This season of life has been filled with chaos. I know that life isn’t always going to be like this and that I should even embrace this slight uncomfortable feeling. When I am so distraught I know that the only place in which I can get rest is at the feet of Jesus.
If you are struggling to find rest in the middle of your chaotic life, like me, I would tell you that this isn’t new to God. He alone knows that you are tired from your everyday distractions and He wants to carry that burden for you. It is so freeing to finally be able to lay at the feet of Jesus and tell Him all that you are dealing with. I, myself, have yelled out and cried out to Him in such anger and frustration! Like, Kim Kardashian ugly cry!
The decision we have to make now is whether we are going to let everything bring us down until we can’t walk anymore or are we finally going to let go of the things that we are scared to lose control over? Reality check here – even if you THINK you are in control you really aren’t. The God of the universe, the Creator of everything under the sun and moon, is sovereign over it all. He has ordained all of our days before we lived just one. He isn’t scrambling about trying to come up with a Plan B, C, and D because of the decisions we make. He knew that we would fail Him, yet He is unfailing. We disappoint, yet He is faithful.
My friend, I would encourage you to take a deep breath. Stand still and look up to God. Know that you are loved and cared for in this very moment and don’t place your identity and worth in something that will eventually change like the tides. It’s not worth it.
