Certainty and Change

There are times in life where everything feels certain. It's a kind of firmness in your gut and peace in your spirit that yes, you really are doing what God wants you to do.

You see it in Sacred Scripture, when the right verses tend to just--literally--fall into your lap. When your prayers are met with an internal yes, and your assurance is only strengthened when your choices are met with success.

So what do you do when suddenly, even years down the road, you feel your certainty fade? You ask God for help, guidance, or, if you're me, "a neon sign. Something obvious."

Within two weeks, in the span of an hour, your certainty is cut in two. Suddenly, living the life you have has been made nearly impossible for you. You had no backup plan.

Does God ever change His mind?

Nothing in life is certain.

From the ends of the earth I will cry to You;
When my heart is overwhelmed,
lead me to the Rock that is higher than I...
