Peaceful Chaos

This morning, while working out in my garage, I was brought to my knees. Not because the weight I was lifting was too heavy but because of the song on the radio. The words that pierced my heart were from “Whatever You’re Doing” by Sanctus Real:

Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but somehow there’s peace
You’re up to something bigger than me
Larger than life, something heavenly

I’ve found it difficult to talk or even pray about what the Lord has been doing in my heart after reading “Radical” by David Platt. My cozy Christian world has been turned upside down. God has shown me that being a follower of Jesus is more about sacrifice than comfort. Much more about serving others than doting on self.

I feel as if parts of my life are being stripped away. It’s as if God is asking me, “Am I enough? If you have nothing else, am I enough?”

As I fell to my knees in worship this morning, I was finally able to release the confusion that has been swirling around inside of me and receive God’s peace. My heart cried out, “Yes, Lord! You are enough. You are more than enough. You’re all that I need!”

God is up to something. I don’t know what exactly, but I do know this to be true: Whatever He’s doing is larger than life and much, much bigger than me.
