What to do when you get trapped in the fog

“In my distress I called upon the LORD, Yes, I cried to my God; And from His temple He heard my voice, And my cry for help came into His ears”.   2 Samuel 22:7-New American Standard

By Bobby R. Henry, Sr.

      This morning we awoke to a thick fog. Even though it was difficult for us to see, Interstate 27 just 10 miles west of us here in Ft. Lauderdale, had to be shut down in all directions do to such a heavy fog.

     If you have never been in a real heavy fog, it might be difficult for you to envision things going on around and you can’t see, unlike being in the dark where you can see period.

     The fog is an eerie thing. You can see something and yet, you can’t see anything. It’s as if white clouds have descended on earth, swallowing up the whole world while you’re just there groping for the sounds you hear and the presence of something…

     You can feel the clammiest sensation creep all over up.

     I equated being in the fog like wondering in sin.

     Lost and alone, but others were there all the time. You could feel them but because of the sensations, you didn’t won’t to reach out to them for fear of them pulling you in from the fog.

     Sin is a lot like being in a fog; it’s difficult to see, your feelings are masked by surreal experiences that always leave you wanting more and the only others who seem to be enjoying more are the ones in sin with you.

     Once the sun has burned the fog away, life springs forth like a brand new day. So to it is as when the Son has come into the life of the sinner and begins to shine its wonder.

     Fog can be a myriad of effects that prevent you from walking in the Light.

     How amazing it is for fog to swiftly change into something funky and once left in the fog, you can become lost in space.

     It really is okay to defog often. It is not harmful, but it can be habit forming and contagious.

     Maybe we should come up with a slogan: “Please beware I’m a defogger and I practice often”, or  “Please follow me; I’m not in the fog”.

     I really like this one, “Yeah though I walk through the valley of fog I fear not because I don’t live there”.

     I know the fog evaporator-the Son!

     “When you’re in a fog call on the Son He will turn fog into a ray of hope that will be your bridge to carry you over trouble waters into greener pastures. He repairs our essence and honesty are the guide posts along His pathways. In the Son there is no fear and no wickedness. His training and leadership reassure us and there is always enough of His blessings to make our needs complete and never leave us wanting. His ever presence is our  help in the time of need, safety and abundance surrounds us as we have our home in the House of our Lord. The LORD is surely my shepherd and I shall not want.

     “In all things Dear God You are our way out”!
