Hindsight


“It is hard to sense the Spirit’s presence in any particular moment. However, with hindsight it is amazing to see His work.” (Pastor Timothy Keller)

“Every moment of my life is for my salvation. Even the tragedies and disasters that befall me (including those of my own making) seem, in hindsight, to have been something that in the hand of God is doing me good.” (Father Stephen Freeman)

“…God’s works are not always clear to us while they are unfolding. But in hindsight His purpose often becomes clear.” (Orthodox Study Bible, Acts 12:9-11)

“We have all heard the saying that ‘hindsight is 20/20.’ That’s not completely true. I know myself and plenty of other people who have missed the obvious patterns of our lives because we are wrongly focused. We are too riddled with anxiety about an imagined future or an inaccurate reflection of the past. But if we are prayerful and living the sacramental life with the right heart, we are able to discern the patterns of our lives and then hindsight reveals God’s hand at work.” (Sacramental Living Blog)

“When we come to accept the providential care of God with childlike simplicity we soon discover that the barriers we encounter in our lives, can in retrospect, come to be numbered among our greatest blessings.” (Rev. Andrew Demotses)
