First of all, I am the ENFJ temperament. We don’t love uncertainty at all. We love closure.. we like to plan and to see those plans unfold. We enjoy completing things and reaching goals. We take it personally when people can’t seem to answer phone calls or emails..it leaves us hanging.. wondering if we did something wrong or if they just got too busy.
For me..uncertainty feels like the enemy.. if only everything could be settled. Life with God is not that way. We live in an adventure and that means there will be twists and turns as we follow Him. Our lives will be filled with surprises and unexpected circumstances..some wonderful.. others difficult. A life of faith means letting go of wanting to know..yes I said ” wanting to know.” Learning to live with uncertainty.
So.. my new prayer.. “Lord help me live in this uncertainty that you have allowed in my life.” It draws me back to Him. He is the only sure thing. He is unchanging and His character is always the same. Our future may be uncertain. We are waiting for many things..wondering how long it will all take. The only safe place for me and for you is staying close to the heart of God.
I am certain of His love for me.. and for you. I am certain He will always take care of me..and you. I am certain that He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I am certain that I am the apple of His eye and so are you. I am certain that He is holding me in the palm of His hand and I see you there with me. He has us right where He wants us and He will not fail us.
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
