What to do when you don’t have the answers
Yesterday there was a major fire that shut down the main train line that took people from the Bay area to San Francisco and to say that it was mayhem is putting it lightly. There were lines that stretched for blocks where people were waiting for hours just to get on a bus that wasn’t full, even the ferries were sold out! I was lucky that there weren’t many people at my bus stop and soon after I got there, a bus pulled up that wasn’t full yet. As we made our trip toward The City the bus gradually begin to fill up until it was full and I decided to enjoy the scenic route that allowed me to view different views of the city and ocean as we traveled over to San Francisco. We were in the middle of a major crisis and people all around me were flustered, and although I wasn’t sure how I was going to get back home, I had a peace in knowing that I would. I can’t say that I know how everything is going to turn out but I am very pleased with everything that has already occurred. I don’t know when my apartment will have all the necessities that I desire, but it is coming together gradually. I don’t know if I will have the rich friendships that I have on the east coast, but I have met some really wonderful people whose company I enjoy from time to time. I didn’t know how I was going to get back home that day, but I was grateful that God made a way for me to get to work and sure enough He made a way for me to get back home as well. Sometimes you just don’t have all the answers, look at what you do have and what you do know and go from there. Every day you have to take the steps that are certain and believe that the ones that aren’t will be revealed to you when it is time. One moment at a time, one step at a time, that is how I am choosing to live my life now. It gives me peace to know that I don’t HAVE to know everything at once and it gives me permission to enjoy what is already presently available to me now.
