Confusion doesn't have much to offer to us spiritually. There are days when my mind feels like those tangled branches in my photo. If I don't get enough sleep, or have been too busy, I just cannot seem to focus on Truth.
Today I spent time at a Women's Bible study, time at the office, time in my garden, and time outside walking. Each activity had a clear purpose and there was no confusion as to what was expected out of me. Hearing from Him throughout the day is calming and reassuring. I feel grateful for the days of purpose. I even feel grateful for the errors I make from time to time because they bring me closer to Truth.
Seeing these branches in our yard reminded me that I don't want my mind or my relationships or our ministry to be tangled and confused. I want clarity. I want purpose. And I want peace in all of those areas.
My prayer is to embrace the role of Truth seeker each day.
And may confusion stay far far away from me.
