Complete Chaos

“Everyone has inside them a piece of good news. The good news is you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is.” -Anne Frank

 

{tumult:// highly distressing agitation of mind or feeling; turbulent mental or emotional disturbance}

 

Future plans. Comparisons. Triggers. Hurtful past. Sadness. It all filled her head. A bombardment of information. Where was she to begin? How do I break this down? Do I write or pray? Or do I just need to be still?

 

Her blinders are up and the negativity swarms like a mass of bees. She is consumed by what her life might fail to be. The voice of the young girl’s evil monster was shouting louder than ever. Feeding her continuous fabrications and mendacity. They wouldn’t stop. There’s a deep pain in her heart. It’s as if she is suffocating. Her physical body decaying in response to her lack of healthy emotional well being. She’s stuck in a whirlwind similar to the tazmanian devil. Shutting down seems like a reasonable option but there’s a part inside of her not wanting to go back into that devious black hole. The fight was still in her.

 

Emotional mind must be shut off and this swirling energy flipped around. The young girl knows she can’t do this alone. Each time she has attempted to fight alone she’s failed miserably. Her higher power was in control. The young girl needed to fully release the monster and allow Jesus to do His mighty work. That tiny ounce of fight was her trust. She needed more prayer and less worry. More scripture reading and less mindless talking. The young girl crosses a scripture that boldly catches her eye…

 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

   neither are your ways my ways,”

declares the Lord.

“As the heavens are higher than the earth,

   so are my ways higher than your ways

   and my thoughts than your thoughts.”  Isaiah 55:8-9

 

Rereading this passage, she encrypts it into her mind. Each word uniquely soaking into her heart. She feels comforted and a sense of relief. Her father is with her wherever she goes. Let His voice be louder than the monsters. Allow His compassion and love outweigh her own troubled thoughts. Jeremiah 29:11 reminds the young girl that Jesus has a beautiful plan for her life. The chaos will soon slide away and be gently replaced with hope and prosperity.

 

Matthew 28:20 “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of age.”
