It’s a beautiful word for something so… horrible.
I don’t know about you, but I happen to be uncertain about A LOT of things. Call it the mystery of life I suppose. Honestly, I was uncertain with what I’d even write today, much less the more important decisions to be made.
I think uncertainties make things like trust and time all the more valuable. If you know you can trust something like a chair to hold on to your weight, you don’t waste time worrying about if you’ll fall to the ground when you go to sit.
But it’s one thing to say you trust the chair and another thing entirely to take the risk of sitting down. (Such a weird analogy.)
It’s the same with saying “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart” … and actually doing it. Because while He might see the future and be at the finish line, your still jumping hurdles and whatever the heck else they do for races. (Totally athletic, this chick right here.)
Over the weekend, I heard about this girl who had her head more so in the future than she does in the present. It just doesn’t seem good to dwell in something that hasn’t (and may never) happen yet. (And that’s coming from the girl who spends hours day-dreaming. What? It’s my job!)
Some things are good to be future-minded on. As a Christian, I can look forward to Jesus’s return and living in Heaven and I can share that joy and faith with others.
But life is really, really freaking short. I mean, I’m going to blink one of these days and be fifty and chasing around grandchildren and having diabetes from eating way too much cotton candy. And pizza. And burgers. And onion rings. And ice cream….you get the idea. (It’s just, an inevitability at this point.)
And even that future in my head isn’t a done deal. I might have no children of my own (please, please, please) and I might not even make it to fifty!
All I know is that while I’m uncertain of tomorrow or even the next minute, I can be certain of what’s going on right now and I don’t have to worry about a thing.
And what I know now is that it’s time for some Netflix and some Pringles. So, peace. Ciara Jude, out. ✌️ (Because emojis are toooootally professional.)
