Chaos…

Lately, I have been besieged by chaos.  Most of it in my mind, but some from the happenings in the world.

When so much is happening in my life, as I age, I tend to not be able to deal with it very well.  With my every day life, add in life’s ups and downs, and then the happenings of yesterday, my mind just can’t get clear.

Why does it seem there is so much chaos?  We are in the End Days, and things are supposed to get bad, but really?  Setting off explosions at a marathon?  Evil is all around us and it seems to be getting worse daily.  All of this evilness just seems so chaotic to me. 

Why do people do these kind of things?  I know the answer is that there is evil in the world, but WHY?  Why the hatred, why the anger?  Why do we want to kill other people?  Why do we want to inflict hurt on others?  How can this help the person doing it to feel better?  Lots of questions, no answers, except for Jesus.

The Bible speaks about evil being in the world and that things will get a lot worse before they get better.  But it all just seems so senseless!  The farther we get from Christ, the worse our behavior becomes.

For those of us who personally know Jesus, we have a job to do.  We have to live like Jesus, talk like Jesus would and reach out to others like Jesus would.  We need to love like Jesus did.  And this is the only way that we have any chance of slowing the spread of chaos in our world. 

Oh Jesus, please be our portion today.  We are overwhelmed by the chaos in our world and the only way to escape it is to find our peace in You.
