sometime, when all life's lessons have been learned,
and sun and stars forevermore have set,
the things which our weak judgments here have spurned,
the things o'er which we grieved with lashes wet,
will flash before us out of life's dark night,
as stars shine most in deeper tints of blue;
and we shall see how all God's plans are right,
and how what seemed reproof was love most true.
then be content poor heart;
God's plans, like lilies pure and white, unfold;
we must not tear the close-shut leaves apart,-
time will reveal the chalices of gold.
and if, through patient toil, we reach the land
where tired feet, with sandals loosed, may rest,
when we shall clearly see and understand,
i think that we will say, "God knew the best!"
--- may riley smith.

" 'for I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. you will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.' " jeremiah 29:11-13

let's place our lives calendars at God's feet and allow Him to handle the scheduling of the details. He sure will reveal things under the right circumstances. sometime when we are in heaven, we will hopefully get more clarity on the questions God has withheld the answers to in the now. in this life we may not understand all He does, but sometime, we will possess the perspective of heaven.
