One Day, You Will Understand


Oh my Lord, I do not know what Your plans are
But one day, I know I will understand
The trials I’ve been through so far
The ones I can barely stand

To walk through –
Where were You?


Oh My little children
You ask where I’ve been

You do not realize what I do
But one day, you shall understand.
Waters you passed though – I not only saw you
All the while, I was there,  silently holding your hand.

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” John 13:07

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you.” (Isaiah 43:2)

This was inspired by the April 2018 focus Scripture on Inside Cup (I know – it’s been sitting in my drafts for over a year. O.o Shame on me.) and I never shared it. And then recently I was inspired to expand upon it with the Isaiah verse in mind. Hope you enjoyed. ❤

  1. Very good, Grace! 🙂 God’s plans are mysterious. Like why did He allow the devil to tempt Job? Or why did He go into the desert for 40 days before He was crucified? Only God knows. 🙂

  2. I believe this was shared at the right time. God’s ways are not our ways, but we have to learn to put our trust in Him and that requires faith. Thanks for this reminder, Grace! 💙

  4. The visual structure of this poem is so fun! And I loved the message of it, too. It is a precious and needed reminder – to trust in the Lord, because He always knows what He is doing! And even in the midst of our trials, in the midst of not understanding, He is with us, and that is a promise we can always cling to. ❤️ Reminds me that there are so many verses about not being afraid because He is with us. If we could only remember that, and remember WHO HE IS, we would walk through every trial with an audacious confidence! Isaiah 41:10!!! Thanks for sharing this, dear friend! It was a blessing to meditate on! 💜
