Musings From A Musical Mind

The Happy Uncertainty

If you have ever been in a state of flux, that precarious place between certainty and doubt – then you will understand where we are at right now.

The older I get, the more comfortable I become.  Comfortable with myself, my husband, friendships and my surroundings.  Having a home and “things” have provided a feeling of being settled and being safe.  But the things I own  –  do not own me.  I am thankful for that.  I have watched many beloved things come and go throughout our life in ministry together.  Whole households of furniture bought and sold – filled up then emptied again.  Many times.  And it does not define me to be with or without.

We are right back to that place between not knowing and knowing.  I don’t much like this place.  But as with any pain and testing – it is also a great place to grow and learn many valuable life lessons.  Here are a few things I’m learning along the way:

 

#1 – Let God be God – He will lead and direct if we will listen and are open to it

#2 – Keep a loose grasp on material things that are here today and gone tomorrow

#3 – Be happy as you Live in the moment

#4 – Be grateful and thankful for the little things

#5 – Embrace each new experience as an opportunity to learn

 

There are many more things I’m bound to learn along this ever changing journey I am on.  So for now I will say that I am still learning, still open to new possibilities and still becoming.

And so as things are walking out of our home once again – I’m finding myself back at this same place.  Uncertain, struggling to make things work, trying to be okay with an unresolved future and place to land.  And strangely – it’s all right.

I am uncertain about the future – but I am happy and confident that He will lead us…Ever been there?  Are you still here?

 

God Bless

    We moved 20 times in 40 years, knew severe financial hardship, did not have food to eat for 3 days once, and faced sickness and death a few times. Looking back at age 80, God gave me good times so I could enjoy life, and tough times to suppress pride and mature as a man. His way is balanced.

    Loved your post today.
