6/30/15 – Obtaining Peace and Happiness
What are you willing to do, to obtain Peace and Happiness? Such a great question. Honestly, I’m through with being sick and tired and falling out of having peace and happiness when I repent. Yes, I believe in repenting, and I repentant everyday. However, I have come to terms that enough is enough when it comes to certain sins. This includes any sins I commit that I have complete control of. I’ve been feeling like this for the past 6 years, and it’s time for me to stop committing foolish sins that effects me spiritually, mentally, and physically. It’s crazy how if we want to get in shape or lose weight, we will create and go thru a strict workout regimen or eat healthy. If we want to pass a test, we study hard. The common theme here is having a plan.
One thing I learned as I get older is that if you can prepare for anything, PREPARE!!! In order to overcome those challenges, I prayed and worked hard. (“In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” James 2:17)
Now let’s bring it all in. If I can do all of this to achieve great things in this world, how come I can’t push myself to obtain peace and happiness in this world? It’s so easy to do wrong and that in itself is scary! At the age of 25, I realized the key to obtaining peace and happiness is by seeking/obeying God and putting an end to committing foolish sins that I have control of.
Love is Love,
