Friday Fictioneers – “Blind Faith”




Engineer’s Log 4027-B:

Wandering aimlessly through outer space has a way of messing with your head…

It’s been seven weeks, three days since Odyssey XIV was struck by a meteorite and lost pressurization. Yep…I’m counting.

I keep wondering, “Why me?” Why was I the only one suited up– the only one to survive?

But here’s the bigger question: “Where am I?” The incident veered Odyssey off course and left her flying blind. Reading unfamiliar stars is like running through a maze – without guiding walls.

Will I ever solve this puzzle and reach home?

Praying. So far, nothing but vacuum.





Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Hebrews 11:1



“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God.”

James 1:5



“The LORD directs the steps of the godly.”

Psalm 37:23


This week’s Friday Fictioneers Challenge was to combine 100 words with the intriguing photo above and watch them spontaneously combust into a splendid work of speculative fiction.

We may feel as if we’re wandering through a maze, or drifting aimlessly… but isn’t it wonderful to know that God sees the bigger picture, and is able to guide us through that wide open gate?  If we’ll simply ask Him, He will guide us safely home…

    1. Thanks… my thought was that the photo prompt itself tells the ending of the story… the photo shows an open gate leading out of a maze, and so I do think he’ll find his way home…

      Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love the way you have likened being lost and trying to read the stars in outer space to navigating a maze – alone. How terrifying. Yet your trust in God not only keeps you going, but confident of finding your way home. Inspirational story,Jonn, as well as a very enjoyable read.
