Day 7 of Chartering the Unknown

The word today is GO.

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.


Let Go and let God is the motto I live by! There are always things that I have held onto that I constantly need to give up. I know I am not alone. If it is not one thing, it is another.

We put all our stuff in storage while we wait on God’s plan. But before we actually packed up to move, I gave a lot of stuff away. It really was easy to let go of so much stuff because I just felt like I was not going to need it. Then we also threw a lot of stuff away. We kept only the stuff that we felt we were going to need.

Letting go of self is much the same. I have let go of a lot of stuff in my life, but self is the hardest to give away. I gladly got rid of the garbage, and the extra baggage, but I keep the sacred self a little closer to me, just in case I might need “my help”.

I know though when I let go completely of all that I think I am, or better yet all that I think I am not, then God really does get the glory, and I have so much peace in that. So everyday I try to give away a little more of my self to the King, in hopes that He will become more and I will be less and less and less. It is a conscious effort everyday.

Let go of me for more of He.


Daniel (age 10) wanted to participate in today’s challenge too.

Ready.. set ..GO the racer was going so fast that his car had smoke coming out of the tire. Flames coming out of the engine, and the racers eyes were sharp like an eagle eye on its pray going so fast that he was almost in first place passing by all the other racers in about 200 mph he was on the 100 lap out of 200 lap the crowd goes wild as they do the wave all that fans had smiles and they loved the amazing racer.
