We're not sure yet...

At the moment, we aren't sure about much.

I'm not sure how well I did on my final exam in Theology.
We're not sure what to do with the ever increasing stack of books in our living room.

I'm not sure what to make for dinner. (although I AM sure Doug will be ready for dinner when he gets home)
I'm not sure what the cat is thinking when he comes inside to throw up on the carpet.

We're not sure if we should stay in school.
We're not sure where we are supposed to go from here. (although there are some prospects)

I'm not sure which job I should commit to.
I'm not sure where I left my watch.

We're not sure about lots of things.
But what we ARE sure of makes all the other uncertainties A-OK.

We are sure that we worship the God who created the universe.
We are sure that we trust Him for all we need.
We are sure in His promises to save us.
We are sure that in Him, our future is secure.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the LORD, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the LORD, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.

Jeremiah 29:11-14
