Everyone is dealing with issues, some more profound than others. Some people are more open and verbal in expressing their troubles, fears, and their life in general. While others hold things deep inside and keep things bottled up in fear of upsetting someone or being seen for who they really are. Yet, both types of individuals, can be seen from afar and you would never know what they might be dealing with, if anything at all.
Then there’s people like me, that are a combination of both, they may tell their dearest friend, their mother, or someone else close enough to them their dark deepest secrets and keep it bottled up from the rest of the world. No matter how you deal with your issues, it all comes down to the same thing. You have to deal with them! I was praying to God this morning and asked him to help me sort something out in my life. I’ve given my burdens to Him in the past and He has kept me from getting over stressed and anxious. This continues to be a work in progress when it comes to dealing with stress and everything that can gets you down in life, but knowing God is there working on my behalf helps me get through. This morning after my quiet time, was no different. I came into my office and started scrolling on Facebook and came across this message that I believe was an answer from God.
Find Your Peace
by Dan Pedersen
Worrying about what other people think about you, will prevent you from being your best.
It will prevent you from being real.
It will prevent you from doing the right thing.
It will prevent you from being what others need you to be (which isn’t always the same as what they want you to be).
It will prevent you from being at peace.
Do what brings you peace. Not only will you be more satisfied, but you’ll be what the world truly needs you to be. A peaceful mind creates peace in the world.
Yes, I believe this was meant for me to see this morning, and I hope it was meant for you to see today as well! Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will help you find your Peace! Never give up hope!
