Wise words from Will Van Der Hart of Mind And Soul….
The power of anxiety and the drive to eradicate uncertainty have literally stolen life’s adventure. This is of course a direct contrast to the promise of Jesus who said, “I have come to give you life and life in all its fullness.” (John 10:10). The Christian life is not about resolving every uncertainty; it is about really living despite our uncertainty. It does not take the uncertainty out of life; it takes life out of the uncertainty. The Christian life proposes that we can have certainty in the things that are truly important; in our relationship with God, in our value as people and in our eternal future. Everything else is adventure to be enjoyed together. As the great reformer Martin Luther said, “Pray and let God worry.”
