Absolute, maddening, mind-numbing chaos.
That is what my mind feels like most of the time these days. We have so many things to do, and not enough time to do it. We haven’t even started on most of those things because we really don’t know where to start. We’re MOVING! Leaving what is familiar and jaunting off into the mystery of this new season.
Quite simply, chaos.
This morning as I think about this, we are about to take another trip to Dallas to try and scope out some possible living accommodations. In the beginning we had a plan for how we would make sure that we had money for all of this, but those plans fell through. And here we are , almost broke, making a trip that we really shouldn’t be making, but that really needs to be made. It melts my mind to try and figure all of this out, and honestly, when I feel near my breaking point, I find that all I have to hold on to comes from a simple fact:
God is good.
At the end of it all, that is the only comfort that I have many times. His goodness. The Bible says that it will overtake me and chase me down.
In the midst of chaos and turmoil, as the waters are raging around me, and even as I right now wonder how all of this will work out, the overwhelming feeling that I have is that it will,
Because God is good.
What He is calling us into is what He has already made provisions for. I can’t see it. I can’t see His hands moving, but I can trust His heart.
God is good. His goodness is absolute. There is no measure to his goodness. It is infinite and superabundant. It goes far beyond.
So even in chaos, God is good. And that goodness is what I have to hold on to right now. It’s all I have to hold on to.
