For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
Ephesians 1:4 NIV
When people speak about chaos and mess, do we wonder if they speak from a heart of living in a certain season or a heart that struggles with mental illness? Sometimes messes stem from anxiety. One can’t focus, has a difficult time with organization and finds themselves walking in circles. Children or loved ones who live in the home often time mimic the behaviors which only amplifies the situation.
How do you become a model of Christian living when you can’t get it together? God brings peace, but a foggy flustered mind keeps the door only partially open to His grace.
Coming to terms with one’s self and with God’s grace will shine a light on these seasons and patterns. He heals in the midst of disorder and shows that we are chosen, mess and all. He handpicked us from day one and when we see Him through the fog of life, we see how we’re chosen to be holy and blameless.
He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus vs. 5.
God decided from eternity what will happen. The goal from the beginning was to be adopted sons and daughters through the grace of Christ when we believe.The goal from the beginning was to be adopted sons and daughters through the grace of Christ when we believe. Click To Tweet
Dear Lord, you make us glad as we see your faithfulness throughout all time. Your promises hold fast despite our anxious lives. We pray for eternal rejoicing as we live under the wing of the shadow of your goodness. Thank you, Lord, for choosing us and being sovereign over all. In Your Name, Amen.
