Clarity, direction, a clear head and a clear path. That’s what I’ve been praying for lately.
Last week I told a friend that my mind feels foggy and that this is a problem. I want to see farther. I want the whole picture. Sometimes I just want to know it all and get my act together.
But today I actually walked in the fog and learned something new. I could only see what was directly in front of me and around me. Everything else was hidden. Can you see the freedom in that? See how I can notice one leaf, one thread on the spider web, one crack in the sidewalk that I wouldn’t have noticed otherwise?
There is grace in not having everything all at one time, in having some things clouded from view so that all you can see is this one step, now , and then the next.
Maybe this is the way to see more clearly after all.
