We have so many things in our lives which cause confusion. We try to decide which college to attend – who to marry – how many children to have – where to live – what our goals are. Everything can become a challenge to our mental state at times.
I believe that confusion creates solutions and that most of our problems can be solved in one way or another. We may never move mountains, but we can re-distribute a pile of dirt. We might not achieve great monetary success in life, but we have many opportunities to succeed. The world will never be at complete peace, but we can do something personally to create peace in someone’s mind or bring the comfort of God’s promises to those whose minds are at unrest.
Confusion will spawn imagination – imagination thrives on creativity. I am a creative person and I’m also married to one. It usually takes my mind a while to catch up to his entrepreneurial ideas, but I have learned to trust his thinking, even when I don’t get it.
When we become overwhelmed by confusion, we need to turn that befuddlement over to the One who created the earth, the universe and all that’s in it. He can make sense out of chaos. He has all the answers. He will set us on the right course.
Right now it may seem that you are facing complete disorientation. When the storm is over, you will see God’s hand in it. You will someday realize that all of this had a purpose for the final outcome. God knows what He’s doing.
“I’m not confused, I’m just well mixed.” Robert Frost
