Throughout any time in history there has always been questions. The unknown has always existed.
But right now it feels like more than ever, there’s so much up in the air and we are all wanting answers.
I think what we are all really wanting is a sense of security.
We want there to be something certain.
Hence why we hear so many opinions. And see so much anger when people challenge those opinions.
Living in the fear of the unknown often brings out our ugly.
Because we all just want security.
I get it. I want to feel at ease, too.
But that’s the thing about the unknown, it’s unknown.
Literally, the smartest and most brilliant minds do not know how things are going to play out.
They can have their best educated guesses, and they do have more knowledge than the general population but still... they do not know for sure.
None of us do.
Only God does.
He has seen how this whole thing plays out.
He isn’t perplexed by this, and it doesn’t thwart His plan.
So, I just wonder what it would be like if we didn’t spend so much time arguing over who has the right answer..
But instead, tried to figure out how we can be kind humans who are moving in a good direction, while we sit in the discomfort of the unknown.
While we acknowledge the discomfort of the unknown.
And actually try to look out for each other.. and have boat loads of grace.
Because we all need it.
The truth is, no one knows for sure.
So how can we be the light of Jesus and help, love and encourage others during this time?
Because although we don’t know how this is going to go, we still know that God is God.
We still know that above all else He calls us to love Him and others.
And if that’s all we know for certain, that’s enough.
