If I am honest I seriously struggled with what to write and how to write it. Uncertainty is ugly, and often leaves us panicked. Well it leaves me panicked anyway.
We are living in a culture and day of uncertainty and unpredictability. It can all change at a moment’s notice or even evolve into crippling anxiety over time. Job loss, moving, new babies, adoption, politics, sickness, etc. The list could carry on for a few hundred words. Our lives are filled with uncertainty.
It’s troubling and exhausting living with uncertainty. It can truly cripple us to our weakest places. It raises up resentment, restlessness and for some it brings on depression and severe anxiety.
While this world may be filled with uncertainty here is one thing we know for sure…Embracing God’s pace means understanding that when we follow Him, He will show us the way. It doesn’t mean that there is an easy out or a perfect solution, it does mean however that we have a God we can trust. It means that we are heading in the right direction when we are walking with Him.
His Word reminds us to “fix our eyes NOT on what is see, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” (2 Cor. 4:18)
I am reminded of these song lyrics “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame but wholly lean on Jesus name.” (Edward Mote)
So wherever your uncertainty is at this moment…remember this, when we are living life at His pace our hope in Him will drive out all uncertainty.
