Oswald Chambers for all of us A Types : )

"Naturally, we are inclined to be so mathematical and calculating that we look upon uncertainty as a bad thing.
We imagine that we have to reach some end, but that is not the nature of spiritual life.
The nature of the spiritual life is that we are certain in our uncertainty....
Certainty is the mark of the common-sense life: gracious uncertainty is the mark of the spiritual life.
To be certain of God means that we are uncertain in our ways, we do not know what a day may bring forth.
This is generally said with a sigh of sadness, it should be rather an expression of breathless expectation.
We are uncertain of the next step but we are certain of God. (Amen)
Immediately we abandon to God, and do the duty that lies nearest...
He packs our life with surprises all the time... : )
We are not uncertain of God, but uncertain of what He is going to do next... (Yes)
When we are rightly related to God, life is full of spontaneous, joyful uncertainty and expectancy." (Hallelujah!)
