When You’re Uncertain: 3 Basics to Breathe Peace Into Your Soul

When You're Uncertain


I don’t know about you, but I find myself here often.

A place of uncertainty.

Where there seem to be more questions than answers.

Where the future is unclear. The tasks ahead daunting. The wait for resolution wearisome.

But it’s become a familiar place, and since I’ve been here so frequently, I may as well take comfort in what I already know. While it’s tempting to babble endlessly about the complications of life, sometimes all I really need are the short, sweet basics.

And the basics haven’t changed.

1) I can walk in obedience today.

Though I can’t see more than one step ahead of me, I have God’s Word — a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path (Psalm 119:105). I have enough of His revelation to live today according to His will.

2) I can remember what God’s already done.

While I’m waiting for tomorrow’s marching orders, yesterday’s memories prove His faithfulness, provision, and direction. And He hasn’t changed (Hebrews 13:8).

3) I can trust Him for the future.

His promises are true. If He says “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you,” (Psalm 32:8), then He really will. In His timing, not mine.

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. —Psalm 46:10

For right now, that’s really all I need to know.


How have you been? I’d love to hear from you or lift you up in prayer if you too have a few uncertainties to wade through.

  1. Your post today was just what I needed to hear. As I counsellor & intercessory I am aiding many who carry heavy loads. Your 3 Basics remind me to stay in today. Jesus will give me the wisdom for those who come tomorrow.
