Often times, when trouble visits or life, we look for ways to solve our own problems without consulting our higher source. We forget that we have a caretaker, someone that looks after us throughout all of the seasons of life. It is during these times that life looks very dark and uncertain to us, and confusion and doubt seem to live on every corner. What we must understand and remember during these periods in our lives is that we have forgotten that there's a higher force bigger than any problem that is ready willing and available to us at any time. We just need to go to him.
Peace Not of This World
If we base our happiness and sense of stability on the world the joyous moments we experience will always be fleeting. One good upset or setback can turn our good spirits upside down. However, if we look to our source as a stabilizing force, regardless of what situations we are weathering in our lives, we will find the promised peace that is not of this world. If we carry our troubles to him, because he's the best friend we will ever have, he will give our spirits all the rest peace and joy we need, and we won't have to ride the roller coaster of our feelings. He'll give us a peace that sustains us and gives us the ability, calm, and patience to weather any storm with a clear head.
The Fruits of a Calm Spirit
The beauty of gaining unconditional peace is that it soothes our emotions and our spirit. It takes away our worry replacing it with a stillness and calm. We could have just experienced a major earthquake and need everything rebuilt from the driveway asphalt to the pool in the backyard, but that peaceful calm will settle over us providing comfort and giving us the intuition to understand that everything will be alright.
We must first learn to give up struggling with our problems. It feels like we are doing something to improve our lot but we really aren't. Struggle just builds stress. Once we learn to go to our source with all of our worries and concerns we are free to relax and continue to do what we need to do. We are left with an amazing peace that transcends all understanding. As difficult as it may be, we must learn to let go of struggle.
So, trust the peace that our source promises and enjoy the calm that comes from trusting a much more powerful force for our well-being and happiness. Let go of the struggle. It's no longer necessary to carry such heavy burdens on your shoulders.
