This fellow storms into my office and was really distraught.
Distraught is an interesting word and not in wide use in people’s vocabulary these days.
It means “distracted; deeply agitated.”
This fellow definitely qualified. Tears, hysteria, hyperventilating, snorting, threatening… yeah, he was distraught. Why he was doesn’t matter; he was.
It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone. —Paul
So many claim to know this Jesus fellow; so few actually get it.
I merely assisted my unexpected guest to see the “designs for glorious living” that Jesus had for him, had always had for him. I simply pointed out that Jesus had “had his eye” on him, on him.
And everything changed. He left not distraught…
