The fog

The other morning I woke up and it was a really foggy morning. I thought about the fog. What is it really? A thick cloud settling on us. That's what it is. I had been sick all week and decided to simply just get out of the house. I didn't even know where I was going. Just somewhere besides the house. Then I saw the fog at the bridge. I had my new camera with me and decided to go take a picture or two. The fog was all under the bridge and was something to see. Different pressures and different temperatures in the atmosphere are things that cause a fog. The thing about a fog is that it is hazardous. It's way easier to crash into something in a fog because you cant see clearly. You have to be careful and aware of what is going on around you, and use the right light. I guess there isn't much else you can do but wait it out.
Sometimes after the holidays a fog settles over people much like this one. I don't really understand what that's all about. I am sure a psychologist could explain it. I am also sure just like on a foggy day, different pressures on us add to a fog settling in. I know what it seems like to be in a fog. You seem to be just aimlessly going about from one thing to another, trying to get through a day and get done what you are suppose to get done. You are pushing through the haze and sure are wanting some light. You have to watch out. You have to be careful. Sometimes in a fog things can get in your way, and trip you up. The thing about this fog though, is there is something you can do to help it along. Again you have to have the right light. Jesus said "I am the light of the world." His word "is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." There is a way to clear up this fog. I have seen it happen time and time again. Get yourself into Gods' word. Find yourself a scripture that speaks to you. If you haven't found one yet, like the one I have memorized recently, {Luke 1:45 - Blessed is she who believes that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished"}, then keep looking - there is one there for you. More than one actually. Seek and you will find. That really is what lifts the fog; the seeking and finding of His word. It is great to experience the refreshment the word of God brings. But don't be discouraged if you open the word and don't find it right away. Keep at it. It will come. The fog will lift. There are brighter days ahead.

I know I am crazy commenting on my own blog, but just a few minutes ago I was looking at what a little light does to the clouds! The most beautiful colors were shining right through them, neat thought!
