Having Peace When Life Goes CRAZY!

In keeping with His promise, we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.  2 Peter 3:13

Let's face it - our lives are CRAZY! We live in a society that forces us to split ourselves in so many directions with so many decisions that have to get made - daily! And living at that speed often causes us to have a sense panic. We start to worry about everything - often because we just are moving too fast to step back and see the big picture.

And then it happens - a crisis. Do we collapse in defeat because we have nothing left in our tanks and feel the problem is just too big for us?

But if you live in Him, He promises a life of abundance. And by living in Him I mean taking time to fill your tank daily on His word - His promises - His ways. When you do that each day and dark times hit (and they will) your first instinct will not be panic but rather it will be to turn to Him.  And by remembering His promises, you will have a sense of peace knowing He will work "it" out.  His goal is to guide you to God's eternal kingdom and so the answers He has may not always be what we thought should happen.  But by filling our tanks, we will be able to trust.
