The Fog

For the past two mornings the fog has been very thick while driving to work.
When driving through fog, I don’t take anything for granted, so I slow down and drive according to the visibility ahead. Ultimately, I don’t have a clue what the next two hundred yards of road will bring.
This is a parallel to my own life. I’ve been on a foggy journey, so I know what it’s like to look down a winding path that seems to never end. I know the pain of feeling along, afraid and confused. But somewhere along the way, God sent exactly what I needed in order to keep pushing through the fog.
It’s true when Paul said, “We walk by faith and not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). It’s our faith that keep us moving forward, and without it, it is truly like driving in the fog.
Perhaps your circumstance has created a fog. It has clouded your judgment and your ability to see clearly. The bottom line is, it has wrecked real havoc in your life.
My friend, the Lord knows how foggy your journey can get. But He gives you a light and a promise that you can count on. Trust Him, He know what’s ahead better than you do. After all, His vision is perfect, and He knows just how to guide you through. -- Stay strong and endure, you will make it to your destination.
Scripture indicates that “We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us” (1 Corinthians 13:12).
