GOT INNER PEACE?
It's so easy to slip into a false sense of security that we don't need God. A series of 'good' days and we easily convince ourselves that we are pretty emotionally balanced, easy-going, and that it takes a lot to make us snap.
Then along comes 'The Incident'.
A straw-that-broke-the-camels-back moment and we LOSE it. Whether external (embarrassing outward freak-out) or internal (actually more damaging internal moment bottled up so it can fester), it's painful just the same.
So, what do you do?
A) Berate yourself and fall in a slump on the floor
B) Use it as a timely reminder that you DO, in fact, need God.
One response shrinks your spiritual growth, the other enlarges it.
Fact is: we can't have lasting inner peace by ourselves. It only comes from God. And it's a gift he has ready for us each morning.
We can tap into this incredible power source, by the simple act of remembering we can't do it by ourselves and asking God for help sooner.
You were never meant to strive alone.
Grab hold of the true source of never-ending peace, BEFORE you lose it :-)
