Last night as I slept I found myself boarding a city bus. Some how my mind knew I was some place in Atlanta. Because we have friends and family who live in the Atlanta area, we’ve driven through this city a few times. However, no landmark in my dream looked familiar.
As I stepped on the bus Take Me Into the Beautiful by Cloverton started to play on my iPod. I sat down toward the rear of the bus in a seat facing backwards and watched as the bus carried me by each unfamiliar street.
I wasn’t sure why I was on the bus. I had no idea where I was going. Two questions played tug-of-war with my thoughts. Do I ride it to the end of the line? Do I get off at the next stop?
Considering the current changes going on in our life, I can see how my mind would create such a scenario. So many unknowns are still looming ahead of us.
As I thought about this dream, a quote from Corrie Ten Boom came to mind. “When the train goes through a tunnel and the world gets dark, do you jump out? Of course not. You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through.”
I’m not sure yet where the bus is headed. I’m not sure where it will stop next. But today I’m choosing to trust the driver. He’ll get us there safely…and right on time.
