Facing the Unknown

Nov 8, 2016Random0 comments

As we live day in and day out we tend to get comfortable. We get used to the life that we lead. We are familiar with all the people around us, their quirks, their personalities, and their abilities. We get into routines. We find patterns in life and just keep chugging along the train tracks of life. Rarely, does it seem, that we ever have to take a detour. We know the track we are on and we are comfortable being on it. Every once in a while, we are asked to change tracks, but this track appears to be similar to the one that we were just on and we have no problem switching.

Well, then one day we are asked to get off the track and go up in those hills on this dirt road that has many forks and fingers. No set course. No single path to follow. This is the unknown. Life throws us a major curveball. Sure, we have dealt with small ones before, but this is so far out there from what we are used to. How do we find the courage to take the path? Can?t we just keep driving on this side road along the train tracks? Fear says that we need to stay where we are at. It is comfortable. But there is something that pushes us to the unknown. There is something that says we need to step into the dark and trust in God and exercise faith that the unknown, though it brings great challenges, will afford us great growth.

I am grateful for these challenges of facing the unknown. They bring a certain spice to life, but more importantly, these are the opportunities that really help me to grow as a person. It is through leaving my comfort zone that I stretch my abilities and find out who I really am and what I can contribute to this world. I look forward to this new unknown and what it will bring!
