It’s really foggy in the Atlanta area today. I could not see very far down the road this morning after leaving the house. I had no idea what was ahead of me . . . a slow driver, stalled car, or someone crossing the road. I drove slower than normal. I was more alert than normal. My eyes and mind were focused on driving as safely as possible.

When the fog settles around you, life can get a little confusing. I remember going on a fishing trip with my dad and uncles as a teenager. We had been fishing all night. We had dropped one anchor and the boat had made several turns throughout the night. By morning, a thick fog had settled on the lake. We could not see more than 10 feet in any direction. We had no idea which way to go to get back to the truck. We fired up the motor and slowly headed out . . . in the wrong direction!

Life will get foggy. During those times it’s easy to get turned around and head in the wrong direction. When the fog settles around you and you’re not sure what to do, remember these simple words:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take” (Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT).

Trust and obey God when the fog settles around you. It will lift soon enough.
