Peace is a beautiful thing, like truly amazing.
Peace will have you skipping outside even when there is complete chaos happening in your world. Peace is not a fairytale feeling that you wish for and it magically appears. – “NO SIREE BOB”!!! (Lol) It comes and stays when you put your complete trust in the Almighty Father God. It’s about having that childlike faith. Now if you have ever experienced childhood trauma and abuse then trusting anyone and especially God will not come easy. Yet. I am here to tell you, that it can be done. Start by getting to know God as Father first, and spend time developing your own personal relationship with him. Also if you have not done this already, accept Christ as your Lord and Savior to begin a new way of life- rooted in Love, Freedom, and Healing.
[(2 Corinthians 5:17) KJV”Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (new life begins).]
Next up is changing/shifting your focus. When you set your attention on being positive even when things don’t go as planned, you are setting yourself up to receive peace. You see, peace and trusting God means you don’t have to have it all figured it because you know God has it figured out for you. As a matter of fact, he’s already factored in every mishap, misunderstanding, and misdirection that could possibly happen. Do you think you lo0sing your job took him by surprise? Nope! Do you think, he was taken by surprise when your significant other walked out on you? Again, NOPE! Now granted you may feel like if God already knew these things were going to happen then why didn’t he prevent them or warn you so you could forego the pain and heartbreak? Well, in some cases he may have told you it was time for a change, that person wasn’t the one, or it’s time to move on. Even if you didn’t get a “Gut feeling”, God still will make a way for it ALL to work out for good according to his will and purpose for your life.
[Romans 8:28 NLT] 28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.]
Just remember a lot of times when things don’t work out or people are removed it is indeed for our good, even if we refuse or can not see it that way because we are too hurt. So, moving forward when you find yourself in a space where your peace is compromised, ask yourself this: Do I trust God?
