A year ago, my dad and his wife died in a car accident. Then and now: it hurts.
A person I’d loved my entire lifetime and another I’d only known less than a year were tragically gone…
I’ve been and still am: angry, confused, bitter, regretful, sorrowful, apathetic, depressed, broken, … many things.
I’ve grappled with the knowledge that others have lost loved ones as well, often thinking to myself, “who am I to think that I am any different.”
I’ve asked “why?” too many times to count, knowing that I’ll never know the answer to that question this side of heaven – for we read:
“Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.”
I Corinthians 13:12 (NLT)
I believe clarity will come…
…and yet, at the very moment it does, it probably won’t matter.
For, as the song Soon expresses:
I will be with One I love.
With unveiled face I’ll see Him.
There my soul will be satisfied.
Soon and very soon
