PEACE STARTS HERE!
I don’t know about you, but if my spiritual life is a mess, the rest of my life is usually on a downward spiral as well.
However, I know that when I turn my eyes upon Jesus, I can do all things because He strengthens me. I am not talking about religion here but what I am talking about is having a deep and meaningful relationship with my Father in Heaven, the Creator of the heavens and earth.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
We do regular checkups for our health, run diagnostics on our cars and computers and even take tests for our IQ but how many of us spend time checking on our spiritual health?
On a scale from 1-10 (with 1 being a dark sink hold and 10 being a bright and sunny day on a mountain top over looking the bluest ocean) where would you rate the health of your soul?
We can’t make any changes or improvements until we know where we are now.
If you are at or near a 10, congratulations! You are definitely in the minority. There is so much pain and suffering in this world and it is because so many people’s spiritual life is in the toilet.
When we know God and trust in His promises (you will only know what they are by reading His word, aka the Bible 🙂 that is when we can finally experience a peace that passes all understanding. All of a sudden we are not doing this life all alone; we have someone who loves us beyond our comprehension and in fact sent His beloved Son to die for us so that we could live.
“The Bible is a realistic depiction of the condition of the human race. While there are moments of heroism and moral clarity, the Bible isn’t about larger than life people making flawless decisions and reaping the reward for their perfection. Humanity has an ugly history, and the bible doesn’t ignore it, but rather takes hold of it, owns it and gives us a savior who makes things right.” ~ from the article The Rest of The Story by Jessica Thompson
