I Am Certain

August 15, 2007

I am certain that in life, in business, in ministry, in…everything, that people will disappoint you. I am certain that I will disappoint others, that I will fail. I am certain that I must keep pressing on.

I am certain that as long as life involves people, flawed people, that you will experience hurt and will be wronged. I am certain that I myself have hurt others and thank God for that little thing called grace.

I am certain that business owners, managers, church leaders, people in authority…will make mistakes, mistakes that affect you. I am certain that I will do dumb things, dumb things that will affect others. I pray they are minimal. I pray for wisdom.

I am certain that beyond any disappointment, hurt, or wrong doing is God’s absolute best. I am certain that beyond that difficult time is something you couldn’t have dreamed up yourself. It’s bigger than you. I am certain that life sometimes takes trials to build character. I am certain that God is looking for men and women who above all else will hold fast to Him, and react in all circumstances with patience, understanding, forgiveness…character. I am certain I struggle with that. I am certain that we are to pray for those who do us wrong. I am certain that is whacked out. I wonder how many people have to pray for me?

I am certain that nobody is always trustworthy. I am certain that HE is.

I am certain that I’m uncertain about a lot of things, including how to end this post.
