Beautiful Chaos

I received a sweet message from a young mama this week telling me how my song "Beautiful Chaos" was ministering to her as she now has a toddler and another young child. Oh, how I remember those moments so well!

(If you haven't heard the song, here is a link to a lyrics video on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbF50BMRjVQ)

In fact, I remember that exact moment when I felt helpless in my kitchen with my toddlers undoing everything I was trying to get done.  I said out loud to no one in particular, "I am living in utter chaos!" And it was in that quiet moment when I felt God whisper to my heart, "But isn't it beautiful?" It was a humbling moment for me.

You see, God is not the God of chaos. It felt like chaos to me, because I was not in control, but God was.

What may seem like the out of control moments in our lives are actually moments orchestrated by a loving God who does not leave us alone. It's these moments where we learn patience, sacrifice, grace and mercy.  It's in these moments where we can either complain about what we "have" to go through or we can trust in Him during the experiences He allows us to have.
