The FOG Could be in our Own Lives!! BEWARE!

Sitting out on our back porch, early before daybreak, coffee in hand and a throw around my shoulders to keep the chill off, I watched as the silent fog crept across the waters. It started out on the main river, at the base of the mountain, and it crawled into the lagoon by our home.   As I watched, it was so slow I was almost in a daze, as the docks across the way quietly disappeared. It was almost smoky at first, then cloudy, then a heavy mist and then poof, a total whiteout. 

As I looked around, the lightness of the fog began to encircle the very place I was sitting. The screens on the porch were turning to water as it ran down the wires. I noticed it was like I was in the middle of a rain forest with no rain as the dampness surrounded me. The stillness of this moment was overwhelming. I sat so still, afraid to move for fear of breaking the fog, I barely breathed. 

I am not sure how much time passed as I sat there, watching and waiting. It was then I noticed it, the dock across the lagoon was slowly reappearing. It was just as subtle as it disappeared, slow and quietly. As I realized what was happening, the sun cast a light shadow through the trees as the birds started to chirp in them. 

The day had awakened, a new start, a new beginning for everyone.

This reminded me, as I sat there in the stillness, of sin,  of depression, and so many other things going on in lives today. It begins slowly, so quietly, until it completely surrounds our very being and soul. It will completely hide you from the world if we are not careful. It will eat away at you, just as the fog ate away at the docks and houses that disappeared from my sight. 

The only thing we can do when things start creeping into our lives, is give it to God. Be still, listen, let Him be the SON that comes upon your life and push away the fog, sin or depression. 

I know this sounds like an easy thing to do, but it is not easy if you are the one that is covered in the mist and need a friend. Jesus Christ is the lighthouse to guide you out of whatever you are dealing with in your life. He is more than just a friend, He died for you and would do it again. He loves you that much. 

Someone out there needs this blog, I am not sure why God is leading me to write this to you. But you know who you are and you must listen to His call. It is time to let Him shine into your life and let your very own heart start singing to Him. He is waiting on you and He has a plan for your life. Don't stop now, you will miss all the blessings He has for you. 

John 15:13
"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends"

Step out of your own fog and find Jesus. If you need help doing this, please contact me at If you have a praise or make a decision, please comment or let me hear from you so I can pray for you. 

In the meantime, I am praying for YOU!!
