As Mia and the other bohemians are about to be served a fog creeps in. The fog is the enemy who fills each of their minds with lies about their ineffectiveness in life. In their minds they are alone. Though the rooftop is full of people each sees nothing in the fog except themself; they are alone. This is how Satan works in our lives, he makes us think we are alone and God is not with us. When we accept his lies we walk around in a fog wallowing in our wounds of sorrow and defeat. Mia through Iona’s prompting stands and verbally denounces the enemy and her wounds are filled with light. The others join her and through the light of their wounds that God has healed then the fog dissipates.
Allen Arnold in “the story of WITH: A Better Way to Live, Love & Create” says, “What clears the fog is fellowship with God and others. And remembering who we are. We do that by proclaiming our identity as His sons and daughters. And sharing our stories with others.”
God moved me from fiction writer to personal experience stories. Whenever He prompts me to tell my story in a devotional, verbally, or in an article He enables me to show His glory to others. Many times I don’t want to tell the story but through telling it helps me to scratch out Satan’s lies. Then for others my story encourages and strengthens them.

2 thoughts on “Fog”
The fog is such an apt metaphor for what happens in our thoughts when we allow the enemy to take up residence in our minds. We can’t focus on important things, we neglect loved ones around us, we stop seeing the possibilities of goodness. Standing strong WITH Christ — the One Who calmed the storm — the One Who blows away the fog — shows us the way to walk.
Eileen, I loved this chapter too for the same reasons.
