Peace in the midst of chaos

As I sat in a traffic jam earlier today, my mind whirred with things I needed to accomplish this weekend before heading back to work on Monday. At the top of the list was writing, followed by laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, and other things needing to be accomplished before the alarm sounds early Monday morning.      

Sometimes, truthfully more often that not, we feel pressured to finish our self-created "to-do lists" in a certain amount of time. Almost a race against our 24 hour clock. As chaos can ensue in trying to squeeze every second out of the day, take hope in knowing that He is there.  Don't let all the busyness of life keep you away from your quiet time so you can rest and recharge. 

Isaiah 26:3 says-"You will will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you."

When things seem to be causing you stress, breathe, pray and remember He is there with you. Relax, rest, and be restored through Him.
