Through the Fog

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised.  Hebrews 10:36

I had an appointment at UCSF this morning that required me to be up and on the road to The City hours before the sun came up. I had no idea what the weather would be like today as I sped towards South San Francisco. Hours later, I emerged back outside to fog so thick I could barely see the parking garage across the street. Considering we’re famous for our fog, no surprise there!

As I drove home I reflected on how the last two years have been a bit of a fog. We’re doing our best to follow God’s plan, but man is it hard when we have to squint to see two feet in front of us! Much like our season of confusion, the fog went on and on; over the Bay Bridge, past Oakland and Berkeley, completely socked in. Suddenly, as I climbed the hill to the Caldecott tunnel, the sun broke through in a dazzling way. All the pink houses looking down on the Bay from Mount Grizzly were bathed in light. There was no indication it was coming, just BAM! Let there be light!

Blinded, and realizing I forgot my sunglasses, my heart lifted as I recognized something else – this is how our sunny day will come. One day the fog will just lift and we’ll finally know, KNOW just what it is God has in store for us. In the mean time, we drive on carefully through the fog, praying for direction, knowing God’s in control.
