"For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known." 1 Corinthians 13:12 (New American Standard Bible)

Is fog in your part of the world today? The fog settled in last evening, as a warning of the morning that was to come. The reverse of that is also true. In 1 Corinthians we read that, now we see dimly. But, when we see him face to face along the road of life, in a quiet garden, or in Glory at the time our soul returns to God, we will see him clearly and know fully the secrets of the Kingdom of which he taught while he was here. Don’t be afraid of the fog you see now. The fog is just the clouds of Heaven dipping low enough for us to see them. When we walk or drive in the fog, we watch for signposts: center line stripes, known landmarks, and tail lights up ahead.

• The center line tells us where the boundaries are, much like the Bible keeps us on the safe track.

• The trees and building are our landmarks along the way and are similar to the blessed people who are our Spiritual leaders and mentors.

• The tail light of the driver in front of us, warning us to slow down or stop before we can even see the danger, are like the testimonies and stories of the faithful who have made mistakes and then turn back to God. The challenge is to learn from another’s mistakes, because we often don’t believe it could possibly happen to us. The wise one, observes and learns from others.

Embrace the fog that the Lord God gives us, to teach us that the truth of Him is within the dense cloud. We must believe and follow the Lord into the unknown if we are to find Him and His truth. Let us pray:

"Oh Father in the fog and darkness of my life, I reach out my hand to you. You are my light in the darkness, the whisper in the shadows and the sweet aroma and perfume of your presence. Holy are you, Father and your son Jesus Christ. May this be the day that I stop avoiding the fog of life. May I run to you within the darkness . . . and find you more clearly there. In the name of Jesus, your son and my redeemer, I pray. Amen"

"God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine."
