By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. – Hebrews 11:8-10
Dear Heavenly Father,
Your friend Abraham is one of the greatest mentors of faith that I have ever known. He went even though he did not know where. We waste so much time waiting to see where we think you are leading when you love to hide the details. You want us to put our hand in yours. Instead of charting a course for myself and calling it your plan, I will let you drive where you want me to go. I want to live by faith that doesn’t have to see to step out. Shed light on my next step and I will go that direction even if the following steps are still hidden to me. I do not have to know exactly what you are doing, only that I have you guiding my life. Give me the faith of Abraham so I am truly your friend and not your boss.

Why waste time being overly disappointed or overly thrilled with anything in our temporary life, when our permanent home in heaven is being built by God himself.
