Living through the chaos is what comes to my mind so far for the start of this month. We have have seen wars and high gas prices and food prices so far this month. In our own lives here, we have seen life, death and people committed to one another in marriages and engagements. Everybody continues on regardless of the external circumstances. We have life, even though it may feel like the very air is being sucked right out of our lungs, we still must continue to get up and take care of what needs to be taken care of. Yes, we have tragedies, yes, we have people that keep declaring doom and gloom ahead. However, if you believe in Jesus and the Cross, and you have accepted His free gift of eternal life, then you can feel peace in the midst of this chaos. No matter what is going on around you, you don’t have to be moved into that chaos. When the disciples were in the boat and the storm was raging, Jesus was in the boat asleep. They had gotten frightened and woke Him up. Jesus woke up and rebuked the storm and then there was calm. That was Matthew 8:23-27, I also paraphrased that so y’all need to look that up. Do you see, Jesus doesn’t necessarily take you out of the storm but He is right there in the middle with you. You don’t have to worry and be sick trying to figure everything out. But you do have a part to play in the midst here. You have to accept His peace, He also said that His peace He gives to you, not as the world does. Let not your heart be trouble, neither let it be afraid. That is John 14:27, and again I am paraphrasing that, so y’all look it up.
Keep looking up y’all, even when you feel like it is over, nope, it ain’t over, the best is yet to come.
