Lost—we were hopelessly lost!
We weren’t at sea or driving on the freeway; we were in the mountains—lost. A blanket of fog had obscured our visibility and we were blind to our way of escape. We had no map, no GPS, not even a compass—we lacked any orienteering equipment to help us transcend this mess. We were a group of ten hikers hunting for our way out, but it was impossible. Countless fallen logs, myriads of mossy boulders, and unstoppable rain were ganging up to forbid us from finding freedom.
And then the snow came! What next?
That was when I literally cried out to God. No, the snow didn’t stop, and I did not hear a voice telling me: “This is the way; walk ye in it.” Nothing changed, but I was at peace—we would be all right. I just knew it. In time, God provided our way of escape: a 27-ton, 52-foot flying fortress—a Chinook helicopter—owned by the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Although we were legitimately lost, the truth is that all humanity is much more lost than we were that day. God’s rescue mission meant sending—no, not a flying fortress—but Jesus, who “toiled with persistent, earnest, untiring effort for the salvation of lost mankind. From the manger to Calvary He followed the path of self-denial” (Steps to Christ, pg. 78). Jesus is the blueprint, the map—the Way. In the life, death, and resurrection of His son, God has CHARTED the way home.
This book, CHARTED, is a collection of inspirational thoughts and experiences written by Fountainview Academy’s Grade 11 English class (Graduating Class of 2019). Their assignment was to read the book Steps to Christ and write nineteen devotional readings each based on quotes from this book or the Bible. It is our deep desire that, as you read daily from these pages, though your vision may become obscured by a blanket of fog, you don’t have to be confused about the way. The certainty is in the journey: divinely CHARTED.
Produced in 2018.
