Rest and Abide the Father says. With COVID it can be hard at times to find rest, and things may seem somewhat confusing. It is easy to feel foggy and the sense of not knowing what is happening in a world.
A world that can seem uncertain and hard to gain clarity.
I remember driving home a few nights ago, was driving through a lot of fog on the road and suddenly I had this thought that fog is beautiful. However, as I was driving through the fog I felt as though I could trust - I know that the road is still going to be there on the other side of the fog.
I decided that I would continue to trust, not having to stop and wait for the fog to clear; even if it was quite thick and uncertain for some reason, I still kept driving. This made me realise that this is a lot like life trusting and being faithful that the road is still there and that you are still following the road even though you cannot see what is ahead.
I can see what is in front of me, I can see that the road is straight and when the curve comes, I just follow the lines and the lights; but I cannot see far ahead and that is when I freak out. I am realising that that is how life can be right now, yes it has been foggy. Yes, it can be uncertain, and I feel a little bit shaken because I feel like I cannot predict what is happening.
However, the fog is beautiful, and I can just continue to trust. Fog does not have to be scary because it is uncertain. Fog is beautiful. Midst and fog on the road is actually really beautiful because it is creation and is from God. Therefore, the fogginess that I have been feeling does not have to be scary.
I can trust that in an uncertain world that God is always certain. That He always knows what is going to happen and He is a Father of love. Once again, I remind myself that I can trust the Father; I can rest and abide in Him and with that a sigh of relief, peace comes over me.
