Day 23 of Chartering the Unknown

The word yesterday was LOOK.

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.


Looking back yesterday I would have to say that my day looked pretty gloomy. Thank you Jesus that His mercies are new every morning, and every morning I can make a conscious decision to look up and not down.

The way things look in the natural is reason for worry. However, we are called to walk by faith and not by sight, so today I look to the hills from where my help comes from.

I got to visit with my son Isaac yesterday, and he is doing really good. He is getting the help that he needs and he told me he was reading his Bible and understanding it. That is huge! I was also told that Isaac would not be able to be released to come home to me because we don’t have a home. They will not release him to me if I am still in a shelter. It has weighed heavy on my heart, but God is the one who opened the door for us to be here so He knows what He is doing.

The biggest temptation right now is to stop looking at my husband, and all that he needs to do. It is a constant battle within me to look up and keep looking up. I know in my heart that it is God Who will move us, and it is God Who supplies, and it is God Who directs so I am looking to the ONLY One Who knows what tomorrow will bring.
