When I Finally Found Peace in this Chaotic World – John 16:33

Years ago when life was busy and loud, I barely noticed the whisper.
But in the silent moments, I’d sit there with tears in my eyes,
an unsteadiness in my soul, and ask, is this it? Is this all there is?
Am I just supposed to study so I can go to a good college so I can get a great job
so I can get married and help support a family and then go on a few vacations,
pay taxes, play with grand-kids and then …die?
Maybe a *tad* morbid but unfortunately,
not too far from the truth of many.

It wasn’t until I understood my need for a relationship with my Creator that the deep thirst in me was quenched.
No longer was he some far off, mystical entity called “the universe.”
He was up close and personal, in my life, and making moves.
I find my identity in Jesus not because I’m “religious” or “finding my truth.”

I find my identity in God because He touched the heart of this 18 year old Indian girl from Coppell, Texas
and changed her life in ways she never could have imagined.
He lifted her out of a life she knew was missing something,
and continues to make her the woman she never thought she could be.
Life is still busy and loud, but even so, my heart is at peace.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart!
I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33

“There is no greater discovery than seeing God as the author of your destiny.” – Ravi Zacharias
