is it just my imagination (or melodramatic tendancies), or is there a direct correlation between your closeness to God and the chaos of life? It seems that the deeper and more intimate my relationship with Him becomes, the more drama and difficulty insues. The more internal peace, the more external struggle. Like the eye of a hurricane, the center is still and peaceful, but on all sides, destructive winds and rain swirl.

is it just my imagination?

what a great question. Many stories in the bible came to mind when reading your post. The wind that began when Peter stepped out of the boat, the confusion of the disciples as their Lord was lead to the cross. But your question also reminded me of the story of Joseph in the Old Testament and his almost unbelievable faithfulness. His external life was one nightmare after another but he was in the complete center of Gods will, not only for his own life, but Gods will for Israel was hinged upon him. How cool is that?

Definitely not your imagination, Stef. I have noticed this too. The enemy just never gives up. He's just too stupid to realize that his antics sometimes drive us to God instead of the direction he's hoping we go.
