Hope is what keeps us on the path.

I took this picture a few weeks ago at our cabin. I was out for a walk and the hazy atmosphere gave me such a sense of peace.

When I look at this picture I thought of how often we have to walk by faith not by sight because the road ahead looks hazy. How often we have to cling to hope.

But when the road ahead is hazy, we can rest assured that God’s vision for us is clear. He reaches out to us through the haze and offers His hand. Our response?

Take it.

Eventually, the fog lifts and the path becomes clear.

I would say that for the past two months my husband and I feel like we are walking through that fog and certainly the path has not become clear.

As I told you before, a bad storm came through our area in August and really played havoc with our yard. We had to have a number of trees removed. The tree removal service decimated our yard and won’t do anything to repair it.

In the meantime, we have a driveway to be repaired in a number of places. Most of the lawn (it’s a big lawn) has to to be completely rototilled and reseeded. Needless to say, none of this is cheap.

We both feel like saying, “Hey, God. What’s up with all this?”

Eventually, we will see the good in all this and how God is growing us through this process. Until then, we take hold of His offered hand, and trust Him to guide us to the right people and the right resources.

Don’t be afraid to trust God. He knows the haze you are walking through.As always, He is ahead of you on this “foggy” journey and you’ll come through it.

Things will seem very unsettled for awhile. The path ahead may be fraught with detours. Hope is what helps us keep putting one foot in front of the other when the detours seem to be unending.

God bless and I hope it’s a great day for you.
