As I looked out the window this morning, I was taken aback by the beauty of the thick fog blanketing the lake. Looking from the window, I felt a sense of calm. Then I wondered if anyone dared to go out on their boat today. It's not unusual to see boats in all kinds of weather, some even get caught in the worst of storms. Is the water rough today? It is hard to tell because of the fog. By mid-morning the sun was peeking through and I could see the lake was like glass. I looked again and it was hazy. What a difference a few hours or even a few minutes makes... what a difference perspective makes. The past few days have been a little crazy with a heavy plate of responsibilities compounded by a move to a new home and Christmas coming. Just when I think I've got it all under control, something changes and I have to adjust. Some of the changes mean one less thing to worry about but some of them bring a flood of uncertainty. The Psalmists words bring me back to the truth that is always present know matter what is going on: "Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress." Psalm 46: 10-11. So this is what I'm sure of... sooner or later the fog will lift. I may not be able to see what's around the corner now, but God can. I much prefer to see what's in front of me, but that's not always possible.
If I stay focused on him, I can walk on water whether it's foggy or clear. I hope this blesses you today!
