Hi there, Sherry Kyle here, writing from my laptop in Central California.
Do you experience fog where you live? This morning as I drove my youngest daughter to the bus stop I could barely see thirty feet in front of me. When I returned home, I grabbed my cell phone and snapped these pictures.
I thought about how fog resembled the writing life. It takes a step of faith to keep pouring our hearts on the page. Some days it feels as if we're typing through fog.
God will make a way,
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way,
He will make a way.
How does God make a way for us when we can’t see the big picture?
Isaiah 43:19 says,
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
How does God make a way for us when it feels as if we’re drowning?
Isaiah 43:16 says,
This is what the LORD says—he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters.
How does God make a way for us when we’re tempted?
1 Corinthians 10:13 says,
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
The fog lifts when we turn to His word.
Psalm 119: 105 says,
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
