CHAOS 1: Stressed
God holds your future, so you can focus on the present.

Proverbs 21:31; 1 Peter 5:7

What stresses you out? Is it school? Work? Money? Relationships? The Future? Everyone has something that tops the list for them. If we’re honest, we know that sometimes stress is helpful. It helps us to make deadlines and can motivate us to make wise choices. But there’s also a darker side, isn’t there? Left unchecked and unmanaged, our healthy stress can quickly turn into distress, making our lives feel chaotic, out of control and leaving us paralyzed. Maybe that’s why the Bible has so much to say about it. God knows that our tendency toward stress and anxiety isn’t His best for us, and through the wise advice found in Proverbs, He teaches us how to What God thinks is greater than what they think.

CHAOS 2: Approved
What God thinks is greater than what they think.

Proverbs 29:25

Relationships are complicated. Spouse. Girlfriends. Boyfriends. Parents. Grandparents. Boss. Teachers. Teammates. Friends. They all have the potential to stress us out. Whether it’s trying to impress your them, them happy or please those who never seem satisfied, we all feel the pressure to win other’s approval in some way.

And while it doesn’t make us immune to the pressure to impress others, it does provide a way out. A way to step out of the chaos that it brings to our lives and begin to move toward

CHAOS 3: Done
God values your presence over your performance.

Matthew 11:29-30

Many of us can relate to the problem of having too much to do. Between school, work, family, and friends, there always seems to be more on our list than we have time for. That’s why it can feel so discouraging to go to church and hear about how much more we should be doing in our relationship with God. Read the Bible. Serve in various ministries. Go on a mission’s trip. And do all of that while keeping a good attitude, giving regularly, and a whole list of other things. It’s exhausting. And it can leave us feeling discouraged and distant, like God is continually disappointed in us. But what if this was never how He intended for us to live? In a conversation with His followers, Jesus painted a very different picture. And what He says has the power to change the way we see our to-do list and bring us closer to Him in the process.
