It seems like there’s so much to worry about sometimes, doesn’t it?
Maybe you’re facing a bunch of different trials right now. Or maybe you’re dealing with one big complex crisis. Then suddenly–something else comes up–then maybe another thing on top of that. The next thing you know you are in the middle of total chaos, and nothing seems to make sense at all.
One important thing to remember is that you can only process so many things at a time. So prioritize and focus on one task. If you have no idea which issue is most important, just tackle them one at a time, then move on.
In many cases, you’ll have to accept imperfect, incomplete, or even risky situations during chaos. But be brave and accept your limitations. Don’t get paralyzed. Stay focused. Advance on one problem at a time.
In chaotic times, it’s especially hard to stop and pray. But it’s super important to never give up on this. Your time with God will give you strength, peace, and clarity to make better decisions. He might even reveal answers to make things easier for you.
The most important benefit though is that by taking the time to commune with God, your trust in him grows. And your life will show the fruits of that trust.

Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
2 Corinthians 4:7
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
PRAYER FOR HELP DURING CHAOTIC TIMES
O merciful Lord,
Everything seems to be whirling around me. So many things in movement, I can’t get my bearings. And worry eats away at me.
Where are you O Lord?
Let me stop now. Breathe.
May your Spirit bring me calm. Stop my mind from racing. Cast out the enemy far from me, in the name of Jesus Christ, my King.
May I rest knowing I cannot control everything. You alone are sovereign over all things.
I place my trust in you, O Lord.
Help me set priorities, based on wisdom, mercy & love. And no matter what may come, keep me sharp and steady.
I know who my Savior is. I know he will come again. That’s all I need to keep going.
Grant me your heavenly grace.
For you alone are holy. You alone are the Lord.
In Jesus name,
