Recently, I had a three-hour night drive, mostly in the fog and rain. I felt uncomfortable; it was hard to see, but I wasn’t afraid. Every break in the fog felt like a sigh of relief.
My life has been foggy lately. There have been tears like rain. I have wondered where is God? What is his plan? Can I really believe all the promises from the Bible or am I just delusional? What is the truth? Why would allow me to suffer like this?
I compare this part of my life to driving in the fog, because although the road is not clear, I know my ultimate destination, and I look forward to getting there. During these dark and stormy days, I feel anxious to be on the other side. There is no way around it, but I am not alone. I know God is with me. Even though I cannot see clearly.
In the darkest part of the night, the light shines, if ever so dim. So, I give thanks for what I have. I have food, clothing, shelter, health, financial stability. I feel hope. I praise God for the blessing that are coming, but it doesn’t necessarily take the pain of this experience away.
“Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4
If you are going through a tough time like me. If doubt has crept in, know this is temporary. Trust that God is working in this situation, but I feel your pain. Let me pray with you.
Dear God, Life-giving Father, I praise your Holy Name. Thank you for the blessings that you have poured out on me. Thank you for the answered prayers. Abba, my comforter, I am in distress; please give me Your peace that surpasses all understanding. I cannot figure out your plan. I don’t know what to do. I need help. I need to feel your love. I need to be held and comforted. Please God, show me the way. Lift the fog, so I can see clearly. Dry my tears and turn my sadness in to joy and laughter. In Jesus name, Amen
