In A Fog

It’s foggy out there, isn’t it? I mean with opinions and ideas and so many questions without answers?
It’s like murky water, a little frightening, a little unnerving and we wonder what’s lurking in the unseen and the unknown.

So when we can’t see past the fog and the smog in this crazy life, what do we do? Fog’s no fun and It’s not a bad idea to sit and wait for it to lift before choosing our options, but it might take a while. The foggy places are those places where steps of faith are necessary for our survival. They might be small at first; little baby steps until we get our grounding, but the pierced hand of our Saviour reaches through the fog, ready to catch, carry and guide us through the density of perilous times.

When the fog is heavy and the confusion chaotic and overwhelming, rest quietly, take His hand and let Him lead. You might need to sit quietly for a time in order to hear His word to you, but listen to the still small voice in your ‘soul’ ~ that deep inner voice, not your heart, and not your head as those voices could lead off track! Today, for this time and this season, listen with soul ears! That conscience deep within that God uses to direct us into the proper path! To lead us in the right way into divine wisdom. To keep us from evil, from temptation! From going the wrong direction! From there faith will become stronger as we press in closer to God in the journey. So yeah, beautiful one, Don’t move out into the fog until you hear with Soul ears!

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
Isaiah 30: 21

“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.”
Psalm 25:9

“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”
Isaiah 42:16

When You Can’t See the Light, See the Son

“Light is sweet and it pleases the eyes to see the sun.”

Ecclesiastes 11:7.

Oh, how we love the light after the bleak and after the dreary! When skies are clouded with gray, oh yes, how we love the light then! Oh, how we cherish the rays of the sun when they win and fight their way through tough clouds and how we remember those rays of sunlight with favor in the storms and in the darkness of our lives. Yeah, in those desperately, dark days. sometimes we just want to throw in the towel and cease to run and forget to stand, don’t we?

Yeah, those just ‘give up” kind of days where we, for some reason, just can’t even stand on the promises of God! Some days and some seasons, It’s difficult to stand for the Truth, to stand for what’s right, to stand for the Light, or to stand for anything at all, isn’t it? No light, no sun, no hope, no motivation and who cares anyway? Just give it all up and dissipate into oblivion. It seems so much easier and safer that way!

Beautiful soul, are you ‘standing’ strong still or has uninvited trouble sideswiped you off stance, off course, run you off-track and mislead you out of whack? Has your world spiralled downward with all manner of distractions, and taken you along for the plummet? Yes, even when the sun shines and the days are good, we don’t see the light of it always, because too much stuff is in the way of our belief and too much dark covers our insight and blinds our pathway.

“They have eyes, but they see not, ears, but they hear not”

Jeremiah 5: 21.

We cringe, we fear, we recoil and withdraw because even in the sunlight the mind is bleak and dreary some days. Well, you and I and we and us ~ When we can’t find the sun, it’s crucial that we look to the Son and the Savior to find His love gracing us even in the dark. Find His care watching over us, even in the night. Find His awesome grace sustaining us over the hard places and the difficult challenges. Find the Truth in His Word to light our way and His protection to guard our minds, our hearts and our souls.

Yeah, in the dark, when the sun isn’t shining for the time, we must seek Him, find Him and follow Him! We dare not wait for life to be perfect and light before we determine to see the sweet, sweet light of Jesus’ face in the inclement weather of life itself.

The writer of Ecclesiastes wisely states in 11: 4,

“Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.”

We truly have a need to look beyond the cloud and see the Son, even in our darkest hour because when we see the Son, the sun will shine again and once again hope will rise up within our souls.

The Challenge

Yeah, it’s a real challenge isn’t it?

That worry, fear syndrome that wraps its icy fingers around our thoughts to pull us under and render us useless in its power.

The mind is our biggest enemy and our front line of battle. If any fear, worry or negative thinking breaks through that front line to consume our thought life it has the power to weaken us.

I’m so thankful our God is far greater than any threat or enemy attack and trusting Him is the only way to counter the mind/worry/negativity battle that wars within.

Trust Him, no matter what’s going down and always pray continually! God knows what He’s doing in this world and in your life.
