The truth is….
I don’t have it figured out. I wish I did. But I don’t.
I don’t know how I feel about some cultural issues that are getting hit hard in our media today. I don’t know how I feel about how the Church should be responding. I don’t know how I feel about some public figures these days. Are they being brave or are they being brash? I just don’t know… I don’t know how I feel about why I am the way I am. I don’t know how I feel about my past. I don’t know how I feel about my present and I certainly don’t know how I feel about my future. I don’t know how much to write or say or do. Am I just adding to the noise? I don’t know if this or that relationship will last.
I. Don’t. Know.
When the truths of what I don’t know eludes me, I have to fall back on the truths of what I do know. I don’t have it figured out and it’s not up to me to figure it out.
Because I do know what I know.
~ I do know that I am not alone.
“Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
~ I do know that I don’t have to have it all figured out. And I’m trying to let God convince me that I don’t have to have it all figured out. I suppose I’m a slow learner. But I do know that I’m learning. And I do know that I’m not a quitter.
I’m kind of banking on this ^ being true.
~ I do know that I should probably just sit tight. Stay in it. Stay at it. “Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him. “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you.” John 8:32
~ I do know that I need to let God help me work through the truths of what I don’t understand rather than trying to go at it myself because doing it myself never seems to work out quite like I had imagined.
One thing we are guaranteed in life is that our plans
will not work out like we planned.
Onward… in truth.
To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man. ~William Shakespeare
