CHOAS REIGNS

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? Spring has certainly come to our neck of the woods.  It rained the ENTIRE day yesterday. But we do not complain about the rain over here because at this time of the year, that precipitation could have been snow. And today instead of the grass, I could have seen snow on the ground.  So, Lord, I am thankful for the rain. 

Slow and easy are words, I think, that will become obsolete in the near future.  Fast and complex will be their replacements.  The world, it seems, is moving at the speed of light.  Changes have simply become the norm of the day. I tell my GPS to take me to work and it gives me a different route almost daily.  Some days I long for sameness. Some days I would like my life to resemble that of my younger days, except of course, I don’t want it to include the unsettling moments.  Technology gets more complicated with every new upgrade as soon as I learn this new thing it is upgraded to that new thing.  Some days my life looks like a ‘wave that is tossed to and fro’.

I have found, though, that my life looks like that, only on the days when my eyes are not fixed on the God of the Universe.  I am thankful for the stability that is found in the God of the Universe.  I am thankful that He remains unchanging throughout the generations (Malachi 3:6).  I am thankful that He is the same God, yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).  I am thankful for the steadiness; He provides in my life.  His Word proclaims Him as the Chief Cornerstone, (Ephesians 2:19-22) and with all the distractions in the world today, I am thankful for the peace this truth brings.  I am thankful that He is my High Tower and my Shield, my Lighthouse in today’s stormy weather.  I am thankful that He is my Anchor and that in spite of the changes this world brings, He anchors my soul in Him (Psalm 62:5-6).  

As a child, the old hymns were the bane of my existence, today these same hymns draw my heart to the Lord. One such hymn is ‘It is Well with My Soul‘ by Horatio Spafford. We too can experience peace, joy and beauty in today’s changing world, when we keep our eyes fixed on our Savior. How are you doing today?

Check me out on Instagram. Let’s continue the conversation over on Instagram. Follow my Instagram and I will follow back, just let me know in the comment section. I would love to meet you 🙂

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

  1. Oh my, I just read a post from a fellow blogger and it was nearly on the same thoughts as yours…our crazy ever-changing (not for the better) world is a disappointment for sure but no matter that awful fact, we have a steadfast God who has blessed us with His solid word. Praising Him for His faithfulness in who He is and for His word that guides us.
    In this world we will have trouble (just as He’s said) but we can take heart knowing that He has overcome!!! -John 16:33

  3. Thank you for this post, Brenda. I’ve been feeling like this for the past few months now, realizing that if God is the center of my life, then everything is possible. Thank you for the encouraging post. 🙌🏾🙏🏾👑🕊️✨

  4. Ah, I wish we could get some of your rain. Or even snow. We are in a drought here, and it’s not looking good in the future.
    Oh Brenda, as I read the news of our day, and the chaos that reigns, my heart is so distressed. Abortion, LGBTQ+, wars — evil! I stand upon my Rock, my Fortress, my Salvation; and I am so glad God is The One! He has control of all things, and I derive great peace in His Truth.

  5. Hello Brenda! Yes we are very thankful for the rain here also. No worries for snow though, but we need the rain for the coming hot, summer days that parch our ground and grass here. It’s good to be thankful for whatever God sends our way.
