I’m back after a long time of procrastination and many shifts of priorities. A lot has changed since my last post. I’ll be a dad soon! This October I’ll be a dad of a bouncing baby boy! Right now, as I write this blog, I’m in Chicago raising my ministry partnership to get me back to where I am called to do.
There are lots of changes in life that can bring uncertainties. Uncertain, meaning you are not sure what will happen next. Sometimes it brings fear or excitement or anxiety but as I observe life, uncertainties are inevitable. The only way to go about it is to learn how to navigate through it. I don’t have the monopoly of how to navigate thru uncertainties in life but so far, here are some things I want to share how to navigate through it.
1. Be secure of your calling — This has to be intact as a person, as a man or a woman, whether you are working in a church or not. The calling of a person needs to be secured by faith. Know what God has called you “to be” and not just “to do” is one of the keys to be secured about your calling.
2. Ask for wisdom from people who has gone ahead of you — For me, it will save you a lot of heartaches and pit stops. Knowing what “can” happen thru the experiences of “mature” people will give you a slight picture of what is ahead, although it’s not conclusive, its helpful enough for you to move forward.
3. Deepen your Relationship with God — As a follower of Christ, this is my hinge in life whether things go bad or good. The good thing about uncertainties is that it strengthens your faith that God holds your future and regardless if it goes bad or great you know you are in good hands of a loving Father who will never leave you or forsake you. In my life, I experience the growth in my relationship with God as I read the Bible — the source that we have in knowing Him.
Uncertainties in life are inevitable but are not impossible to go through it. Hope this helps for you to have hope and strength to move forward despite uncertainty.
