Mini Sermon

Chaotic Peace

May 11, 2017

Did she really just associate chaos and peace in the same sentence? I

 

want you to understand that you read that correctly. I at one point was

 

shocked as well. I compared peace to an environment where chaos did

 

not exist and in that environment only serenity would be the only thing

 

present. In that existence there would be no frustration, confusion,

 

drama or delayed destinies and everything would fall in my lap as

 

planned. Quite honestly I learned about finding peace in the midst of it

 

all in the worst way. I just kept replaying these words that I can’t wait

 

to get out of this environment. I can’t wait until I get out of this chaotic

 

place. My destiny seemed to come to a halt. I had more drama than

 

some of these reality shows well wait a minute maybe not as much lol.

 

It was as if the noise of life was so loud and I just could not bear to hear

 

the sound anymore. I was praying to God to remove me from it and he

 

literally was directing me into it all while keeping me close to him but

 

even still there had to be some sort of understanding that needed to be

 

grasped to carry me through that season. I was in this space where

 

peace was unrecognizable. I will be brutally honest with you all, those

 

were some of the most frustrating times in my life. There was not a

 

sermon that could swoop me out of that funk neither inspirational

 

videos nor those quotes that you are bound to see when you log into

 

social media. I will even go further to admit that even the deepest of

 

scripture would not resonate in my spirit. Through much trial, prayer

 

and even in error I learned that peace is not the absence of chaos but

 

the presence of control knowing that no matter what surrounds you,

 

know that you will survive and things will work out for your good. Grab

 

hold of this in this season that trials and tribulations will arise and may

 

very well come around again a time or two, peace is available

 

regardless of whatever direction life flows.I want to leave you all with

 

this scripture that yet in that moment it was not registering but now as

 

I tread back down this road called memory lane with you it gives me

 

peace even now. John 14:27 (NIV)

 

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.I do not give as the world

 

gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
