If this is autobiographical, my heart breaks for you. About 15 years ago I found myself in your situation and I wrote a poem called "Shelf Life," which revealed the angst and disappointment I felt while my body was giving away due to chronic pain from a head-on collision in which I was involved many years ago. I asked God to use me in spite of my illness and soon one amazing opportunity after another appeared. I suspect you've prayed that prayer many times, but I encourage you to keep reaching out, and when one door finally closes, ask God to open another one. God hears your heart cry in this honest baring of your soul. I'll be praying.
I love the hint of peace God sent to you as described in the final paragraph and pray God reveals Himself and His love to you in many different ways.
I love the mental image of reaching toward faith but unable to grasp it. As someone going on 30 years of chronic illness and extreme pain, my heart aches. The cool thing is fog is one way. It may be hard for us to see God at times, yet, he always sees us. That hope is sprinkled throughout. Your ending is full of hope (something I often considered a four-letter-word, yet your words and God's love changes all of that). This has a clear Christian message and it's one that way too many need to hear. Outstanding job.

Thank you for the picture of momentary peace.
