Stillness Exists In Chaos

(Edited: February 20th, 2021) 

I remember her saying, “I really don’t want you two to be homeless.” Fear sinking its teeth into my heart.

I wrote during this past summer about how everything was swarming in front of me. So many fears about my husband getting out of the military, movers arriving in time, etc.

I wrote about it because I wanted that time to stand as a testimony for trusting God. I didn’t know what He was planning to do, but I believed He would do something. So in my weakness, I leaped trusting God’s hand.

He provided. All answers we needed happened within one week. But it would be a lie to say during that week I wasn’t doubting or fearful. I knew those were the moments faith was made, when you can’t see. I wanted to write about the before moments. Before God answered. Before I knew anything.

That was one of the longest weeks ever.

Each day held dread, yet, something remained strong.

That was the love Jesus Christ has for me.

It was remembering the promises scriptures encourages the believer with.

It was the comfort the Holy Spirit gave me, keeping His word He is the Comforter.

In the quiet moments when I was alone, I remembered His love against the darkness I felt.

I trembled against faith and fear. But I remember whenever I went to bed, God gave me a peace that surpassed all understanding. The nights I thought I would stay up, He gave me rest.

Even in our darkest moments, in the midst of chaos, He gives us a still peace.

We find it in prayer. We find it in worship. We find it in scriptures.

We see it in the glory of God.

He keeps His word. He will give us peace, even in chaos.

His name is Jesus.

  1. Such a great post and thank you for your openess and honesty. God has shown you that He never leaves you defenseless and without help.

    All of the provisions you needed were obtained in a week becuase He is The Provider.

  2. So beautiful and powerful!
    I knew those were the moments faith was made, when you can’t see. – Loved how you said this!
    I agree, it is the peace and some unshaken strength that is felt in the most shaky times that is a miracle at work.
