We have a great friend who just returned from a vacation in the French Alps.
She and her husband were so exciting about seeing the majestic mountains but upon arrival all they could see was a thick fog out of their hotel window.
They were told that Mount Blanc was just right there and they would have this incredible view but all they could see was fog.
The next day it was the same thing and the day after that the same thing.
On the last day right before they were to leave, the fog disappeared and the clouds opened! There it was – majestic Mount Blanc! It was so incredible and worth the wait to see.
What’s amazing is it was there all the time even though they could not see it.
1 Corinthians 13:12 reminds us “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a 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.”
As you celebrate this Christmas season, remember He is Emmanuel! He is with us even when you can’t see Him.
Praying you have an incredible weekend gathering.
