Quiet Peace………..

I have heard a great number of people say that peace is a nice idea, but an impossible one. I beg to differ. I believe that world peace, inner peace, is extremely feasible. However, to achieve this, it will take hard work, flexibility, and a great deal of open-mindedness. These three things are in very short supply in this world.

Peace of mind is one of those instants in life that are hard to describe, but easy to know. We all know the sensation. In those fleeting instants, there are no doubts, anxieties, or cares. For a flash, life is totally under modification. It is a sensation that we all wish in life, but it is few, far between, and brief. At least it seems that way.

“Freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions.”

It all surprises with the basic desire to be satisfied. Everybody wants to be happy. Even if someone privileges they want to be unhappy, seeking that unhappy state really makes them happy.

Joy cannot occur without peace. In fact, echo on happy instants will also present peace. Happiness cannot openly coincide with chaos, making peace of mind dangerous. If it seems like they overlap, dig deeper and they will begin to distinguish.

Since pleasure cannot occur in a state that without peace, it is serious that a mindset of peace be recognised in our lives. Another reason why peace of mind is invaluable is our sole chance to change our boldness. When things are going unwell, we still have the aptitude to keep a positive approach. Of course, no positive approach can be shown without adopting peace of mind. Charles R. Swindoll’s quote concerning our approach still rings very true:

“I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our attitudes.”

Do you want to have peace? Then be grateful!!! Gratitude heightens quality of life

A large body of recent work has suggested that people who are more grateful have higher levels of  subjective well-being. Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives and  social relationships. Grateful people also have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self-acceptance. Grateful people have more positive ways of coping with the difficulties they experience in life, being more likely to seek support from other people, reinterpret and grow from the experience, and spend more time planning how to deal with the problem. Grateful people also have less negative coping strategies, being less likely to try to avoid the problem, deny there is a problem, blame themselves, or cope through substance use. Grateful people sleep better, and this seems to be because they think less negative and more positive thoughts just before going to sleep.

Of all the things you have done,
Of all the things that’s going through your mind
Of all the mountains, challenge, obstacles in life that tends us to give in
Try to stop thinking about them
Take a moment to think nothing but think about how Jesus died on the cross for you
Feel the air, hear the bird chirping, and you will know how valuable HIS children are
In him you will find peace, an everlasting peace
A peace where there is no noise of war
A peace with freedom
A peace of joy
Seek his kingdom

     “God is not an author of confusion but of peace” 1 cor 14:33

  1. Thanks for sharing this. Peace is an attitude I think. I wrote poems nearly every day since losing my Dad and wrote this one entitled Peace in his memory…

    Thanks for this. Peace is an attitude I think. My Dad taught me this. He sadly passed away a year ago and I wrote this poem in his memory in case you have time to have a look?
