A Foggy Day
. . . Or Year?
I was driving home the other day & it was foggy. You’ve heard of pea soup? Yeah, like that. Only, thankfully, not green. Yuck!
I couldn’t see more than about 25 feet in front of my car. Of all driving conditions, I dislike fog the most. I hate the sensation of not knowing what’s ahead. But having to drive slowly, switching back & forth between high beam, low beam, & fog lights made me think. About what, you ask. Here it is:
Fog is defined as: a cloud which is touching the ground, formed when temperature conditions are right, from air that is very dense with moisture.
Okey dokey . . . what’s that got to do with the spiritual?
God doesn’t show us what’s down the road, does He? Honestly, it’d probably freak me out if I could see more than a step or two.
One thing I discovered as I was driving slowly through that pea-soup fog: my high beam lights were useless. My low beam lights gave me a much clearer view of what was right in front of my car.
God desires me to trust Him with what’s ahead in 2024 and beyond, no matter what it is, no matter where it leads. He calls me to stop trying to see farther down the road than He knows is good for me. Because He is already there.
I’ll leave you with a quote from Mr. Oswald Chambers:
“What an impertinence worry is!”
Let’s think on that for a bit.
