I don't know

Last night as I was going to bed, I just kept thinking to myself - I don't know. I don't know. That tends to be the usual response, or it can easily go to the other extreme - I know.  So much is held up in those two small phrases.

I don't know. - meaning a lack of knowledge on some level. Truth. I have no clue where life is taking me next. I have no clue what the next day will hold.  I have no clue what God is doing in my life presently.  I have no clue what He will do in my life.  I am unsure of what step to take next and in what direction.  I am unsure if the Lord would have me to marry or not to marry - Oh please, marry!  I am unsure if I will have kids. 

I know. - meaning a completeness in knowledge; aware of the Truth.  My general response when someone is speaking Truth into my life, and I'm aware of that Truth yet failing to act it out.  I know God is my Strength.  I know I can trust Him.  I know He has created the plans for my life and that He is Sovereign.  I know that God has a purpose for my life. I know He is faithful; He is loving; He is gracious.

And then I read Colossians 3:23 this morning: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human.
And then I read this...

And then I realized... I don't know is Okay.
