Decently and in Order

I've been thinking a lot lately. Thinking about order...and chaos. Life always tends towards chaos but I believe that our God is a God of Order. He brought order to the worlds...and brought order out of the chaos of nothingness. I believe that my life being well ordered honors him because it brings peace and calm with it...and that is what I've truly been striving and praying and struggling towards with every fiber of my being of late. I want to let my adornment be that of the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit which in God's sight is very precious. (1 Peter 3:4)

So order...order helps me have a gentle and quiet spirit...if I know what's next...if I know where things are...if my home is beautiful and brings me peace...it's much easier to have a quiet and gentle spirit and I believe that is directly related to our God of order.

That said...I am a mother of three very small children and God is constantly reminding me that His is also the God of Interruptions. I have to remember that what I see as an interruption or distraction from the task at hand was ordained by God before the foundation of the worlds...more than likely to teach me something...show me some way to more fully enjoy Him and to better reflect Him to my children.

So tomorrow...tomorrow will be a day of order...full of interruptions...all to the glory of God.

(sorry no pictures today it's too late.)

Just out of curiosity- did you crawl inside of my head & heart? ;) Girl, I can so relate and agree with this. It's a constant struggle for me to find a balance between the two. Trying to allow the interruptions without being crabby about them "messing up" my order...constantly praying for grace & wisdom on that. Thanks for posting this!

I found your blog through color me daisy and I was so blessed to see that you love JESUS! I appreciate your post. I have two small/young children too and I am constantly transferring from a moment of peace to ordained interruptions :) I love your desire to be where and when the Lord want you to. That is mine as well! Keep serving and loving our KING! Your a shining light for HIM! Blessings!
