Day 335- Happiness in the Chaos

Day 335, I was presented with the concept of order and context.  The order and context I am referencing is the “Order” of my daily ramblings or in other words writings.  It was brought to my attention that I should organize and put in context my daily writing in order to provide a more cohesive format to my writing-

My response to this  was …  “Sure, I suppose I could put my writings in order or some context that will provide a sense of continuity to the flow of my daily ramblings, but why?

Would it be so that my writings can make a more organized statement to the individual reading it, or would it be so that my thoughts and feelings can formulate a more precise literary rendering?

The response I received was, “Well, yeah.”

I could not help but laugh and then giggle not at the person; moreover, at the thought of a deeper concept that the organization or cohesiveness of my so-called ramblings. 
Then I simply stated, “let me ask you this … are your days prearranged in a particular order to make more sense to you and others in your life?”  —“Are your feelings categorized by the day?”  —“Can you organize the events that transpire within a single day?”  –

“Wait do not answer that.”

Matthew 6:34
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

I can assure you I for one cannot.  I cannot strategically organize my feelings any more than I can rearrange the sequence of events in my life.  Yesterday will never be the same as today and I have no control of tomorrow, so why would I “Organize” my writings to reflect otherwise.

The events in my life change daily as each day falls away.  I encounter a new set of events and emotions at the onset of each new day.  This reason alone is why I leave my writings as they are and in the order in which they are written.

I cannot say I know one person who can honestly say every single day of their life is the same as yesterday.

Therefore, for now I will stay real in presenting the days as they come and hope that the person who is led to read my writings, (order or not) can see that life happens, we do not plan for it nor are we in control of it, it simply happens.  To help just one person to understand that he/she is not in control of the order in which we experience the events or emotions of our daily life; here in and of itself to me is the value.  

Moreover, no matter how diverse we are one from another we all still feel and experience emotions.  Now, maintaining happiness though the roller coaster of emotions is different for each one of us, yet obtainable if we seek it.

Matthew 7:7 (NIV, 2011).
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

For me, it is the application of biblical scripture coupled with God’s unconditional love, which enables me to feel and experience happiness.

            Psalm 16:11 (KJV, 2011).
            “You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy;
  At Your right hand are  pleasures forevermore.”
