Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Work.
Reading the prompt, my mind immediately goes to a text conversation from yesterday. It went something like this:
Person: “I have to be honest … with not knowing what is going to happen, I’m not handling it well. I don’t do well with unknowns and it feels like my whole world is an unknown right not.”
Me: “Life is full of uncertainty. We trust our certain God in all things. Everything will fall into place as it should in His time. It will all work out.”
Person: “It’s just hard to trust all of that when it feels like everything is falling apart.”
Me: “Sometimes it has to fall apart in order for God to bring it all together.”
And that is so it. Life is filled with uncertainty no matter how advanced technology becomes or how much education we may obtain. We will never be able to be certain of all things all the time.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28, NLT)
Not everything will go as planned. Not everything will be good. But we have the assurance that our God will bring good from all things which occur in our lives. And on those uncertain days, may we remember:
“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
(Corrie Ten Boom)
There is only one certainty in this life …
Our God will work all things out.
