Trust in God: Acceptance, Source of Peace

December 26, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

The world is full of things that can cause us physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual turmoil.  For as long as we are in this world, it’s difficult to not be affected by such things.  We can go crazy by letting such affect us.  The only way to be able to deal with the toxicity of this world is to be at peace.

It’s said that peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.  This is obviously easier said than done – but for the sake of one’s sanity, it has to be done, somehow.

Accept that reality will always change, for the only thing constant in life is change.  There will always be some new reality that we will just have to adapt to survive.  Some changes won’t even make any sense at all.  It’s irrelevant if we understand the change or not; we’ll still have to deal with it as best as we can.

Accept that there are many things in life that are out of our control.  The only thing we can do is to take things in stride.  Try to be open to possibilities brought by the change that cannot be changed.  For all we know, there might even be opportunities hidden in the new reality that we can exploit to our advantage, if we only try to look at things in a new light.

Accept that sometimes we won’t always be successful even in changing the things that are under our control.  It can be extremely exasperating since supposedly these are the things that we should be able to manage.  At the end of the day, that’s still okay because at least we tried rather than never tried at all.  The fact that we at least tried can also give us some sense of comfort because at least we tried to address the concern rather than be in fear of such.

Accept the reality that time will not wait for anyone and will burn away what little time we have in this world.  We either make the most of what we have, or we just watch life pass us by and ultimately be miserable for doing so.

In all things, we ought to be at peace in the midst of stress and turmoil, because we’re really not alone in our journey in life.  God might be very silent in a lot of the times that such are happening.  However do not mistake His silence for His absence.  God is with us all the way, working things out in the background per His grand scheme for what’s ultimately best for our life.  He’s especially there for us in the darkest hours of our life.

God’s love and providence for us is a reality of our faith that will never change.  It’s this fact that should give us comfort and peace, and thus enable us to truly live.
