"Turning Uncertainty into Hope"
June 1, 2020 | View PDF
Have you ever felt that nothing is going your way? It may be at work, or family, or everyday problems. What is your typical reaction? Do you move toward feelings of “why me?” or “grrrr…not again”? Or do you pause and think “what is my life trying to tell me right now?” Friends…let me tell you, that is the question.
How you respond to the difficult things that happen to you can mean a difference in a life of anger or joy, a life of despair or hope. I once heard a wise person say “Life is an adventure. It’s not a package tour.” Being at ease with not knowing is crucial for answers to come to you. If you are dissatisfied in the unsettled state, you can’t hear what God is trying to tell you.
I believe that uncertainty is really your spirit saying something is off balance. For me, hope lives in these uncomfortable moments when you have doubts and don’t know what to do. When these moments arise, get still. Get quiet, listen, and wait. Clear space to allow. God will tell you what to do.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11
