I’m a planner. I like to sit down, figure out the best way to do something, and then do it. For some things that works just fine. Especially if it’s something that I know how to do. Planning brings a level of certainty to the situation and it makes me more comfortable. As humans, we are wired for predictability (even if the only thing predictable is that we like the unpredictable). But life isn’t always predictable. There are times where we know we need to so something but we aren’t sure how to do it. We don’t know the best way forward. We aren’t even sure that it will all work out. We just know that we need to do it.
That’s where faith comes into the picture. Faith requires us to take the next step even when we don’t have all the answers. It’s a scary place to be and maybe that’s where God wants us. It means we have no choice but to rely on him.
