Day 9 of Chartering the Unknown

The word today is JOIN.

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 urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me” (Romans 15:13).

Today was one of those days where uncertainty knocked on my door, and I let it come in. I allowed the thoughts of insecurity to rob me of the peace that was mine. So far I have had incredible faith in this move. I have joined with my husband in the adventure, but there are times like today that I feel I could really save us the struggle by fixing the problems that we find ourselves in. It is then that I feel insecure when I have to let go of the reigns of control to join God in His uncomprehending plan.

Wow it is tough, scary and downright crazy to me. I mean seriously, you would just have to know me to know how hard this is for me. I am strong. I am a survivor and I know this. I have always made it on my own. I have always been the type of person who calls the shots and now I am not. I am weak so I can join in His strength. I am dependent on His Mighty hand and not my own anymore.

Now as a married woman to a man I highly respect, I join in agreement to his plan. I really believe that God is the one moving us through him, but my faith needs to join with your faith to keep my hands out of it. 🙂 Pray for me friends!
