Certain Uncertainty


In June, I am leaving Tanzania indefinitely. I’m moving back to Indiana to eventually (spring 2018) ride a bicycle across the U.S. with my parents. But more than that, I’m moving into a period of what I can only define as certain uncertainty.

I really don’t have any idea what next year will look like. I don’t know what God wants me to do long-term–or even short-term. I don’t know if this will be a year-long “sabbatical” of sorts before moving back into international education. I don’t know if it will be the beginning of something new. Its all one enormous question mark.

But really, despite all our platitudes, all of life is uncertain. 

I just tend to ignore that fact.

And, even in the greatest, most in-your-face times of not knowing, there is still one thing both known and certain: God.

God has promised never to leave or forsake me. 
God has promised to lead me.
God has promised that His way is always best.

God is always in control.
God is always good.
God is always enough.
