Uncertainty

(Part 2) Prov. 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight (NIV).

How comfortable are you with uncertainty? Many parents agonize over decisions because they are afraid of making a mistake, but God doesn't promise to give us absolute certainty. He invites us to know and trust Him in the midst of uncertainty. That's what faith is all about! 

If you constantly worry about your children, surrender your fears to God. Instead of being determined to figure out what God wants you to do, focus instead on who He is. As human beings with finite minds, we do not always understand the eternal purposes behind events. Faith is trusting that our story will fit perfectly into His story.

Trust God's character in the midst of uncertainty and embrace the wisdom and goodness of God.
