Choose Peace

There may be times that we couldn't hear anything aside from the noise, but let's choose to find peace.


Peace Over the Noise

Choosing peace may not be the first thing we'll do if we are already in a difficult situation, because most of the time we choose to dwell on those difficulties instead of letting our minds relax.

I know there will be times we can hear a lot of noise in our minds with an overwhelming situation. This may be difficult for some and easy for others to handle. People would have their own way to handle hardships or challenges in life but no guarantee that these things will get them out of the situation they're in. And Hey! One thing is for sure, none of these works if you will not choose "peace" as your first step to overcome this giant.

There are times when we encounter hardships in life we are like these:

  • We tend to rely on our own ways or understanding of how to get out of the difficult situation
  • We become so greedy when we do the action and we rush things because we are too excited to resolve it
  • What we know and understand is not the best thing to do and we will never know where it will lead us
  • We say that the happiness we feel right now will be everlasting happiness, but little did we know, this can be hurtful to us eventually

I just hope that even if the noise is too loud, may we still hear the whisper of peace in our hearts so it can also be present in our minds.


Don’t Listen to the Voice of Your Emotion

Have we ever thought that the reason why we are experiencing anxiety, depression, and hopelessness is that we are only focusing our eyes on the world that has to offer?

Don't get me wrong, whether we like it or not these things are all present here on earth all we need to do is to have armor which is the word of God.

We forget that we can rely on our God and ask him to give us peace in our hearts and in our minds and take us away from the things that would only deceive us about the joy that we can only have temporarily. Always remember that our emotions cannot be the basis of how you will live your life. Our emotion is deceitful.

Sometimes emotions can lead you to whatever that the world is giving you. For example, you are sad and feeling lonely, so what you did was, you bought stuff online impulsively, why? Because you base it on your emotions without even having a careful thought that these things can only give temporary happiness and might end up regrets too.

I'm glad to say that the peace we can ask for from God is omnipotent. He can always give it to us as long as we ask. He listens to us. He will never fail us.
If our mindset is about what God can give us, we will have the habit of asking Him instead of relying on other things. The peace that we will get from God will be an everlasting peace that will lead us to happiness and a grateful heart.


Ask God for Peace

Having peace from God will be our gateway to get out of the difficult situation and not the material things we see online just to cover up the anxiety, depression, or hopelessness. That temporary happiness will only deceive you because the truth is, those things that you covered up are still there in your minds and hearts, they were never removed because they were just covered up. So ask God to give you "Peace" and those things will be removed and the pain will be replaced with joy.

If what we have in our minds is anxiety too strong to overcome, pray and ask God to give us peace. This is the first step to getting out of this situation. God will give it to you because He cares for you because He loves you so much because He never wants to see His children suffer from the things that we can only see in the world we are living in.

I know there will be days that you will feel like giving up, I hope this article will make you encouraged and hopeful.
