Moments Of Beauty In A World Of Chaos
The world is spinning out of control all around us, and it can be overwhelming. It’s heartbreaking to watch the news, pick up a newspaper or even talk with friends. The negativity and chaos and confusion paint everything with a dark paintbrush, making us wish we could just go back to bed and pull the covers over our heads.
Withdrawing from the world sounds like a safe, comforting idea, but then we miss out on the beautiful moments all around us.
A sunset that knocks your socks off.
An unexpected note from someone special.
A walk around a beautiful place.
A conversation that lifts your spirits.
A Bible verse that hits your heart in a powerful way.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
We are never left alone to deal with difficult situations by ourselves. Jesus promised that He would leave His followers with peace in the Person of the Holy Spirit. The Comforter teaches us daily, reminding us of all the truth we know and believe and trust in because we know and believe and trust in Christ Himself.
Trials and tribulations don’t have drag us down with them. When we focus on the Lord and listen for His words of peace and comfort in our hearts, we can be victorious over the evil that remains in the world.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8
