“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul …” (Psalm 23:1 – 3a)
“Lord, I just want to conquer the craziness …”
Do you ever feel like your life is out of control? Like you have so much to do you can’t even think straight? Burdened by constant work and an endless to-do list? Overwhelmed by the stress of trying to do everything well but starting to feel like you don’t care anymore?
I’ve been there … and sometimes slide back there. It’s not fun and it’s not how God wants us to live. When we look at the way Jesus lived, He is our shining example of Someone who glided through life peacefully. Now, please don’t misunderstand me. His daily life wasn’t marked by peace and tranquility … but He Himself was. Though Jesus regularly faced hardships, sorrows, and challenging circumstances, He exuded a calm confidence that didn’t coincide with His life’s demands.
So how did He do it?
That, my friend, is the question we’ll seek to answer in future weeks. We’ll come to understand through Jesus’ example that there are seven principles He consistently implemented. And in so doing, He has shown us all how to really live:
With purpose. In confidence. At peace.
Please join me on the fourth Tuesday of each month as I share these principles. Let’s conquer the craziness together and find God’s order for our hectic lives.
” … God is not a God of confusion but of peace …” (1 Corinthians 14:33)
