Happiness….Prayer…Inner Peace….the Connection!

The path to true happiness?

True Happiness is not found in a job, a house, a car…..we gain true happiness by successfully achieving inner peace. First step in achieving inner peace? Ask WHO it is that you need to forgive and let it go, give it to God… Pray for them and pray for clarity of mind. Pray that Gods Will be done. You KNOW that revenge, anger, grudges…. are clouding your thoughts and separating you from goodness. And that is where your inner peace will be found and then you will find Your true happiness ! Xoxo
***remember…. It truly is harder and takes much more energy to hate than to love!

Inner Peace OR All the Material Possessions you could ever want?

Which would you want?

Inner peace in the face of all tragedy, all setbacks, all problems OR All the material possessions you could ever want? When I first heard this question posed, I was listening to the Wayne Dyer CD “It’s Never Crowded Along The Extra Mile” I took a momentary double take at my player and then said with total conviction…..”Inner Peace”!

I would rather live with Inner Peace than have immense wealth, especially in times of conflict.  I would rather live a humble, modest life or even a life of poverty with inner peace than to live a life of luxury without it.  Why?

God never said our life would be without troubles, as a matter of fact he said the opposite!  John 16:33 ” These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. ” You see He says we will have tribulation but to be of good cheer. Most people have no concept of how to “be of good cheer” in the face of tribulation.

This is the reason I would give anything and everything up for inner peace. Then I could say with confidence “Bring it on!”

With GOD all things are possible! I know in Him I will learn what it means to have inner peace in the face of all problems!

In HIM I have found hope. The hope that I value inner peace over whatever the material world has to offer.

Peace to YOU~ Christine
