
Or working of His hand

Sometimes the things we see
Of hurt and pain and grief
Are whispers of God’s love to draw
Us from our unbelief

We cannot see the plan
Inspiring His will
All we can do is trust the One
Who whispers, Peace, be still

Recently I heard someone reminds us that we were never intended to understand God or His ways, but we are to trust Him, knowing His way is perfect.

Peter didn’t understand either when Jesus told them that He is going to suffer and die, and then rise on the third day.

 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.  And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “Far be it from you, Lord! This shall never happen to you.”  But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.” Matt. 16: 21-23

We cry ‘why’
He whispers trust

We cry ‘fight’
He whispers peace

We cry ‘take’
He whispers give

We cry ‘revenge’
He whispers love

We cry ‘self’
He whispers ME

I love this song!
