Some things in our lives can’t be predicted: exactly when we’ll be born, or exactly when we’ll die. Even what happens to us in between those two life events isn’t really predictable as it’s only as we grow and learn that our personality is shaped, and we make choice that then start to define where and what our future will hold.
I must when I’m starting something, I like to know what the possible outcomes are, as I’m not very comfortable with uncertainty. Which is odd isn’t it because the whole of life is filled with uncertainty!
Maybe it’s because for me, the uncertainty about life and what lies ahead seems different from the uncertainty about taking on a task, because I know my future is already known to God, and so my future is already planned. Therefore no matter what lies ahead, I know God is already prepared for it, and is ready to help and guide me through whatever storms I may face.
Life may not be predictable, but God’s presence and His love for us is!
