Peace has a variety of definitions. If I had to define it in the simplest way. It would be the absence of war or conflict in our lives.Peace is something we all need to deal with the many trials we will be faced with at some point of our lives.
I came to realize that there was a large amount of conflict present in my life and that inner peace was absent. I was sad and unhappy most of the time which took place on a daily basis.
Serenity for me was isolating myself from family and friends, making it worse I would watch my cell phone ring and just stare at the number knowing who it was and not answering. I only left the house for things that were necessary such as paying a bill or picking up a few items from the store. That was my answer to my existing problems.
Inner peace had to come from the inside of me; that I knew. I had to come up with a solution to resolve these conflicts that were roaming around inside of me. I wasn’t going to find them being still and stagnate which was lasting a longing that I needed or wanted.
As I began reading my bible, I realized that I had yet to turn my problems over to God. After reading several scriptures in the bible, I came across this verse in (2 Chronicles 20:15) that tells us that our battles aren't ours; they are God’s.
I gave everything to him, not leaving anything out but we often ask "GOD" to handle our problems but we don't give them to him completely. My problem was I would give them to him but the next couple of days I would pick them up again. He won't work on your behalf if you half step with him. I found that out after multiple times of trying.
God knows us better than we know ourselves. He created us. He always has our back which is one of his many promises. This is something that I know to be true not because someone told me but because his promises for his people are found through out his word.
He only wants good things for us; He does like seeing us sad. He longs for us to just call on him for help. He craves that we hold on to peace and that it stays and resides in us in the good time and bad.
Inner peace for me now overflows like a faucet of running water that will never stop because my mind will always be kept on him.
I found this to be true for me. Dont take my word; try him.
