Alphabet for the Soul--U is for Unknown
Happy Monday, friends!
The unknown can be scary, but at the same time, it's how we think about it and react to it that makes the difference. I know, I'm one to talk. I'm the 'what if?' girl. You know that girl? The one always fretting whether something bad is coming around the bend. Not sure why I choose to be that way.
Could be I had a rough upbringing (won't go into details), but I was scared a lot as a little girl and honestly a lot of that carried over, but I recently did Lysa Terkeurst's Uninvited Bible Study and it was revolutionary in my life.
Lysa--though I don't know her personally--shared so openly and honestly in her book how she shared so many of the same emotions growing up and how it affected her as an adult until she focused on Jesus. On His love for her.
God tells us in His Word:
If God knows the unknown and He promises to prosper us, to give us a hope and a future, then surely we can trust the unknown ride to Him because it's not unknown to Him. He sees it all, and knows what's coming around the bend and knows it's for our good. And, even more comforting is the fact that He's sitting right next to us on the ride. We can let go of our tight control on the bar and let our hands wave high in our deep trust in our Savior. He's got the ride so enjoy it!
How about you? Do you hold the bar tight or waves your hands in the air? While we're on the topic of roller coasters, favorite ride? Mine would have to be Griffon at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Va. Talk about a steep drop...
