Quotes about drama on social media are everywhere, and seen all the time. A person who continuously over-reacts has a way of sucking the energy right out us!
Out of all the catch phrases that are popular these days about drama, one of my favorites is “Maturity starts when drama ends”, but I would say, “Drama ends as maturity grows”. Maturity is not always ushered in by age, and there is a big difference between someone who simply lacks maturity or experience and someone who purposefully chooses not to mature, but to be a “Drama Queen” instead.
Drama occurs when someone believes everything that happens to them, no matter what it is, falls into the worst category possible and as a result their whole world is in jeopardy or has shut down! If you are a child, this is natural and is expected. Everything an adult may consider little, a child might consider big, as it is the first time they have ever experienced that sort of thing!
There comes a point, however, as we begin to grow older and have experienced more of life, that we are expected to make a natural transition into a broader understanding of crisis severity levels and how our personal situation fits into them.
No matter if you see yourself as a Drama Queen, as a person just lacking maturity in some areas, or as someone caught in between, I have good news!
“Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:12-13)
True maturity has its roots in being spiritually grounded in a relationship with Jesus Christ. There-in lies the real answer to every question we will ever have, every mystery, every pain that needs healing, every problem that needs solved.
Truth: You and I were created for fellowship with Him!
I challenge you to see your problems from a different perspective, from a Godly perspective. Not so much as one who is seeking continually the blessings of His hands and never discovering the amazing glory and treasure of walking in His presence, but as one who desires to truly know God and to circumstances from His point of view.
“For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope” – Jeremiah 29:11.
Psalms 4:8 says “In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for Thou alone, O Lord, dost make me to dwell in safety.”
You can trust in Jesus Christ. As we put our trust in Christ and keep our eyes focused on Him, He becomes a safe harbor for every crisis level we face, providing us with a calm internal serenity that only comes through relationship with Him. You can trust that everything which appears bad in your life, He will work out to good.
