Life can be chaotic. Life can be hard. Life can feel overwhelming.
Is calm possible in the midst of this all?
Calm in chaos?
Tenderness in the hard?
Peace in the overwhelming?
In the midst of the tough stuff, I have experienced this. Today, in fact. I've experienced a peace that passes all understanding when situations and circumstances in all their reason and reality have screamed otherwise. An intentional shift of my focus is required, a shift from the chaos to the Calmer of the seas. Am I always faithful in making this shift? No. Sometimes I choose to stay focused on the chaos and then the calm can remain elusive. To what end?
