Day 20 of Chartering the Unknown

The word today is FEAR.

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 am afraid to admit it but I am dealing with quite a bit of fear these days. As much as I have seen God’s faithfulness, and saw His hand move deep waters aside for me, and calm the raging storms for me, I still fear tomorrow.

Fear grips my heart when I think of not knowing what tomorrow will bring. It hasn’t always, but it has these past couple days. Just coming home to Toledo has brought fear to my heart that we still do not have any direction as to where we will make our home. All those stupid thoughts invade, “Did God really say?” I fear not knowing if I hear correctly.

Fear is the opposite of faith. While on the cruise, my daughter bought me this ring.



This ring has actually serves as a reminder to me whenever I am tempted to fear our future. I just have to trust, and believe that God will guide my husband and I have to have the faith that keeps me from focusing on what we don’t have. So I am thankful for this little reminder to lift my eyes to the author and the finisher of my faith.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4
