Leave everything to Him (6/29/13)

A friend posted this today and I had to share it because this has rang so true for us during this process...thank you Sandy for sharing!

"Our natural inclination is to be so precise-trying always to forecast accurately what will happen next--that we look upon uncertainty as a bad thing. We think that we must reach some predetermined goal, but that is not the nature of the spiritual life. The nature of the spiritual life is that we are certain in our uncertainty. . . . To be certain of God means that we are uncertain in all our ways, not knowing what tomorrow may bring. This is generally expressed with a sign of sadness, but it should be an expression of breathless expectation. As soon as we abandon ourselves to God and do the task He has placed closest to us, He begins to fill our lives with surprises. Leave everything to Him, and it will be gloriously and graciously uncertain how He will come in--but you can be certain that He will come. Remain faithful to Him." My Utmost for His Highest
