noun sea·cliff \si:ˈklif\
: steep to vertical or overhanging rock slope at the coast
I have been on the edge in a lot of places. A cliff in San Francisco looking out at the bay. A mountain in the Sierra Nevadas looking over Lake Tahoe. A sea cliff in Nor Cal looking at the vast Pacific. There is something about being that high up that makes you feel a little bit closer to heaven. I have been to places like this many times and one thing I know that can change the whole perspective of the hike up and the view is the weather. Clear days are prime, but when it is windy, foggy, or stormy the view from that high up can't be seen.
The "God thought" on all of this is having the faith to climb up even when you can not see...or the end result isn't always perfectly pretty or clear. We have to hold onto the days that are clear when it all makes sense, when we can feel his presence and provision. So WHEN (not if) but when the stormy and foggy days come we can look back on the clear days of provision and know that our God is faithful.
Lord, this world can be messy, when my eyes can not see the next step ahead help me through the fog help me to trust that you will get me to the top of the mountain a little closer to you through it all.
