"The Prophet Jeremiah said to them, 'very well: I am going to pray to the Lord your God as you request, and whatever the Lord answers you I will tell you; I will keep nothing back from you.'" Jeremiah 42:4

Yesterday we visited my dad. If you read my blog regularly, you know he has been blessed with Alzheimers and the journey is not a pretty one. He is doing fairly well right now and seems content with his existence despite the FOG he lives in on a daily basis.

Have you ever felt like you were lost in a fog of confusion? Thankfully God comes to the rescue and the path we needed to take was usually right there in front of us; this works unless we were thrashing around trying to do our own thing instead of being patient... you would find me out in left field. The journey back would be harder only because I made it harder.

My dad will stay in his protective fog. The lessons to be learned are obviously for all of us that love him and our path is still not clear. One day it will be clear to my mom, my self and my two brothers. This will be the AHA moment we all wait for. The enlightenment of what is good. Depsite our limited thinking there is good right now and it is in front of us, but the fog lingers yet and the pain of loss is still fresh. Stepping back is hard to do, but it must be done to allow God to work with His divine touch.

Take a deep breath this morning and then release it with JOY. His touch is all around you in your fog of indecision and incompleteness. Only He can complete your life and lift the fog.

Give thanks for God's gift of new opportunities.


“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:5-8
