amid the crazy

{found via pinterest}

for most people summer is a crazy time. this summer that statement could not possibly be more true for our family. no, we're not at the place in our family where summer means the kids are home when they're normally at school and our whole world gets entirely upended in that sense. however, this summer means buying a house, [hopefully] selling a house, and oh, right, having a baby in 11 weeks.

we closed on the new house today, our current house should be on the market within the next 10 days, and 11 weeks from tomorrow our daughter is scheduled to arrive. oh, and did i mention that the new house needs a bit of work?

okay, so every summer - every season for that matter - has its fair share of crazy. i'm sure your life includes its own. but what's the point?

the point is this: God is still God amid the crazy. God is still in control. he still holds the world together with his own two hands.

it's really easy to get caught up in the urgent, but unimportant things that smack us in the face everyday. it's really easy to put God on the back burner and let other things edge him out. but he still sits on the throne. he still reigns.

in this world we don't get any constants. everything changes all the time. even if we do things the same way everyday, we still grow and we still change just by virtue of the fact that we are finite beings in this life. if nothing else we get older.

but God is unchangeable and unshakable.
he is the great I AM.
he is the only constant.

may we not get so carried away by the craziness in our own lives that we forget who he is.
even amid the crazy.
