How Far Can You See?


The other day I woke up to a dense layer of fog. Visibility was near zero. You could not see very far at all. I thought about times in my life when I was severely depressed...after my divorce...after resigning from my job that I had held for 20 years...even a time when I moved from Oklahoma to Tennessee. It was as if this heavy layer of fog was over my life and I was unable to see anything but the pain that was surrounding me. You may be in such a place or know someone who is. When you are in such a place there seems to be nothing that you can do to get out of it. There are no words to comfort you and no activities to motivate you. All this crossed my mind as a stared out the window.
Suddenly, a small glow of light surfaced on the horizon. It was faint and seemed very distant but I could not stop watching it. In just a matter of minutes it rose higher and shown brighter. In less than an hour it was bright orange. And all of the fog had disappeared!
God taught me something that day. He enlightened me with some divine revelation. If I would lift up the SON, He would burn away the fog! The more of the Son I allow into my life the less I have to deal with depression, discouragement and temptation. On a clear day you can see forever! The Son always makes the day brighter.
If you are in a foggy place today, lift up the name of the Lord and let the Son shine on your life. He will carry your burdens for you and help you see clearly again. And who the Son sets free is free indeed!
