"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.
 3
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
