Day 2 of Chartering the Unknown

The word today is VIEW.

I am participating in a 31 day challenge to bloggers everywhere to write for five minutes everyday in October. This challenge was issued by Kate Motaung’s link up.

Today we finished moving out. We now have a better view on the plan.

But probably not the way you would imagine. You might think we have an idea of what we are going to do. NOPE! Nothing like that. We still can not view land from this ship.

Seriously we feel like we are explorers on the ship of Christopher Columbus’s Mayflower. Imagine for a second being on his ship, absolutely sure of finding China, only to find America. But for weeks, and maybe months just out on the ocean and nothing to view except the sky above and the water beneath. Though a pretty site, I am sure, the view is not what you had in mind.

We dream of crossing over to the Promised Land, and all we see is water.

However, the plan is still on course, because we are trusting the Lord.

For your ways are in full view of the Lord, and he examines all your paths (Proverbs 5:21).

The way we see it is, He has opened up a door for us to stay with a friend. This is a door to view the plan from a distance. This is an opportunity for us to get out our binoculars, and turn our focus on Him; not looking to the left or the right, just straight ahead.

Many are the plans of a man’s heart, but the Lord directs his steps.
