Where can I find peace?

Peace is it a destination or some far aloof ideal?

Well…

Peace for me has only come in small amounts. For as it is said that happiness is an inside work, so is peace.

Peace is an inside work!

My inner life of my soul is such a busy metropolis at times that its no wonder peace is limited!

People who become accustomed to the constant noise can find it strange to be in peace and quiet. We have seen it in movies when the city person goes to a country for restful time and they may have to play sounds of the busy city life to even fall asleep.

Then comes a time that they readjusted to the not being in the clammer of hustle of the noise that peace has begun to come into their life.

I am finding myself at a place where I long for the peace within myself! My inner anxiousness is much like a busy metropolis.

My Pastor Juanita Gibbs (Note: Each part of her name is linked to her book, facebook, website) spoke on last sunday that God wants to lead me beside the still waters. That referance can be found in Psalm 23.

He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul;

Psalms 23:2‭b-‬3a NASB

I have to begin to allow God to hold my hand and lead me beside still waters. By that is embracing and submitting to the teaching my Pastor has been imparting to all of us. This way He can begin to restore my soul.

As my soul (inner life) becomes more accustomed to peace it will not want to go back to anxiety.

I began to write out some highlights of her teaching in a new notebook lastnight to be my quick referance guide to get back to peace when anxiety needs to be caught and dealt with.

She has imparted so much when I recapped the teachings it was a vibrant refresher to my spirit.

The more I lean on my spirit where the spirit of God dwells within me the anxiety in my soul can begin to be starved out. Thats what I would like for it to do anyway.

I want to move out of the anxiety and take up new residency in peace. Its up to me to keep moving along beside the still waters!

Greetings Readers! I began blogging in Aug 2017 about my personal experiences, thing I have going on in my life that I am working toward overcoming. I write my blogs to help encourage others that may be going through some of the things like I have dealt with in life to show them there is help and hope no matter what we are going through in life. My writings have helped me to begin to write my very first book and it is coming along greatly and I sure hope to have it published perhaps next year would be great. So, please stay tuned for that! I want my life to help inspire others to keep going and to not quit when life gets hard. We all may face different things but we can learn from each other if we see how we overcome in an area that another may be struggling in. I write to encourage and uplift to bring a glimmer of hope when there isn't much offered out there in the world today. I have been an avid reader for years and this year has been a year of me putting my writing out there for the world to begin to see as I have of others. ~Love Life ~ Live Life~ ;)
