Fog Warning

I drove into a fog bank the other morning. In case you’ve never been in one, a fog bank is a dense mass of fog in the middle of clear surrounding air. It is difficult to see and it is difficult for others to see you. It can be a scary situation to be in, especially if visibility is reduced to only a few feet in front of you. It’s almost blinding. The first instinct is to stop but stopping creates a greater hazard. If you stop in the middle of the road in the midst of the fog, your chances of being run over are increased. By all means, do not stop in the midst of the fog. 

The Department of Motor Vehicles suggests that you reduce your speed and turn on your headlights when visibility is reduced.  Some vehicles are even equipped with special fog lights. In essence, it is best to turn on the lights and keep moving forward. 

As you know it, such is life. Sometimes we go about life, mindlessly doing our everyday tasks when suddenly we are blindsided by an unexpected turn of events (fog).  We can’t see and become fearful. It takes our breath away and the first inkling is to stop in the midst of it. BUT….Praise God for the urging of the Holy Spirit. It is usually at this point that we cry out, “Lord! Help me!” or “JESUS!” No matter the phrasing, the call is the key. Even in the midst when we can’t see, HE is there. Even when we are weary, downtrodden and heavy laden, HE is there. Don’t believe me? Imagine going through ANYTHING without HIM! We cannot bear these burdens alone!

Remember, you are not by yourself! You are equipped with that special fog light, the light of Jesus, needed to push you forward, no matter how dense the situation seems. He will carry you through!  

He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and
recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed
(Luke 4:18).

Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
