“The power of a peaceful mind”
The truth can hurt you, or the truth can change you.
What will, the truth do to you?
The truth is, we won’t always get what we want. When situations have changed; screaming and shouting shouldn’t be our last resort. But, in humbleness and trust is where our strength comes from. Step back for a second and look closely, how am i reacting to my current situation? Are you playing the blame game on yourself? Or are you learning something from it?
Truth be told, What else can we offer ourselves other than “PEACE”. A peacefully mind puts order into our thinking. It gives us time to step back and realize what’s happening around us. Is it the will of God?
I believe that, sometimes our failures are a test from God to test, our attitude towards a situation. Failure exposes who we really are in Christ. Are we; weak in Christ, lukewarm in Christ or strong in Christ? “Think about it?”
You are always being tested. God constantly watches your response to people, problems, success, conflicts, illness, disappointment and even the weather! He watches the simplest actions such as when you open a door for others, when you pick up a piece of trash or when you are polite to the waitress.
The fight is not yours; don’t take up a war that isn’t yours. Be a warrior in the war of prayer and surrender the rest to the Lord with arms wide open. (Matthew 11:28 “Come to me all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest”)
Don’t be hurt by the truth, instead listen carefully to it and let the Holy Spirit lead your mind and soul to higher understandings. Ignoring the truth or arguing with it is worse than being a blind man walking across a high way during rush hours. Because when reality knocks you, it hits hard. My uncle always tells us, “Sometimes we need a slap from God to wake us up”
