I keep asking God where I am going, but he only shows me what to do one day at a time. I like the open endedness of the process, but I am still overcoming the anxiety. It's a nonsensical anxiety, because I know God knows the end even before the process began, and I know he is always taking care of me. In fact, he always makes sure I am well taken care of, not just a little.
So the process is in me, learning to give up the thinking and the control. It's funny because I thought I had learned that at one time, but now, in new circumstances I have to learn the same lesson again. I want so much to be able to live in that frame of mind.
So here is my picture of where I am. I think it comes from the many verses in the Bible that say "Our God is a consuming fire." It is God's burning Son, the one how purifies us by fire, and it is a wonderful process, and enjoyable if you can give yourself to the process and not the life situations. It's a process of being purified in the fire like gold, seven times, and as long as my goal is to become more like him and not to be a great earthly success it is glorious.
