Psalm 112:7-8 - He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. His heart is secure, he will have no fear; in the end he will look in triumph on his foes.
Uncertainty. The unknown. Life is like a sandstorm whirling all around us. So few things are sure. So few things stay the same. Our lives shift like sand on a desert island. Life’s uncertainties feed our anxieties. It moves them into a giant, shapeless sand dune. Fear wants a way of escape, but depression stopped caring a long time ago. Life doesn’t have to look like this. There are uncertainties in life, but finding support may help. Have a conversation with a close friend or family member and ask them to help you put things into a right perspective. They know life is uncertain, but they can point out some things in your life which are certain, like their friendship, and they may offer to help you through the unknown. God will also help you walk through the sandstorm of uncertainty, because he knows the beginning from the end and knows what is going to happen next for you. He will cause your fears to blow away.
