I’ve been telling my daughters about the phenomenon that every system naturally moves towards chaos. It’s true! It’s true! Without applying some organizational pressure to our systems–environment, work, emotions, body, spiritual life–we move towards chaos.
As I note how, in just one day, I see piles of books and papers and early signs of disruption, I think about what it takes to put things in the proper place, declutter, and reset the space each new day.
I think about applying pressure to the system when choosing to daily exercise, compose a gratitude journal and spend time with God in His word, or simply organizing the pantry.
It’s part of daily life to resist chaos and apply pressure to create order, beauty, harmony, and peace.
