Day 6 of Chartering the Unknown

The word today is KNOW.

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. Join me everyday as I chart our progress (in 5 minutes) on the unknown adventure with a known God.

I do NOT KNOW what tomorrow will bring. I do NOT KNOW the plan but thankfully God does know.

I home-school my youngest son Daniel. Sometimes I struggle with teaching him, because he already “knows-it-all”. But then when the test comes, and he fails it, he is humbled to know he still has a lot to learn.

My son’s behaviors usually reflect my own. So I examine my heart to see if I have a “know-it-all” attitude with the great Teacher. I think that is why I struggle so much to not plan anything out. I almost feel like I know what is going to happen. Of course, I am usually wrong but I still play with the thoughts that I already know.

I do know a lot about God’s Word but when I really stop and look deeper I always learn something new. God’s Word is never dull, when you search for it as a treasure.

I am thankful for the time I am having alone with Him today, on a cold and rainy day. I have a lot to learn from my King. I know nothing. I know only that God is good. God is marvelous. He is amazing. He is so wise. He is everything to me, and without Him I am nothing and I know nothing. 🙂

So yeah everyone who keeps asking me, “what do you guys plan to do?”

Or, “where are you guys gonna live or work?”

My humbled response is, “I know nothing.”

    “I know nothing. I only know that God is good.” This so touched me- I wept. If only I could stay right there…all the time. How freeing it is. I purpose to remember this in the days to come.
