Fog – The “Soup”
Fog isn’t usually a thing of beauty.
When I think of fog, I think of the dense “soup” that hangs in the cool air that you can’t see through. It feels cold and clammy. No matter how bright your car’s headlights are, you still can’t see. The fog swirls and dips. Maybe there will be a hole on one side and vision goes just a bit farther, but not for long before it fills in.
I don’t live on the ocean, but I imagine the fog banks rolling in and then the cliff in front of you disappears. Don’t go for a walk. Listen for the fog horns out there somewhere, warning ships and others of impending unseen dangers. Ok, so that’s in the past, now there are electronic gadgets to do that more safely. Work with me, here.
Remember Jack the Ripper? In the movies, you always see dark, foggy London streets before you hear about the dastardly deeds he did. Come to think of it, he’s never been identified, has he? Do you suppose his spirit still haunts the streets?
Early Morning Fog
But some mornings, I get to rush out of the house to see the sun’s rays shimmering through a light fog. I can’t help it, I have to try to capture the beauty. Just as the sunrays that shine out of a sunset reminds me of the throne room of God, the radiant infusion through the fog in the morning does as well.
It reminds me that no matter the turmoil we live through on earth, God is still on His throne.
He offers peace in the midst of the chaos.
In the hush of a glowing light mist, let Him whisper to your spirit. Feel the grace He offers and allow it to flow in you from head to foot—in every part just as the fog fills every available air particle. Let His Son caress your face and breathe in His freshness as the breeze softly lifts your hair.
Watching the shimmering rays in the early morning is a good time to reflect on the many blessings God gives. A new day to choose to see Him in all that comes.
Especially in days when confusion or pain are expected to be the order of the day. He is able to keep that which we have entrusted to Him safe. Always.
A reminder of His faithfulness is visually before us.
Forget not His many blessings.
