I am very aware as I write this of the uncertainty that life and our many failures present, and of the fear that such uncertainty about the future can bring. I understand my friends with cancer, with a loved one suffering from Parkinson’s, with fatigue, without employment, or suffering in untold other ways feel this uncertainty much more keenly than I ever could, but in the end, it is our hope in honesty that sustains us all – our hope that even through tragedy we can triumph in life. This is our sure hope because we have the example of Jesus demonstrating how it is done.
It is his example which enables us to cast our hopes, fears and very lives every moment into God’s care.
