Peace like happiness comes from within. The spirit of God that dwells within us makes it all possible.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.” John 14:27
He gives us the peace within us. It is up to us to enjoy it and not block it. If we find the peace within, we will then be able to share the peace with others. Peace, love and happiness all comes from that same inner God dwelling that each one of us have. It is our birth right; it is our soul that holds the key to our peace.
Why do we struggle with enjoying peace? Is it that we some how feel that we don’t deserve it? Does being happy and content, living a peaceful life not fit the drama lifestyle that seems to be the norm? If you look at the news, the television shows and movies you see drama, scandal and turmoil. Is this what happened? If we aren’t swirling in some form of drama, do we not feel as if we are living? These questions are food for thought.
I know personally that some of us thrive on drama, gossip and scandal. Contentment, peace and harmony may seem boring. Living in stillness, quiet and one with God may not appear as exciting as Hollywood’s soap opera dramas.
Our lives are just that, our lives. We have the choice to choose how we live. It isn’t about money and stuff. It’s about your perception of things around you. A rich man can go to bed in his mansion with a $1000 blanket covering him with a heart full of gratitude and contentment just as a poor man can go to bed in his small apartment with a $20 blanket covering him with his heart full of gratitude and contentment. The level of happiness and peace is one of the same for each of those men. Read that again and think about it.
Where is your heart? What is it full of? Are you shifting your focus? Do you have the peace of God alive in you? Or is it blocked by your ego driven vision?
“And he awoke, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.” Mark 4:39
The wind is that of our thoughts and the sea that of the world around us, Peace, be still, that is what we wake up within us. Awaken the spirit of God within our soul. And then there is a great calm. It is available to all who chose to receive. Are you ready to awaken what God has given you?
