A well-ordered world would be so much easier to navigate. As God created the world, order was the design; there was no chaos. For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. 1 Corinthians 14:33
Growing up, I would hear the phrase, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. I'm pretty sure everyone has walked this quote at some point in this life, but it sure feels like this quote has taken the place of, In God We Trust. There was a time when people cared more about others than their platforms. It was okay to have an opinion because we respected diversity. Instead, it feels like words spoken are frozen, never heard, and that when they are, it is like a symphony gone wrong, where everyone plays their heart out with no consideration for the presentation of the whole.
We trust God because we have no order, only chaos without him. The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way. Psalm 37:23 God has ordered everything, even our salvation; there is an ordered process of the heart, the purpose, the promise.
God created me to be most effective through order and balance. He does that for me as I remain steadfast in my faith. He is our Peace provider.
As cra-cra as our world is ...
I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
Trusting in God's order of things past, present and future. I decided to follow Jesus...no turning back, no turning back.
Each new day is His, and in it, new life, new order. Great hope!
