I was sitting outside in Colorado in early March. The best thing about visiting Colorado in March is you get the benefit of abundant snow for skiing combined with slightly warmer weather. If you catch a sunny day, as I did on this particular afternoon, you can sit outside, absorbing the strong sunshine and feel like you are at the beach (with a few more articles of clothing on). After a long winter, don’t we all need a little time in the sun?
I was reading on the front porch and went inside to get something. As I walked into the dark house, I could hardly see. The combination of the snow and the bright sunshine made my eyes extremely blurry as I transitioned inside. I walked down the stairs holding onto the railing so I wouldn’t trip. My vision was foggy I could barely see the steps.
This reminds me of our faith journey. In life, we can’t always see what’s right in front of us. We can be blinded by distractions or sin. Our pace of life can move so rapidly we can’t even look where we are going. Our vision can be unclear, and our path hazy.
The longer I was in the house, the more my eyes adjusted to the lighting, and my vision returned. Similarly, the more and more we seek God through prayer and Scripture, the more vivid our vision becomes.
The more we turn to Him, the clearer our path appears. The sooner we can see what He has for us, the better. His plans are great, His way is right, His love for us is never-ending.
“In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:6)
Don’t remain in the fog. Step into His house so He can bring clarity to your life.
