Peace in 2011?

Pin It Now! Life is crazy. It is full of ups and downs. It changes in the blink  of an eye. Perfect sanity can switch to mere insanity in a matter of moments.
The question becomes... do we try to change the world, or do we change ourselves to accommodate the world around us? It's a tricky situation, because we have to admit that the world is not going to become a peaceful place over night. It may never be a peaceful place. But in order to deal with the craziness and trouble, we have to learn how to have a calm heart.

What does it really mean to have a calm heart? It means having faith that everything is going to turn out okay in the end. It means letting go-trusting that God has you in the palm of his hand. It is learning to live life appreciating the little things- acknowledging the people around you, giving thanks for everything you are blessed with. It is learning to step away from the insanity, and recognizing that YOU are in control.

Take 5 minutes to unwind and think about how often you are running around in life, playing catch-up, "rushing" from one thing to the next. What are we trying to catch up to? The truth is, we will never really catch up... because we were never really behind in the first place.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
—John 16:33
