The great unknown


“When you have come to the edge of all light that you know and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: there will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly”
-Patrick Overton

All of us have experienced times when we have faced a great unknown, and it can be frightening. But we aren't asked to "go it alone". We go with God, and he places the tools and the people we need within our reach. As it says in Hebrews:

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Hebrews 4:14-16

  1. During those times, humming "Yahweh I Know You Are There" has been my consolation! It was a gift to me in one of those times of fear and anxiety when I asked for help and the answer came in the form of a song. For this gift I am truly grateful. Have a grand day! Cathy
