Shifting Sands

It's been 3 working days now since my last day at my old job. And surprisingly, it's been just as busy as it would have been had I been working, if not more.

I have either been out running errands or have been occupied with one thing or another such that I have yet to get down to stuff I actually want to do.

Nevertheless, these are exciting times.

I used to think of uncertainty as being such a bother, but facing it now evokes a different spectrum of sentiments from me.

Yes, of course, I am a little uneasy, especially since there are only 114 days left to my wedding. But yet I feel somewhat alright, and am content to just wait and see how everything pans out.

It would be presumptuous to call this faith though. How does a person measure whether they have faith anyway?

Of course we do what we can to trust God, but how do we know for sure that our confidence lies in having faith in Him alone, since it could be also partially influenced by other factors such as pride or other things?

Whatever the case may be, I personally feel that's there's more required at times like this than mere faith. I must do what I can do, exhaust all my options and strength.

Then once that has been done, it will be time for me to watch, wait and embrace whatever God has in store for me.
