Chaos is the life that ensues when we confuse “get to” and “got to.”
This is a season of the year when we get to do some wonderful things. The problem is that we live in a culture where the things we get to do are often treated with disdain because we have got to do them.
Don’t let yourself fall into this mental and emotional trap. It is a joy killer.
The majority of your chaos is of your own choosing.
We choose to have kids in extra curricular activities, to shop for Christmas, to have the job we have, etc. it’s our chooses that cause our chaos.
Chaos cannot be controlled but it can be prevented.
The issue in making wise decisions is not simply what you decide but when you decide it. Are you making the right choices at the right times.
Read Ephesians 5:15-18. Great passage on time and how we use it. I will blog some more this month to dive further into choices and chaos in relation to time, money, relationships, and decisions.
