When the World Feels Like Chaos

I’m guest posting today over at Abide. Here’s a teaser of the article I wrote based on some of the things I’ve been thinking and feeling over the past week:


We’re swimming in noise. Scratch that—we’re drowning in it.

The voices, the opinions, the breaking news, the he said/ she said. It all serves to hype and excite, to keep us clicking and scrolling. And even when we sign off, the world still seems to spin in chaos.

Chaos breeds fear. Fear drives out peace.

And then what?

Is peace so elusive, so flighty and frail?

I think no.

It was the shepherds, the ones with dirt-lined fingernails and threadbare clothes, who saw light blaze through the darkness in the middle of their night shift. The angel army came to proclaim the name of God in heaven and claim peace on earth.

That peace is titanium strong, and it hasn’t gone anywhere.

So, how do we find it and feel it?
