Life is uncertain, but in the midst of it all, I’m learning that God is not. Uncertainties are part of daily life for us as human beings, because we don’t know the beginning from the end. He has never ever changed from eternity to eternity, and that is comfort right there. This year has been probably one of the most intense years of change that I’ve experienced, and I’m grateful that we, as human beings, can be changed. I’m thankful that Jesus is molding me more and more into His image.
Psalm 102:25-27, ‘”Of old You founded the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. “Even they will perish, but You endure; And all of them will wear out like a garment; Like clothing You will change them and they will be changed. “But You are the same, And Your years will not come to an end.’
It’s not easy, but it’s good; I don’t want to stay the same selfish, proud person that I’ve been.
I’m in an uncomfortable really heavy learning season of life right now; it’s busy, it’s hard, it’s good. It’s full of early mornings and early to bed. It’s full of uncertainties about the future, about what God wants me to do next, and yet I’m so glad I’m right here. I know that every season is going to have those uncertainties, so I’m not regretting or thinking that I’m going to reach a place on this earth where there are no uncertainties.
But I do know that God is teaching me in every uncertainty to trust Him.
What are some of the sweet lessons I’m learning in this uncomfortable season of uncertainties?
#1) The gift of being present is something I didn’t treasure until about 2-3 months ago. I finally was reminded of that, when I started putting away my phone while we watched movies, started putting away my phone for the whole of Sunday, put away my phone while I’m working or talking to my sisters or my friends; there is so much joy in the contentedness of each moment.
