When my best friend’s nephew was a toddler, and was asked a question he didn’t have an answer for, his response would be, “Aunt Pati, I can’t know…” He really meant that he didn’t know, but his answer has been applicable for so many things and situations in my life. And probably in yours too.
I’ve spent the last several hours entering and re-entering numbers into my accounting spreadsheet, trying to project how much money I’ll be making when, how much I’ll owe in taxes, how I’ll ever get ahead. And I get worried and upset and forget that there are so many things I don’t know, so many things I can’t know. Tomorrow could be the day that changes everything – for good, or not. And I can’t know which it will be.
But I know the One who knows.
