I have been driving a car for over a year and I'm not really a fan of it. It's a necessity I'm told, but I'd rather walk to places. I don't like speed, hostile drivers and gears, so driving is already minus three points in my book. Plus I'm hopeless with directions.
Anyway, a teaching job came up at a school about 40 mins away from my house. I was invitied to look around, so I got my google map directions and off I set. There were 6 directions on the map, it wasn't a complicated route, but I'd never been to the village before where the school was, so I felt apprehensive.
I'm getting to my point now...Every turn I had to make, every road I had to follow, was put in order on the map for me. If I followed the directions, I would get to the destination. Even though the map would get me there, I felt anxious the whole way.
When I saw the sign for the school, the destination, I felt a prompting inside...it was a challenge to me to trust God along my journey. There are so many times when I know the steps I have to take to have a closer walk with God, but I want to be convinced that I'll be guaranteed to get to the destination before I'm willing to take a single step.
Hope this strikes a chord with someone else too about having the only kind of faith:
"...faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1
I might not be able to see the end of my journey, but the One who made it all can, so thats sufficient for me xxx Praise God for His works, His majesty and His unending grace and mercy xxx
