Day 6: Into the Unknown

This post brought to you from my futon by tired eyes, relaxing afternoons, and, of course, coffee - with cinnamon!

Howdy y’all, and welcome to Day 6 of #100DaysofHannah!

As I sit down to write this post, I’ll admit, I have no idea where it’s going to go.
Which, I suppose, is what makes this 100 days of blogging so much different than my typical blogging style.  Normally, I only write when I feel like I have something to say, but here I find myself committed to a daily post, regardless of how much, or little, is on my mind.

But maybe that’s the point.
Seeing the beauty in the commonplace.
Finding meaning even in the monotony of routine.

Or maybe I’m just waxing too philosophical.

Who knows.
Definitely not me.

There’re a lot of unknowns right now.
Yes, with COVID-19 and the economy, but also with life.
For me, residency ends in 2 months and I’m supposed to decide where I’m spending the next year within the next 18 days.
And... I just don’t know - what to do, how to do it, where to go.

Some days living in a constant state of uncertainty is easy.
But other days?
It sucks.

I’ll admit, it’s hard for me to accept that that variance is okay.
I like being the person who has the answers and always sees the bright side and can find it easy to trust God and his loving kindness and tender mercies.
But that doesn’t mean it always comes easily.
Because some days it doesn’t.

I think that may just be the point.
Trusting when it’s hard forces me to look to Christ, rather than my own disposition, turning my self-reliance on it’s head, as in His abundant grace, He, once again, finds me just where I am.

How great is the love the Father has lavished upon us that we should be called children of God - and that is what we are.

‘Til tomorrow: May your paths be straight, your faith strong, and your mind at peace.

-Hannah

PS:
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget the most important part!
Question of the Day: What unknowns are you facing right now, and how are you handling them?
Challenge of the Day: Allow yourself to feel the hard emotions. It really is okay to not be okay.
