Hello Beautiful!!!How To Have Peace In The Midst of Turbulent Times by Lady Charmaine Day
We are living in turbulent times. Every day the news reports that our time is plagued by racism, police brutality and life-ending diseases and weather. When we see frightening news about death and destruction, it easy to lose your peace of mind and to be overwhelmed by fear, worry and anxiety.How are we to have peace in the middle of turbulent times? Peace comes from knowledge. If you knew that you were protected and blessed wherever you went, you wouldn't feel fear, or worry, or doubt, instead you will feel confidence and most importantly peace. This knowledge comes from knowing and believing the fundamental truths of your faith. God promised you in his word in Deuteronomy 28:1-13 that if you would fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands that the Lord your God gave you in the the ten commandments, that he will set you high above all the nations on earth and that blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God. This includes being blessed in the city and blessed in the country. That your children will be blessed and your work would be blessed. That you will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. God promised you that when enemies rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. So that you would never have any doubts, or fears, God promised you that he would bless everything you put your hand to and that he would establish you as his holy people. Because God has made you a holy people, all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you. God promised you abundant prosperity in every area of your life, with your children, your finances and your work, everything that he has blessed you with. He even told you that he will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to bless all the work of your hands. God promised that you will be so blessed that you will lend to many nations but will borrow from none and that God will make you the head, not the tail. So the knowledge of whose you are and what God you serve should comfort you in times likes these and give you the faith you need to live at peace. Regardless of your circumstances or what you are going through, in every situation you can find the good that God is giving you. How? How do you find God and his goodness in the midst of trials and tribulations? First start by changing your thinking and vision so that you can see God's presence in your life. You can do this by looking at your situation. Things could always be a million times worse than your current state of affairs. God's mercy, grace and favor kept you from experiencing something far more horrible than what you are going through. Second, when in the midst of your crisis, do you notice people are blessing you with kindness and compassion, that's God in action. God works through people to bless you and uplift you. Third, draw closer to him by consistently praying to him and praising him for all the blessings that he has given you. Lastly, adopt an attitude of constant gratitude for the things he has done in your life. I know personally from experience in my darkest days because of my changed thinking and vision, I have been able to look passed my circumstances and see God's hand on my life protecting me, taking me through the storm I had been facing and sending people at just the right time to help me. That's why I can say God is good all the time. You can do this too by choosing to see God at work in your life because he is right there caring for you and seeing you through. We serve an awesome God who is in control of this world and who cares for you. By implementing the few steps I suggested you will notice God's presence in your life and will feel peace, a peace that surpasses all understanding. You will be glad that you took time to follow the steps that I suggested. Until next time, take care of yourself and stay special!!!
