Having a Peace of Mind….

What does this mean?  Does it mean not to have a worry in the world, or to let your mind wander to a place with no despair?  I really cant put a definition to it but I will say there is NOTHING like having a peace of mind.  When I look up the googled definition here is what I found:

If something gives you peace of mind , it stops you from worrying about a particular thing or event.

There are times in life where I have had a piece of mind, and in most cases it was when I felt like I was in control of something.  Now looking back, a sense of control was a hidden sense of fear from things falling apart.  I don’t think we ever REALLY have control over anything in life. Sometimes things are up to chance or just natural causes. The only person that can really control THIS THING CALLED LIFE IS GOD. A spiritual healer and guide to help us navigate our purpose here on earth by listening.  Sometimes the loudest response is what has not been said. What made me really write a post about Having A Peace of mind is that we spend so much time worrying about things that we have absolutely no control over that we miss some  of the most amazing milestones in our life. Each year we get older and the years get numbered.  What have we accomplished so far?  Or did we spend the them full of worry and concern that we let all this valuable time pass us by. My mother said something to my sister and I the other day that hit home, and one day soon I will under stand.  She said ” I am not sixty five year old, there will be a day where there will be more days in your past than you have in your future.” This hit home because at her age she see’s a shortened road than I do in my thirties or my niece in her teens. When your young you feel like you have the world ahead of you, and plenty of time to accomplish life’s wonders. But in reality we have to use each day and year like its the best time. There are RIGHT times in life and those are the ones GOD allows to happen. One phrase I like is “its not what happens to you, but how you respond to what has happened.” 

Thank you for Reading!

  1. “There are RIGHT times in life and those are the ones GOD allows to happen”. I know soooo many folks searching for peace right now, and you are so right, it’s when things feel out of control that we feel like we lost our piece. Really on time posting

  2. Soo true..fear disguises itself so well, that we feel peace of mind because things are in ‘our control’ and yet God controls everything. Peace of mind for me is acceptance of where I’m at, while being faithful in the plans of God for me

  3. Hi there, this was a nice little insightful piece you’ve written here. What really made me think was what your mother said about having more time in your past than in your future. That’s crazy, yet truthful and thought-provoking. I’ve always tried to make good use of my time and make the most of what’s happening in the here and now, even though still laze about from time to time. I also know I have spent a good chunk of my life worrying about stuff, and it is only in recent years I’m learning to let go and just take the day as it comes regardless of whether the result is positive or otherwise.

    1. Yes!! We spend so much time worrying but fail to realize the outcome will be the same and the stress is t good for our health. It’s sooo hard but definitely knowing things are in Gods hands makes it a little easier to let go! 😊
