Chaos can come in our lives from many different angles. Whether it is from school, college applications, fights with the parents, gossip or a devastating break up chaos can come out of nowhere and really knock us down. The good news is that we are not alone in our chaos. While we can’t always control the chaos around us but we can trust the One who is always in control.
