In the Midst of the Unknowing

What is happening in the midst of this unknowing that seems to see no end? My faith is gradually being strengthened and shaped by the fires of the furnace. I am learning that though Joseph was thrown into a pit because of evil, God meant it for good. And that is what I’m clinging to in all this. I must remember—an evil person does not see the evil in what they do. They will mercilessly throw someone into a pit and not even notice. But we must forgive—I must forgive, climb out of this pit and hold my head high as I continue to march daily around the Jericho with the others in our motley crew. We are a scraggly bunch, but we have all been through a lot together. We march as a tattered family, not united by blood, but by what has seemed like a forever battle of years’ endurance. What will happen? We don’t know, but as Billy Graham said, “I know not what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future.”  I also realize what will happen is not as important as how I will face what will happen. If we don’t embrace the unknowing in our lives along with the knowings, we don’t truly live our lives. We turn into cowards that scurry about our life’s ship against the insides of the hull instead of standing out on the deck in the midst of the storm, bracing our legs so we won’t be knocked over by the crashing waves. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to the unknowing, I want to be up on the deck, not down in the hold. I want to experience and learn the many things God wants to teach me. Life is an unknowing only if we don’t allow Him to captain our ship through the calm and through the storms. May we always brace our legs and allow the salty spray of unknowing splash across our faces. May we turn our faces into the wind and welcome those hurricanes of life with courage and Godly conviction. Because when it comes down to it, when the sails are tattered and torn and straining against the wind, we can always depend on the Captain.
