Living with Uncertainty

balloons-388973_1280

Although I have barely any understanding of politics, I think it’s fairly safe to say that the last month or so has been a pretty uncertain time. Britain left the EU and the whole countries leadership has completely changed.

Now my generation are more worried than ever about holding onto a job and ever being able to afford to buy a house. This is probably a period of history our grandkids will be learning about for their GCSE’s!

The last month or so has been pretty uncertain for Joe and I as well. We have had to leave our flat, and live with various members of our families. Because of this I have had to leave my job, and I haven’t been able to find a new one yet! I have no idea where we will be living or what I will be doing a couple of months from now, let alone a whole year from now.

We are pretty unsure what the future will hold for us. But despite, at times over the last month or so, not knowing where we will be sleeping that night, I have seen God’s provision.

It’s so easy for me to forget all that he has provided for me in the past. How he has always provided me with a job when I have needed it, friends, and a place to live.

Deep down, despite my little worries, despite the tears I have cried and the anger I have felt I know that he will keep on providing for us. I know that he has a plan for our lives.

It’s so easy for us to worry about our futures, especially when we hear words like recession and university fees and house prices being repeated all the time. It’s easy to forget that God is in control. It’s easy to forget how much he has blessed us and how much he is still blessing us and how well off we truly are.

Despite all the changes that are going on around us there is one thing we know for certain. That God is with us and he loves us and that he will never change.

  1. So sorry to hear of your struggles! I thought I had not heard from you for a while. I pray that your living space and job problems are resolved soon. You are right to trust in God to work this all out.

  2. Although I’m from the US, I enjoy reading about what’s happening in your part of the world. We’re feeling a bit unstable here as well, as we head into the season of choosing the next president. Quite honestly, things seem to be this way all over the planet.
    As Christians, we must hold fast to what we know is true: GOD IS IN CONTROL. And we must pray! Pray for the church. Pray for those who need to know Christ, for they are watching us and need hope.
    I’m praying for your housing and job situation.
    Keep shining your light, sister-in-Christ!

  3. My family went through many tough times when I was a kid, but we were able to see the many ways in which God provided for us, and those memories still inspire my faith today.

    Your faith and encouragement for others who may be in similar circumstances is inspiring for others. God bless you with all you need and with new opportunities!
