Is the stuff around you driving you crazy? Romans 8:18-22

Good morning everyone,
Stuff can be defined in a number of different ways, but here I'm referring to all the clutter in your life!  Unless you realize that God allowed that clutter, you may miss the boat with why He allowed it.  God is in the business of making lemonade out of lemons!  The more complicated things are and the more confusing things get, the more we need to trust the One who allowed it!  Why?  Because then a miraculous chain of events will take place!  His light will shine when it doesn't make sense how the situation has a chance of resolution!  God reveals things to us as He sees we are ready for answers.  Don't always expect to know the answers; just maybe He knows you are not ready for it!  Instead of getting frustrated the next time you run late, whether it be your fault or not, ask God to reveal to you how He wants you to respond.  Remember the world is looking at you under a microscope to see how you as a Christian are going to respond to life's issues!  When we respond like Jesus would, the impact can have a domino effect for the kingdom.  In other words, when we kill the enemy with kindness; when we respond with likeness of Christ, others are drawn to that type of solution.  So when we don't respond like Christ; when we respond to road rage with road rage, we respond like the world sees everyday.  Be different and show the world that your stuff is His stuff!!! 
Your brother in Christ,
