Remember the Chaos

A person without self-control is like a house with its doors and windows knocked out. Proverbs 25:28

  • Control limits us but it is necessary. An out-of-control life is open to all sorts of attacks by the enemy. Think of self-control as a wall for defense and protection.

Time and time again I have sat in meetings and heard people talk about the ‘insanity’ I want to talk today about the chaos.

The chaos of waking in the morning and having to drink just to go to work. The chaos of working out what stories to make up for being late home because I had stopped at the pub, and sometimes having spent all my wages.

You know addicts are clever people. We can come up with excuses in an instant, justify the worst behavior without batting an eye-lid.

  • Consider the chaos of your using and how you managed it.
  • Are you glad the chaos has stopped?

God doesn’t stir us up into confusion; he brings us into harmony. 1 Corinthians 14:33

I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left–feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught. John 14:27

Nothing, you see, is impossible with God.”Luke 1:37

Prayer: God let me put some order into my chaos today.
