Today we wrap up our look at simplicity, I hope you have learned as much as I have this month. I know that it’s not always simple to follow God and have faith, we’re imperfect humans after all. It’s certainly something we all can strive for though. Today I want to finish our month by talking about finding peace. Psalm 122:7 says:
“May there be peace within your walls. May there be safety in your great buildings.”
I think we all want peace, deep down none of us want to be at war, fight with people or be miserable. Yet so often that’s where we end up. I know I want to have more peace in my life, maybe you do too. Peace isn’t something you can go to the store and buy or attained by doing or not doing certain things. Each of us finds peace in different ways, and peace means different things to each of us. But if you don’t have peace in your life there are a few things you can do to help you discover what peace means to you and why there isn’t peace in your life.
1-make a list of what makes you lack peace. It’s an important first step in getting to peace, because if you don’t acknowledge what causes you pain you can’t do anything about it.
2-get rid of the crap. Yes, get rid of the stuff in your life that drags you down, the stuff that depresses you, the stuff that makes you made, and even the people who unnecessarily complicate your life.
3-bring good stuff into your life. Eat right, have plants in your house, spend time with people you like and make you feel like the best version of you, work a job that satisfies you on multiple levels, and spend time connecting with your soul and spiritual side.
Do you have peace in your life? What brings you peace or where do you find peace?
