I don't know where I am going. I feel unsure of what will happen. I am thankful that I have a compass. Throughout the Old Testament I am struck by a common thread. They didn't know where they were going. I mean, think about it, Abraham, plunging into the unknown, Moses wandering in the desert by cloud and fire, Joseph thrown into a pit and left to an unknown fate, Daniel stolen from his home, Esther also, Ruth a stranger widowed and away from her people. These were driven by a common passion, a common thread. They trusted God. I am struggling right now with that. It is not that I don't trust. It is that I'm not sure I want to go through this fire. There is no question that I will choose to go through. I will always choose God. But this is a time I am less willing than usual. This is a desert place. I need God's cloud, his fire to lead me through. I need His reassurance in my life. His peace in time of storm.
