Day 13 of Chartering the Unknown

The word today is WORK.

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.


According to John 6:29, The work of God is to believe in Jesus.

Honestly, it does take a lot of work in the heart to believe that God is going to do what He said He would do. So our heart muscles are at work trusting in the plan that the Almighty has for us.

Right now we are resting from work on the cruise. Bill is on vacation from his work, and we get to spend the whole time with each other. I love to spend time with Bill. He is such a wonderful husband. I will follow him wherever the Lord leads him. He trusts in the Lord. He looks to the heavens to which his help comes from.

The Perfect Pair

He is also so loyal to his employer. He has been there over 18 years and he has never even called in sick once. Not even when I begged him to stay home with me because I was sick.

He  is a hard worker. When he works, he works with his whole heart. He goes the extra mile, and he does it as unto the Lord.

When we get off the cruise, Bill is going to be looking for work more diligently. As of right now, he is still employed but he is looking for another job. He has applied in many positions already. But he wanted to wait until after the cruise because no employer likes to hire some one only for them to take a whole week off when they just start. So we are praying the Lord opens the door for work after our vacation.

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands (Psalm 90:17).

P.S. Since I will be unavailable the entire cruise, I will respond to any comments when I return. I have pre-written the blogs for the week of October 11-16 to go along with Kate Motaung’s prompted word of the day, and they will be automatically sent on the corresponding day. I must complete the challenge!
