I have to be honest with you. There was a time in my life when I absolutely had no peace, but after some time, I realized, this was no way to live. I was constantly chasing something in hopes that something else would change, but I ended up seeking things instead of something that would help me. And that something is peace.
Jesus told his disciples before he left them in John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
So he was saying we won’t find anything in the world that will give us peace. Not like what He can give us. The world will have us chasing after things, following society and following trends. “oh everyone seems to be buying something that makes them happy and they seem at peace…”
That’s a negative. I have gone shopping until I had a closet for Jackets, a closet for bottoms and a closet for tops (small closets in my parents house – the very house we are renovating right now). I was trying to make up for something that was missing.
What I learned for me, is that seeking God 1st was the start for having more peace, along with learning truth vs following worldly views and media. Ultimately, I had to learn who I was in Christ.
But for absolute beginners, I put together a list of 10 simple tips you can start implementing right now whether you are a Christ follower or not, to gain a bit more peace in your life and reduce some chaos.
