The word certainty was in something I read today. For whatever reason, it is stuck in my mind. The next thing that pops up is the question;”What are you certain of?”
There are many negative things I could do that I would be certain of the outcome. If I jump off a 10 story building I am certain I will be dead after I hit the ground. If I stick my hand in the fire I am certain I will be burned. What positive thing is there that I could do, I could be certain of the outcome? It seems to positive things there is an almost if and maybe to them. It seems there is always an instance that can thwart a good certainty. More than likely I will wake up tomorrow unless I die in the night of something. There seems to be more uncertainty around.
I am certain God loves me. I am certain my family loves me. I am certain of a few friends who care about me. However I can never be certain of what it will look like or act like.
