Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God. ~Isaiah 50:10b
Do you ever have those moments when you feel far from God? Or like there’s something standing between you and him? I’m in one of those fogs right now. I do my quiet time, and it’s like nothing gets through, or at least very little. Those aha moments when his word is crystal clear are a distant memory.
I have learned that sometimes these moments are simply due to my feelings. God is as close as he ever was, and I just need to wait out the fog because it is not reality. Other times, they are due to my moving inch by inch away till I begin to feel the strain in our relationship. Then others are that God moved and is waiting on me to notice and follow.
I think this time the cause of my fog is a little of the first and a lot of the last. I have been in a fog for a few weeks, Jeremy can attest to that! But, due to my Bible opening to Isaiah 50:4-11 every morning, I think God is waiting for me to follow him, too.
So here I am, following. Running back toward him, so I can see clearly again.
