When you become distracted with life and from the things that God wants you to do, basically what follows is CHAOS... Your mind becomes disturbed, there is disorder, division, tumult, madness, craziness, divertion, dissension, disagrement, really a total chaos of your mind and life...
In this CHAOS and confusion you can easily loose your way and it becomes very hard to make the right decisions for your life spiritual or other wise, and little by little and before you know whats happening you have gone from distraction to confusion to a HORRIBLE chaos that can easily keep your eyes AND ears close to the voice of God!
So in all the craziness that is going on in your mind you have a hard time hearing the voice of God, His voice becomes clouded and eventually unheard in all your confusions and all the "noise" in your life...
This is the life of a DISTRACTED person... With this you are confused, upset, LOST!!!
BUT even here in this place of confusion, distraction and craziness; what is really AMAZING is that throughout all this ever present even if just in the background of your crazy life... JESUS is still there!!!!
His everlasting MERCY is still there.... calling, calling, calling your name! HE DOES NOT GIVE UP! (for the calling of God is without repentance) even throughout all the chaos God will make a way! In all your confusion, God WILL come and help you out of that place of distraction!!!
CHAOS: A state of utter confusion and disorder...
-God is NOT a god of confusion and disorder, He has a plan for everything, there is no confusion in Him, there is no disorder in Him, There is NO chaos in Him!!!
BUT there is LOVE, PEACE, JOY, HAPPINESS, ETERNAL LIFE.... And it's ALL in Him...
Thank you JESUS... I love Him soooo much & I thank Him for this revelation!
