careful, it's thick out there

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."  Proverbs 3:5-6

Weather report:  "Heavy morning this fog, beware."

Without question the report meant driving slower to work, but walking too?  As Bella and i charged out for our early morning walk, we found it necessary to reduce our pace. The milky air caused the road ahead to vanish into never-land.  The objects ahead were questionable -- was it a tree, light post or a person?  My path that's normally certain, appeared different and obscure.

Fog can fall upon us in an instant... unexpected bad news, the loss of a loved one, a disappointing test result, a broken relationship, sickness, job loss, family rebellion, dishonesty, rejection.  The fog conjures up doubt, fear, anger and confusion, distorting our vision.  Unable to distinguish between what's real or not, how can we continue?

Whether the density of the fog is like buttermilk or skim milk, we must remember God still cares, and He has a clear vision for us.  As we trust Him with all areas of our life, His Peace calms and diminishes our jitters.  In His perfect time, the Son burns away the fog surrounding us and His glory clearly shines through. 

With God the path to peace is perfectly clear... with or without fog.

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
