Wow! Where have the last three months gone?
It seems just like yesterday we started our Keeping It Real in the Chaos session! How are you doing with that? Are you keeping time with GOD REAL? Are you able to find Him in the piles of laundry; the endless carpool lines; in the dirty, messy, stickiness of life?
We are praying you are! We are praying we are! It is a challenge and we recognize that, but we also recognize that when He is our first love all the chaos is less chaotic. No, it doesn’t always go away sweet sister, but it can be consumed by God’s peace. His wonderful peace.
What is ruling your heart today? Peace or chaos.
The world or Jesus?
Let’s look back at our focal verses for fall:
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:15-17
All this time, these verses have been preparing us for Thanksgiving!
Peace and thankfulness.
Gratitude and Joy.
We pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Not just the day itself. A never-ending season in your heart! A heart ruled by the peace of Christ! Be thankful friends! Sing from the rooftops. Trust that even in the chaos of life God’s peace can overcome whatever life is throwing at you. And give thanks. Give thanks. Be grateful.
