Finding Your Way Through the Fog

Let God be your guiding light

by Joanne Troppello


Recently when I checked the weather forecast, they called for freezing fog in our area the next day. I’ve heard of freezing rain, but I’ve never heard of freezing fog before. When I checked out what freezing fog meant, I learned that it simply means dense fog when the temperatures are below the freezing point of 32 degrees F.


The next morning, I opened the blinds on the kitchen window and saw very dense fog, which lasted all day long into the evening. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen the photo collage I took of ten different shots of the view of the sky from my deck.



So, I just had to take a photo of this fog since it was very dense and looked beautiful to me. Seeing the dense fog covering the field by our back yard, resonated with me in a powerful way.



I added text—trust God to guide you even when you can’t see the path in front of you—to the photo and also posted this photo on my social media accounts. This is how I truly feel right now, like I’m in a fog. Everything that has happened during 2020 with the coronavirus, unrest, and voter fraud—in addition to what my husband and I had already been going through—makes me feel like I’m in a fog.


I am trusting God each day. Yet, now more than ever, trusting God to guide my path when I cannot see the next step in front of me is so true and powerful because sometimes, I feel like I literally don’t know what to do besides continuing to work hard and pray.


There are so many verses in the Bible that speak about light. However, this one truly touches my heart; especially now.


“Your Word is a lamp for my feet, and a light on my path.” – Psalm 119:105 (NKJV)

This year has drawn me closer to the Lord and brought my husband and I closer together as well. I pray that this extremely difficult year of 2020 for everyone will draw people to the Lord.


I am continuing to pray for revival across the globe. I believe revival is coming. You can read more about my thoughts on revival in this article I wrote in October.


Have you been dealing with stress and anxiety? I pray that God’s peace covers you from the top of your head to the souls of your feet and that you are comforted by the embrace of the Holy Spirit.
