Few of us enjoy chaos. It’s just too...chaotic, right?
The human mind needs order and peace, yet we live in this messy world. Stuff is flying by all the time, and we duck.
Our relationships are a mess, and we have to schedule that root canal...while simultaneously making dinner and cleaning the house.
Is there a way out?
Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”
It’s all perspective.
Yes, you might have a hundred things to do before 4 p.m. today, but remind yourself of this: sometimes we miss the best days of our lives because we don’t focus on the good. God brought order out of a vast chaos long ago…formless, empty—to create a world of beauty. And He did it because He loved us.
If He can handle that, can we handle our busy day of meetings and yes, even that root canal? I think we can.
Pray with me.
Lord, our lives get so busy we forget that you made order out of chaos. Help us to slow down our brains and hearts and learn to savor the moment. In Jesus’ name, amen.
