One day this past week it was incredibly foggy outside.
As Mr. Free and I drove to the gym at 5:40 a.m. we could barely see 30 ft in front of us.
It was scary, as things right in front of us would appear out of nowhere suddenly.
The fog was that thick.

However, we could see directly in front of us, so as long as we were cautious to our current surroundings, we were fine.

This is just like how my life is right now, I thought.

See, sometimes God gives us a clear view of the path in front of us.
We see exactly where He is leading and where He is wanting to take us.
But, there are times where we can't see that path.
Sometimes God makes our path foggy and that is where we have to solely rely on Him.

This is exactly where I am at in life.

I can't see the next turn in the road.
I can't see whether life is turning into a peak or a valley.
I can just see where I am at, and the step right in front of me.

Just as our cars headlights illuminated the next few feet ahead, God is showing me just enough of the path to take the next step.
I have no idea the future for me and Mr. Free, as God currently has our path in a fog.
But through this fog, I am learning to trust.

It is easy to have faith when we have a crystal clear view of the future, but you have to trust when the next steps are unseen.

My God is a good God, and the path He has for us is for His glory and our good.

Reading His Word is also how He gives illumination to the path that He has for us.
Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a guide unto my path.
Psalm 119:105

I pray that whether your path is clear or foggy, that you are learning to trust God and His path for your life, like He is doing with me.


  1. I LOVE this post! thank you for sharing. :)

  2. Thanks for this post! I love it! This is how I felt when we made the decision to move back home. He took us in the right path and had it not been "foggy" at first I probably wouldn't have been as vigilent. Thanks again!

  3. Such a great way to word it :) I was trying to explain to DH the other day, that the times in my life where things are really about to change are the times where I have a hard time envisioning the future. Learning to trust is so hard, but it always turns out amazing!


I love comments! Thanks for leaving me one! I read each and everyone one! xoxo Jenny Free
