Into the Unknown

Two of my granddaughters share a toy which, when pressed in just the right spot, exclaims, “Ah-Ah, oh-oh! Ah-Ah, oh-oh! Into the unknoooooon!” And, yes, it’s Elsa, aka Idina, belting it out. Both girls love to sing along as they twirl around.

I’m not really a Frozen fanatic, but the song intrigues me. If you look up the lyrics, you’ll find lines about

  • ignoring whispers and blocking them out.
  • deciding that life has already had enough adventure.
  • fearing the risk of following the voice.

Okay, I’ll stop there, since none of us can conjure ice. However, the song has caused me to ask these questions: averse

  • Do we block out God’s voice when he asks us to do something difficult or uncertain?
  • Are we adventure averse, when (cue Stephen Curtis Chapman) following the Lord can be a great adventure?
  • Are we afraid to follow His voice?

To all of the above, I hope the answer is, or can become, a resounding “No!!” We all face uncertainty from time to time. In every single case, if the Lord asks us to do it, then he will take us through it. How could it be otherwise? We do not serve some cosmic prankster. He equips, directs, blesses.

So, if you ever hear him calling you into the unknown, say, “Yes!” and rely on him.

  1. Amen & amen! We can learn so much from our kids/grandkids – what they say, what we read & watch with them. May we clearly hear God’s voice for the adventures ahead!
