Journey through the Dark

I will just start by saying; it is not easy following God. To completely rely on someone you can't see or touch can be a little scary, especially when you find yourself moving with two bags to the biggest city in the US. The thing is, I would rather be doing what I think he's asking of me then question myself and become complacent. Although I have only been in New York for two weeks, I have never had to trust God more in my life. It feels as if he's only giving me a day at a time. Each day he takes me a step closer, if I choose to follow him. What if the life he has planned for me is a life where I don't know what to expect each day I live. My life and everything I do would have to acknowledge him first. The I think... Am I ok with living in the dark and walking blind, having security only in him, finding hope and opportunity completely in him? 

And I decided, yes I am ok with that, or else there is no way I would ever be doing what I'm doing now. 

So I want to encourage, and challenge you to: take a step into the dark, into not knowing what to expect, and trust God with those dreams and desires he is calling you to. The matter is, life is short, and you are here for a bigger picture. You are but a stroke of paint in his big portrait. So let loose and follow him.
