In a month and a half’s time I will have finished my journey in Berlin, Germany. I still have no plan. No plan for where I will go next. Only a vague plan. I’ll travel some. Try and hear from Father God again after such a long silence Except maybe it wasn’t such a silent time after all. I have heard from Father. Just I haven’t had any clarity over my situation yet.
Am I frightened of what the future holds? Do I worry about what the future holds for me? Most days I no longer worry about the future or let fear stop me from living by faith. I have learnt much on this journey full of surprises. To take it in my stride all that life brings me. To enjoy life’s spontaneity rather then dread it. Of course saying that, it is a journey, and at times a difficult one. There are days where I do not have that peace and that assurance that everything will work out for the glory of God’s kingdom. And I question all the things that could go wrong.
- Is it really realistic to have given in my resignation when I do not have a back-up plan?
- Where will I go next?
- What has God got in store for me?
- What will my next job be like?
And though I don’t have the answers now for what my future entails, I have an assurance that Father has his path prepared for me, and I know that he will guide me regardless.
Jeremiah 29.11 – ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future .’
I will not let fear rule my world. I’ll simply go with the flow of life, having a confidence assurance in my heavenly Father and knowing that he is capable of making mountains move where it seems an impossible feat.
2018 is another year, and another year where I can serve the Lord, and live by faith, and try again. And if I make mistakes, I can pick myself up again. Living by faith is a journey, and can be a challenge but ultimately it is the most rewarding thing that can be done. Because you know that you are not alone, and that Father is with you every step of the way.
So for now, I will live in peace amidst the turmoil and uncertainty in my life, knowing that Father will see me through the next season in my life.
