clarity in the fog.

this morning, i drove to work in a fog. and not the kind of mental fog that i spend almost every morning in, but a literal fog. it was the kind of fog that was more beautiful than scary as i drove through it, discovering each section of roadway as it revealed itself from the clouds in front of me. and even though i usually prefer sunshiney days, i found myself thanking God for the fog this morning.

because some days its good to have a reminder that even though we can't always see the way in front of us, God can. and He will show us exactly how far ahead we need to see to keep moving forward. no more, and no less. the whole plan is out there, just waiting for us to discover it as piece by piece it is revealed. some days the fog might be as thick as pea soup, or even like peanut butter, and those are the days on which we rely most heavily on God, trusting that he knows what he's doing.

may we learn to cling to Christ as if we are in the midst of peanut-butter-thick fog, even on the clear days.
