Sunday Stillness – How to Be Content in the Fog
God does not tell you what He is going to do – He reveals to you Who He is (Oswald Chambers, January 2).
I wrote in my journal on Friday a question to God. The answer came in my morning reading. My question: “Can I please see clearly, Lord”. You can read more of this exchange with God at Under the Cover of Prayer.
What I did learn was:
Don’t ask the fog to lift. Trust Jesus in the fog. (click to Tweet)
Seek His face alone.
Learn from Jesus while you are in the fog. (click to Tweet)
Today is Sunday Stillness.
Do you have a Scripture that spoke to you this week? Please link below. If you post to Twitter use #sundaystillness and @authorjaniscox.

I would love it if you would subscribe to my blog. See the sidebar to enter your email address. And Subscribe to my new Newsletter. That would be great.
Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.
I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.

Missional Women – Faith Filled Fridays
There’s a little pond in the meadow behind my house, where the morning mist lifts in hazy contours from the earth. How can something so lovely seem just the opposite, simply because we’re in it?
Driving, living… Fog tends to lose its mysterious wonder. It’s no longer a sight to behold, but a hindrance to the sight we hold so dear .
Thankfully, faith puts that beauty and wonder back in the fog! Your words, Janis, are such an encouraging reminder.
This was very encouraging for me today – thank you for sharing it! Today was our pastor’s last day at our church, so there is much that is “foggy” in the days ahead as we all transition. It’s good to know that God is in control and sees what we cannot.
And I’m so glad He’s under control. That’s all I can count on, forever and ever. Thank you.
He certainly is in control unless we try to wrestle it from Him. And He will let us do that. So I would rather sit back and give Him the reins.
Yes indeed – such a caring answer ,,, learning to trust that He’s beside me and leading the way.
Have you ever noticed that when you drive in the fog you need to rely even more on your headlights? Isn’t it just the same way in life?
When life gets foggy, that’s when we have to follow, even closer, The Light.
Good analogy Sharon – He is our Light and that is the way to see through the fog.. Keeping our eyes focuses on HIm
Yes! May we remember there is not a thing that occurs in our lives which will take God by surprise. Have a blessed Sunday!
Right – nothing takes God by surprise. But He can sure surprise us.
Praise God that He leads even in the fog, one step at a time, on a need-to-know basis. Thanks as always for the beautiful post & for hosting.
I think the “need to know” is a good statement. When He wants me to know He will show me.
Yes and amen! ‘Cause God is in control!
