A Table Prepared for Me
Sometimes my mind feels so thick and slow, it is like driving into a dense fog bank. I feel isolated from myself and others by my inability to think clearly. I feel trapped and alone inside my noisy mind.
Somehow, I also have come to appreciate these times of foggy isolation. God opens my eyes to see that he is with me in the fog, inviting me to sit at a table he has prepared for me. And sometimes, those times of isolation and confusion are transformed into moments of intimacy and comfort.
I know deep down that Jesus is with me in times like these. Even as I write this, I feel a little choked up and I have some tears forming in my eyes. Jesus has a table prepared here in the midst of my foggy confusion. He is inviting me to be with him and talk with him about my feelings. And although everything doesn’t magically fix itself, I feel safe and seen by God, and that is what I need right now.
It is okay to feel confused and lost, Jesus is with us, even at this very moment.
