The theme of my life right now is calm in the chaos.
We live in a world that constantly puts us on edge.
Text messages, homework, tests, emails, to-do-lists, etc.
It is difficult to stay calm when pulled in a million different directions.
Yet, we are called to calmness.
One of my favorite quotes by St. Padre Pio is
“I recommended calm and calm all the time.”
In order to hear the voice of God and do His will, we must be calm.
Trying to live a life on the narrow path while being pulled in a million directions is about as easy as doing math homework in a crowded subway. Sure, it can be done, but eventually, you are going to miss a calculation and end up with a very wrong answer.
Christ leads us to calmness through His words.
He reminds us that in Him we have the rest we need.
I encourage you all today to continue seeking a calm attitude.
You are called to remain calm in the chaos like Peter walking to Christ on the water.
All you must do is have faith.
