Glimpses


"The divine cannot be easily explained or clearly defined, but yet God is not completely out of reach either; divine mysteries can be glimpsed." (Jeffrey L. Morrow)

“Beauty is always something of a mystery; it defies understanding…Beauty is not simply an adornment of the good; it is a glimpse of the transcendent revealed through the splendor of being…the Incarnation embodies this beauty, for Christ is the absolute Beauty of God.” (Sr. Dr. Vassa Larin, Lisa Coutras)

“He [God] has given us a glimpse of His creation. But it is only a glimpse; we cannot see into the future of comprehend everything. So we must trust God now and do His work on earth.” (Life Application Study Bible, Ecclesiastes 3:9-13)

“The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It’s enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren’t worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon…From the glimpses of heaven given us by Jesus, we know that whatever else heaven is, it’s full of Joy.” (Joni Eareckson Tada, Ken Gire)

“The glimpses God gives us in life, those moments of pure love and joy that unfortunately do not last, are foretastes of the reality we can and will experience eternally if we seek union with Him now and continue to grow in that union.” (Sacramental Living Blog)
