Our beautiful, chaotic mess

Chatting with Dave Brown of Austin, TX, via Facebook re: Chaos vs. Order, Dave brought up a great point;that what we perceive to be chaotic and disorderly may be from our perspective and not God's. What we see as a chaotic mess, God is making into something beautiful.

What we have here in Troy NY,aka, the mission field God has sent us to, often seems like a chaotic mess. I am trusting (no, I'm convinced) that God is molding and shaping our chaotic mess into something beautiful, in His eyes that is, and in the eyes of those who are seeing from God's perspective. I guess, as Dave Brown alluded to, it's really a matter of whose lens you're looking through.
