"5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart 
   and lean not on your own understanding; 
6 in all your ways submit to him, 
   and he will make your paths straight." - Proverbs 3:5-6

"1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
 2He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
   for his name’s sake.

 4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
   I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
   your rod and your staff,
   they comfort me."
- Psalm 23:1-4

"Naturally, we are inclined to be so mathematical and calculating that we look upon uncertainty as a bad thing…
To be certain of God means that we are uncertain in all 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." - Oswald Chambers
