With change there is always chaos. Whether the change is good or bad comes chaos.
My husband and I recently bought our first home. This was a true blessing for us , but the change has been chaotic.
I am packing and unpacking while working a full time job. I am trying to put stuff where I think we both would want it. It’s is constantly cleaning…. I think I have spent more time cleaning the empty house than actually moving into it. Every day can seems chaotic but nothing seems to change.
I am slowly realizing Change isn’t always sudden. It can be a slow process. Sometimes a slow , painful process. In the midst of all the chaos we don’t usually see the end to all of it.
It can be so slow to reach your goal , because God is just taking you step by step… little by little. God does not want us to bite off more than we can chew. The reason God might not give us everything at once for that fact He DOES NOT want us to get overwhelmed!
But why do we still live chaotic lives you may ask? Maybe we shouldn’t ask why and ask who makes it chaotic?
The answer is… (drumroll)… we do!
Taking a step back is necessary! Everything that seemed so big becomes small when you take a step back.
One night I told my husband I don’t think I actually took a moment and enjoyed our new home. That following Saturday he and I did absolutely nothing and I felt great to rest in our new home. With changes in life it is important to rest and see what you have accomplish then looking at what you have to do doesn’t seem so much.
My biggest complaint in life is I NEVER have enough time! But why do we set time frames to everything? My husband asked “why I had to get everything done in one weekend ? It’s our home there is no time frame.”
We rush to get everything accomplish then complain when it doesn’t go our way. We set our own selves up for failure. We are not on our own time frame. We are on God’s.
“ But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” – Peter 3:8-9
