Uncertain: Not Clearly Identified or Defined

Now faith means putting our full confidence in the things we hope for, it means being certain of things we cannot see. It was this kind of faith that won their reputation for the saints of old. And it is after all only by faith that our minds accept as fact that the whole scheme of time and space was created by God’s command—that the world which we can see has come into being through principles which are invisible.
(Hebrews 11:1-3 J.B. Phillips)
Hello all! I am honored to be guest posting with Dawn  over at Beneath the Surface: Breath of Faith today. The past few weeks, we have been reading and responding to our journey through Writing to God.
Writing to God -40 Days of Praying With My Pen
My desire has been rekindled to express my love and passion for God through writing. I spend my days with pen and journal in hand, scribbling love notes, writing little poems, and just talking about life with Jesus. 
The prayers and writing prompts of Rachel G. Hackenberg in Writing to God: 40 Days of Praying with My Pen have opened new vistas as I meet with God on paper.
When Dawn asked me to share this week, I immediately offered the opportunity to God. When I read the prayer offering for Day 24: Uncertain, I decided to reflect on the prayer and the prompt for this week.
We all have questions and uncertainty in our lives. This prayer has edged itself into my heart, especially these lines:  “Is ‘Jesus’ the simple answer? Looking back, I see that you offered more puzzles than answers; that still seems to be true. So I will sit here, with palms open and unresolved prayers, O complex Jesus, if you will sit with me. This I ask, for lack of answers. Amen.” (Hackenberg)  
The angst that uncertainty produces in my heart desperately needed the comfort of this prayer.

  1. Thanks for hosting and participating Kel, the honor is mine! What a wonderful journey we are sharing.

    1. Yes this has been the shot of hope and peace and joy I needed during this season of life. Thank you, Dawn, for stirring us to love and journaling and praying!

    2. Hi Kel, I tried to post at Dawn's, but it wouldn't work. She didn't have the category for posting that I use w/ you. :( So.....I'll try again (see what Mike says), and if I can't do it there, I will here later. I LOVED your post!

    3. thanks Lynni! I had fun writing this post!
