I don't know what to expect.
I don't know what lay in store for me.
Can I also say?
I don't know what's in for me.

Do you know of other colloquial phrases I could use?

The third one doesn't mean the same as the other two.

"The past is certain. The future isn't." (I guess that's what you have in mind.)

The third is ungrammatical and meaningless.

I (and I suspect Tarheel also) read the last one as "I don't know what's in IT for me." That means "I don't know how I will benefit."
