Today is one of those days when I am questioning if what I am doing is the right thing. And, the thing is there seems to be a vague fog circling my mind. SoI prayed and asked the only one with clarity what I should do.
I picked up my phone to read some devotions believing for an answer. It had a forecast from Weatherbug for a place I hadn’t ever set up. It was telling me there is fog in Hurt, Virginia.
Where In The World
Well I do live in Virginia, but I have no idea where Hurt is. Yet the forecast says there will be fog.
Depression set in last week and I recognized my need to be ministered to by a counselor. So I made an appointment with vague understanding of why I was feeling this emotional pain.
But God new the forecast. He knew that where I hurt would be foggy today. He knows right where I am.
So my job is to rest and believe it will all be clear soon.
When the people asked what they could do to work the works of God, His answer was to believe in the One He had sent. (See John 6:29)
So when you don’t know what to do put Faith in the One who will make it all clear very soon.
When Fog Clears
Beloved in wait, let’s rest in that hope today. By the way the forecast for this afternoon is clear and bright. 😉

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.
I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.
Blessings to you and yours,
