The Chaplains Corner

The Chaplains Corner

Guest blogger, Chaplain Paul, is one of the most effective chaplains in America today. He is an emergency responder to every situation.

Hey, this is the Chaplain again.

Do these words sound familiar to you?
Chaos. Clutter. Confusion.
Do these words describe your life sometimes? They do mine. We live in a world that is more and more chaotic - and unless we are very careful, very prayerful, we will find ourselves caught up in that frenzy. Romans 12:2 says,
"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, that which is good and pleasing and perfect."
Ephesians 4:23 says it this way,
"Let God change the way you think."
And how about Psalm 46:10; where the Lord says,
"Calm down (be still), and learn that I am God!"
We all need to be reminded of that. I have always been blessed and inspired by what David prayed in Psalm 51:10. And I really like the way it's translated in the 'Message';
"God, make a fresh start in me, shape a 'Genesis week' from the chaos of my life."
Do you feel like you need a fresh start - maybe a 'do over'? That's what God is all about - fresh starts, new beginnings, and forgiveness.
