Gaining Mental Peace

The life of strain is difficult; the life of inner peace is the easiest type of existence for it is harmonious and without tension.  The chief factor in gaining mental peace is to revise your thinking and take the relaxed attitude of accepting God’s gift of peace.

…be glad that it happened!

Don’t feel sad because it’s over,

just be glad that it happened!

Don’t be tempted…

The real art of conversation is not only to say

the right thing in the right place

but to leave unsaid the wrong thing

at the tempting moment!

When the time is right – nothing can prevent it from happening!

When the time is wrong – nothing can make it happen!

Do not worry…

…do not worry about your life…can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?…Strive first for the kingdom of God…and all these thing will be given to you…

Matt. 6:25-33

Once I decided to live by the words ‘Come to me all who are burdened and I will give you rest’ then the above verse came naturally.  In the smallest things and the bigger things I trust that God will bring good out of the situation.  I do, of course, ask  ‘him’ to do that.  It truly does give an inner ‘ peace that passeth all understanding’.
