stability.




after looking at my planner this morning
and realizing how crazy the next week/two weeks/all summer is going to be,
with my robot brain from writing too many research projects,
I thought,
"this just seems like a mess."


because it's not just school
it's not just work
it's not just relationships.

as always in life, there's stuff going on in every sphere.

but, this brought some peace this morning:

In these last days, God has spoken to us in his son,
whom he appointed heir of all things,
through whom he also made the world. 
And he is the radiance of his glory 
and the exact representation of his nature,
and upholds all things by the word of his power. 

Hebrews 1:2-3


my stability doesn't come from my ability to juggle all of this stuff.
Christ can uphold me in the midst of my mess,
in midst of my pain,
in the midst of confusion. 
my ability to make it through these weeks, and through life in general,
is totally dependent on his upholding all things
by the word of his power. 



and he loves me.

  1. I just listened to a sermon on our stability in Christ and how we're to trust that he indeed is who he says he is! Praise the Lord for comfort amongst chaos!
