Peace that surpasses all understanding:

Does the kind of peace that radiates joy from the inside out seem out of your grasp? Do you see others living with an unexplainable joy and wonder how they have it and how to get it for yourself? You have to train your mind to focus on the positive. When a negative thought enter your mind replace it with a positive thought. Philippians 4:7 tells us “then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” It is true. You can live with the kind of peace that surpasses all understanding, but you might have to retrain your mind to reach that level of peace.

Everyone goes through hard times. I am not talking about pretending everything is okay or not allowing yourself to get down when faced with hard and difficult circumstances. I am talking about the peace that comes from knowing that no matter what comes against me I know I can face it with God’s help. I am talking about a KNOWING that even through trials and tribulations there is an inner peace that resides inside of you that tells you I will get through this.

I have faced many struggles in my life and there have been times when I thought this is it. This is the worth thing I have ever faced, and I don’t want to do this anymore, but then a knowing from deep inside always reminds me there is ALWAYS light at the end of the tunnel. Tomorrow is a new day. JUST HOLD ON! And no matter what I have faced it has always gotten better. Maybe not right away, but it does always get better. Things seems to get better faster and easier now that I have learned to cast my troubles on the Lord. I have an understanding that when things don’t go my way it is because God closed that door and has something else in store for me. Even in the middle of a struggle if I get down or frustrated it doesn’t take long for that tranquil feeling to take over and remind me that this too shall pass.

I feel like my life’s mission is to help others. To provide motivation and inspiration in what can sometimes feel like a very dark world. It doesn’t have to feel lonely. There are people out here that care about others even if I don’t know you, your circumstances, we have different faiths or religions. None of that matters to me. I love people because God created them. I know there are so many people struggling in solitude and my heart breaks for them. I wish more people struggling in life would reach out for help. I wish more people would turn to God so he can feel you with the kind of peace that surpasses our human understanding. He will if you will ask Him.
