1 Corinthians 14:33 – For God is not a God of disorder but of peace – as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.
So many decisions.
So many worries.
So many thoughts swirling inside your head.
When your mind is filled to the brim with decisions that need to be made, worries, and thoughts, confusion shows up and threatens to tip your boat over.
When you’re in a hurry or when you’re feeling overwhelmed by life, all the expectations and responsibilities, you can’t think. There’s so much pressure. You don’t know what to do.
Water begins to pour into your boat.
You bail the water out, but it’s not enough.
Then a wave towers over you and floods your boat.
How do you stop the confusion? Life can be hard. And with life comes change. You might not want to change. But if you’re in a storm of confusion, change may be your ticket out of the storm and back onto the shore where you can ground your thoughts and take that deep breath and find peace.
You may need to write down what you’re confused about. You might even want to read what you wrote out loud. Or maybe you need to take a break and focus on something else for a while.
Huffpost.com in their article, “4 Ways to Find Direction When you are Feeling Confused,” gives us some ways to let go of confusion and find joy again. First, accept where you are, then take a deep breath, focus on what you know instead of what you don’t know and be patient.
And if you seek God, he will help you make it to shore safely. For God is not a God of confusion and disorder but of peace.
