The significance of peace stems from a decision to release things. We may not always like our experiences in life, but we must be able to move past them to obtain peace of mind and heart. Let’s take a moment to discuss, “Finding Peace.”
I am not talking about a false sense of peace that comes and goes, but rather experiencing a true sense of peace and release. We may not allow ourselves to walk in this, perhaps out of fear when letting something or someone go. But the sooner we do so the healthier it is for us.
Letting go is a test for everyone. We each handle things differently. Some are good at quickly letting things go because they have chosen not to allow themselves to become too attached to things. Perhaps they have put up a boundary between them and others as a form of protection. True release is not because you are living an unhealthy life of fake pretense with others. Rather it comes because you have chosen to let go of what is necessary for peace.
To obtain true peace, you choose not to allow yourself to relive the painful areas. You chose to forgive those who have hurt you and you deal with unresolved issues. It is important to go to God in prayer and allow Him to heal you and help you in these moments. These painful areas can consume us and take away our sense of peace of heart and mind.
Let’s be completely honest, we may believe that not everyone deserves our forgiveness. I want you to understand, this is not about whether someone earns our forgiveness or not. Rather, this is about your peace of heart and mind. These painful areas can eat at us and cause us to lose sleep and not be well if we allow it.
One of the hardest things may be to move past the painful things we face in life. But this is the most important. It not about making light of what has occurred, but rather having an ability to not allow this pain to cause any of us to be at a standstill in life or change us to something we are not. God promises us a peace that passes natural understanding. It is a gift; we can have from Him by faith. Oftentimes, we may think ‘prayer will just take it all away.’ I want to encourage you that surrendering it to God and asking for His help will be the thing that will bring peace that cannot be explained.
There are many promises from the Bible that I have learned to stand on and experienced them for myself. So please know I am sharing from a personal side of experience. There are weights and burdens we can carry that become too heavy to bear. Sometimes others will come alongside us to help us to carry them. But most importantly, when we take all our cares, burdens, pain, unforgiveness, etc. to God in prayer, we must decide to leave it there in faith in God’s hands for His will to be done and to attain His help to get us through it. Healing is a process. It is one day at a time, but we do not have to battle alone.
I really felt to write this topic because we each may be facing a variety of difficulties right now or perhaps; we have for a long time. Without peace, there is this constant battle on the inside of us searching for it. You don’t have to battle alone, and you can have peace that passes all understanding.
