Misty Mountain Mornings

I have swept away your sins like the morning mists. I have scattered your offenses like the clouds. Oh, return to me, for I have paid the price to set you free. Isaiah 44: 22

A thick mist often descends upon the mountains in the early morning, making it difficult to see beyond the smokey haze. When outside it can make one feel a little disoriented at times, almost causing you to feel imprisoned and unable to escape its suffocating effect. I'm always relieved to see the mist fade away and to be able to see the beautiful scenery again.

Sin is like a thick hazy mist. When trapped by sinful habits that hold us in bondage, we can feel suffocated, unable to see beyond where we are. Thankfully, we have a Heavenly Father who sets us free. It's comforting to know He sweeps our sins away like the morning mist! No sin is too big for God to sweep away. All we need to do is call upon Him and seek forgiveness.

Its fascinating how the everyday things in nature, that we often take for granted, allow us to see scripture so clearly and provide us with a visual reminder of God's promises. I'm thankful for the blessing of misty mountain mornings, and the reminder that just as that mist dissipates giving way to the beautiful scenery, God likewise sweeps away our sins and sets us free.
