Faith means living with uncertainty
– feeling your way through life,
letting your heart guide you
like a lantern in the dark.
Affirmation: Uncertainty does not sway me from my plan of action.
Uncertainty is a necessary part of growing and developing into the person I wish to become. And while it might feel comforting to have a lot of certainty in my environment, direction, and work, it also means that I am no longer pushing myself to step outside of my comfort zone.
Because I want to be the best person I can possibly be, I accept uncertainty as an inevitable by-product of risk and growth.
Uncertainty does not sway me from my plans because I have used my intelligence and the counsel of wise mentors to decide which avenues are right for me. Because I avoid impulse and make decisions wisely, I am confident that uncertainty is simply a necessary part of the journey that I need to overcome in order to discover all that is before me.
I ignore the negative thoughts that tell me that uncertainty is a sign of imminent or guaranteed failure. On the contrary, I view uncertainty as a sign of positive change that leads me into a more fulfilling life.
I will indeed make mistakes along the way, but I will remain open to the lessons that I can learn from every situation, knowing that I will thrive only by remaining open to uncertainty.
