Make Peace

Worry is always in conflict with internal peace. Therefore, if we can make a point to create peace in our external world, our minds will find this as well. 

Look for areas in your life that need resolution, order or unity. Go to God in prayer and ask Him to show you how you can be an agent of peace. Perhaps He will give you the power to forgive someone who has hurt you, breaking you free from a spirit of bitterness. Or maybe He will show you how to find common ground and seek to understand others with differing views without forcing your agenda or need to be right. Being able to have peace with everyone around us, regardless if we agree on everything or not, is the way we are asked to live as followers of Jesus. What a blessing to find ways to make peace in a dark and divided world. 

Make peace instead of worry on this “Not Gonna Worry” Wednesday.

Blessed are the peacemakers, 
    for they will be called children of God. 
Matthew 5:9
