Five Minute Friday: Belong

“For the plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue from the Lord.”

We travelled over four hours and landed ourselves in the largest city within 1,000 kms of our small village population 750.  The city was busy and crowded and hurried and we lost our direction easily and quickly.  We went, as a family, to explore universities here in this harbour city.  University options for our first born – the thought makes this mama shudder.  We’re fish out of water, yet we tour and learn and ask questions we leave with more information, but less direction than when we arrived.  And our son, seeking his future, knows only that he doesn’t like this big city, and is more confused than before as to where he belongs in this next leg of his journey.
So we leave, and drive to what looks like the end of the world, where the line of the ocean limits have carved and cut the rock and we rest and take it all in. 

Each of us pondering quietly in the back of our mind, where will he go, how will he know, what will he be when he grows up?

I do the only thing I know.  Enjoy the few moments I have left with him and commit the rest to his heavenly Father.  He will show you where you belong, son of my womb.

It is my prayer, as you walk toward the path that is uncertain, to a calling you do not know yet, that you will trust the Lord to guide you always and lead you on the narrow road. 

“And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it.  It shall belong to those who walk on the way.”  Is. 35:8
