This morning I walked out into my favorite kind of day - the clouds had sunk down low to obscure my way.
The air, though cool, was not that icy cold pinching my face, and every step revealed the unknown, brought me into a brand new place.
What lay ahead was hidden in soft misty layers of white, where I'd just come from disappeared out of sight.
There was only the small clear space just around me, and in this moment I was
content to just 'be'.
It made me think of my life before I met you - I couldn't see where to go, or make sense of where I’d been - I just knew that everything I tried came to naught, so much that I'd wondered if it was worth it to try again.
I remember wondering in my mind 'Is this all there is to be?' - and one day I got an answer - 'not at all, child, if you'll only let Me.'
I'll never forget that moment I said 'yes' to Him, for at that instant the changes began within.
Jesus put off my 'old' and gave me 'brand new' - it would change how I saw things, I chose different things to do.
The dense fog in my life had lifted, no more dark and despair - now the white mist invited to come see what was there.
Now I had hope and faith, and joy in following His path for me, looking forward each day to see where I would be.
Each day I learned more, Jesus was setting me free, for He had new plans that only He could see - for when the time was right, He made my cherished dream come true, for that was the shining day that I first met you.
Now these misty mornings mean new adventure to explore, and I know they'll hold joy for I share them with the husband I adore.
I thank God for the mist that obscures the view, for in this shining moment I
am filled with my love for you - for of all the gifts and blessing that fill my life anew, the best one of all is the gift God gave me in you.
"...for He had new plans that only He could see." This is the second time this morning that the Lord has pointed out to me that He is fully aware of what lies ahead for me, though I have no idea what is in store for my tomorrows and spend far too much time worried about it. When we finally throw our hands up in the air and say "Okay! Okay! I am content with just walking in the Light on the path directly in front of me," it doesn't mean that the future isn't still obscured to us. But we can rest in knowing that LOVE will lead us through whatever happens to be around the corner. Oh, how I hope I learn this one soon. It's a tiring lesson to learn.
