You’d think by the time you get to be my age, things would be a little less uncertain. But they’re not. As I feel myself being uncertain, and see my friends being uncertain, I have a few things I do to make it not seem so bad:
Be Here Now It seems like focusing on the future or on the past would make more sense, but it doesn’t. Focus here and now. Because right in this moment, you know exactly what’s happening.
Trust Our God has promised to never let us down. And that’s certainly true, as long as you have very low expectations. However, know that God is with you and will be with you through it all. Seek God through prayer, Bible study, church, and talking with friends.
One step at a time Uncertainly immobilizes. Stay mobile. Having options makes uncertainty seem more fun. So search for options. Write, stay current on the news, walk or run. Do things that will keep you interesting, at least to yourself.
And remember, certainty is really an illusion. We’re all uncertain. You’re just feeling it more.
