Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink, or use drugs when stressed; I write.
Today, so many are so stressed that they are struggling with a tremendous amount of weight on their shoulders. The pressure is so great combined with the stress that it has people emphasizing about the prospect of tomorrow.
The pressure of life has a way of affecting everyone. Only, it affects some in an enormous way that the amount of weight tends to drain every last drop of all their positive energy.
The stressful outlook on life exhausts you so much, to the point that even if we are waiting to find real peace, it still has the propensity to become more like trying to find a way to escape a hot, dried up desert.
We all need inner peace to have happiness in our lives. You don't have to be sad, we all have the ability to obtain inner peace, a life without anxieties, stress or worries.
To find inner peace, we must be able to reject the thoughts that we do not want, close the doors that cause us pain, and suffering and open the ones that will bring love, and inner peace that is found in Jesus Christ.
So many workers tend to put in long hours trying to gain the wants in their lives, not having a work/life balance. And like many things that are easy to overlook some don't make enough time for the family. When you strive to raise children and trying to acquire an impressive career you find yourself consumed with too much on your plate.
Sometimes, after slaving long hours, still, the money just doesn't seem enough, and it's those times that we worry about not having enough income to make ends meet.
My life is a very busy one, being a single mother pushes me to work long hours. Raising a family alone isn’t an easy mission, and sometimes the stress and demands that come with it take its toll on me.
But, due to the surplus of stress in many everyday lives, a lot of people tend to worry about things that they cannot change. Except for today, we all should start a new chapter in our life.
A division, which requires you to stop stressing and release the depressing thoughts, I did and so should you, close the door that causes pain, anger, and suffering and opens the ones that will bring inner peace found in Jesus Christ.
There are many ways to find inner peace and happiness. I found peace by letting go of the past and accepting the fact that life is one big journey of constant learning.
Also, I gave the time to seek comfort through Christ which played a tremendous step towards achieving my inner peace.
The stress of this world can become too much for any one person to bear, the condition is associated with a long list of physical and mental conditions. When the stress becomes too much it has a way of supplying pressure that will push you down. Some people know how to endure and overcome to find inner peace.
Signs and symptoms of Inner Peace: when a person shows the ability to act accordingly, rather than worry based on life's challenges:
- He or She refuses to be jealous or judge another person
- He or She shows an extraordinary ability to appreciate each day.
- He or She refuses to stress.
- He or She is overwhelmed with thankfulness.
- He or She experience a constant feeling of joy.
When a person takes the time to find great pleasure in learning extraordinary things, enjoying the company of good friends, having long walks with their significant other, and spending time with family, sports or doing any outdoor adventures, he or she has established a way to experience inner peace and found happiness.
Inner peace can be truly acquired if we have complete faith and belief in God. When we return to God, we will be able to correct the mistakes made that will give us total satisfaction and calmness.
Let us remember that peace is not the absence of trouble but the presence of Christ. Without the remembrance of the Lord, there is no peace. Verily, God tests people through virtue and vice. If they do positive things through their test, they can seek His blessings, and they will find inner peace and happiness with Him.
While being tested, if people have a negative mindset and engage in activities that are against His teachings, you will not be able to find inner peace, as it will only come to them if they return to the Lord for guidance and help. Therefore, positivity is their inner peace and negativity are their restlessness and total dissatisfaction.
When we are faced with various challenges, we tend to forget that the sun always shines after a rainy day. We also need to bear in mind that the positive and right doing leads to an official state of mind.
When faced with problems, patience, and courage is the strategy that leads to a sustainable solution. What makes us feel uncomfortable and unsettled? This question can be solved by bearing in mind the fact that faith and total obedience to God are the keys to success in people's life. The more committed to God's compliance, we are, the more peace we will find.
When you read through the Bible scriptures, it clearly explains that God loves those who are His children. It doesn't state his children won't encounter trouble. In fact, in John 15:20 KJV we're promised troubles for the very reason that we serve Christ.
John 15:20 (King James Version, KJV) Remember the word that I said unto you, the servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also
Have you ever wondered is it possible to be happy in this world? Especially since a lot of people aren't happy. Many are not happy because they don't know real happiness, according to the Bible.
Most people living in this evil world feel happiness comes from pleasing themselves. That is not so true. The Bible is a Biblical key to happiness. God gives his children the ability to find joy in measure as they submit to and start practicing His way.
I can write this because I too was stressed, overspending, worrying and trying to fit in a world where there is NO acceptance. A place where inner peace has a limit discovery in an ungrateful and wicked society.
I know communities belong to all walks of life; I am not saying Inner peace cannot be found, but it comes with repentant to those who are in need of inner peace. It doesn't matter as to whether they are poor or wealthy, it does not value at all.
Therefore, when a person set out to seek inner peace it helps for one to remind him or herself that wealth will not give them the lead way to find inner peace and that the money, they process in this world does not turn or evolve to the point of purchasing happiness.
It's easy to take a moment to sit and read about how big the world is and all the stress and problems that are present on the earth today. You will find that the rich and the have-nots are not confirmed to peace and happiness. Both will continue to be in search of inner peace and joy the same way, which can be found in Jesus Christ.
How to find inner peace:
- Put all worries and stress in God's hand
- Acceptance of other behavior, belief, and look
- Limit confusions. Close all doors that cause pain, anger, and suffering
- Accept things we cannot change in life
- Practice forgiveness. Pardon all past hurtful thing that makes us angry
- Stop overworking and begin enjoying life
- Simplify the best way possible by eliminating meaningless activities
- Find your purpose and skill in life and serve your purpose.
- Step out of a box and live life with an open mind.
When someone makes peace in their life to find happiness, they have let go of whatever issues that are hard to deal with and found the beauty in this world. God has assisted many in discovering peace so that they can maintain and is not affected by whatever happens in the world.
God will teach us that there are open windows of opportunity for us to live a life of complete comfort against life's cruel domination. If someone also lacks this precious bounty from God, they should allow Him to guide in handling his or her worry and anxiety.
Some people hold on to hatred and fail to forgive. Inner peace can be reached when one allows him or herself to practice forgiveness. Plus, when something is missing, and it is the inner peace, it will never come your way unless you strive for it. To eat something means people need to open their mouth; with the mouth shut, nothing will go in or down to the stomach.
Similarly, when something is missing, people are required to search for the solution. Moreover, if this is the inner peace that is missing, then all our efforts lie in trusting God with a mind positively and negating all the evil forces that can deviate our mind from the path leading to durable inner peace and happiness.
Men need to focus on the cause of their lack of inner peace and happiness. They need to search for the right path, the exact direction that leads them to the road to inner peace, which is obedience and faith in Christ.
Naturally, inner peace and abundant pleasure are within your reach at this very moment. From the entire unsophisticated situation to the most complicated circumstances, you bump into, you'll learn that every experience is trying to teach you something.
After years of stressing, you merely choose to end suffering and moving forward. The anticipation of seeking inner peace, when you learn to close the doors that cause pain, anger, and suffering and open the ones that will bring you love, and inner peace, you will have found the inner peace you are so in search of which is found in Jesus Christ.
