Maybe your life is different than mine.
For some reason, things go as they should and everything just seems to fall into place.
But that’s not been my personal experience.
It’s not that I don’t try either. I try – try real hard – to solve problems, establish order, and generally keep up on stuff.
Yet I often have the sense that I’m in a little over my head. Sometimes even way over my head. And I simply can’t keep up with it all. Responsibilities, relationships, and hardships.
Then my heart starts doing funny things. It gets all twisty turvy. Upside down and slightly nauseous.
Fluttery and distressed.
But I’m telling you, I do not want to live that way.
And I’m almost certain that you don’t either.
Who wants to go through life always feeling a bit off-kilter?
Not me. Not you.
But did you know that God doesn’t want you to feel that way either? That His intention is for you to walk through life enjoying the kind of peace that doesn’t make any sense – given the circumstances.
But there it is somehow.
And nothing – and no one – can shake it.
I call it crazy peace and here’s how you can enjoy it too…..

If you missed last week’s Real Life on COURAGE, you can find it here. Here, I share how we all have something we fear, even if it seems silly, and how we can have courage by looking to God! If you’re in need of a little perspective shift on fear, you can watch that here.
Thank you for joining me here and sharing Real Life together! I’ll look forward to talking with you again next week!!
