Having a Foggy Day?

Foggy days occur often here in Houston. While the fog clouds the vision, driving can be hazardous. Stress mounts as we face the unforeseen and anticipating what looms ahead is a challenge. 

Accidents happen. The unexpected disaster hits us faster than a Kentucky Derby racehorse at the finish line. 

Once the fog lifts, and sun comes out, relief floods the driver. Hope to finish the course returns.

What if you lived with a mental fog every day with no hope for the sunshine to lift your spirits?   You can't see what's ahead and anxiety lives in your heart? Many people live in a daily fog of fear. They expect disaster at any minute. I've known several men and women who can't smile or enjoy life. Depression is constant. My heart breaks for them.  For some of these folks, the dark day never ends.

Most of us will have foggy times in our lives, but those periods are temporary.

If the dreary days are constant for you. Seek assistance. God gives Christian professionals the gift of helps. And..........never forget to trust the God who created you to see you through the dreary days.

If you're in a bad situation, remember God changes things. 

Many think this phrase is a Bible verse. It isn't, but it is a theme in Scripture. A poet wrote it in the 13th century, and Abraham Lincoln once quoted it. 

Whatever you face today, I pray this Scripture for you.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  -Romans 15:13  

And remember whatever it is, "this too shall pass."
