Tips on how to stay calm and peaceful

Lately I have encountered a lot of things, disappointments and situations that have been trying to take my peace away. And some days where better than others . Then I got on my knees and prayed and said Lord I don’t want to feel this way.

I was feeling anxious and overwhelmed by what was happening then the Spirit of the lord reminded me not to be anxious for anything and that encouraged me. And I was reminded of the scripture in the Bible that says in Philippians 4:6-7Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

God was reminding me to be grateful and Not to be anxious and He would give me peace that surpasses all my understanding.

If you needing peace today in the midst of chaos and you’ve been feeling anxious and overwhelmed God is saying trust Him and He will give you peace beyond all understanding.

Sometimes it’s hard to understand why things happen in our lives the way they do but always remember God is in control of anything that you are facing and whatever is trying to still your joy. Just remember whatever your going through is the foundation of great and mighty things coming your way.

~Here are some of the tips that I have been practicing that have helped me stay calm and peaceful and I know they will help you to~

Pray when anxiety strikes

When you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed and have no peace pray and surrender you feelings and emotions to God and He will fill you up with the Spirit of peace and calm every storm in your life.

Read and meditate on God’s word

Instead of wallowing in fear and anxiety feed your spirit with God’s word of truth. Meditate on God’s word and in it you will get encouraged, empowered , hopeful and inspired to face whatever has be trying to steal your peace and with God on your side no weapon formed against you shall prosper.

Be patient

Patience is a virtue. When situations hit you have to remind yourself that this to shall pass. Seasons don’t last forever. Whatever your facing now is only going to make you stronger. You are living and walking in the preparation for your destiny. God has great plans for you so hold on to that. We live in a “me” and “now” generation, so the sooner you can learn to remain patient, the easier it will be to stay calm. Sometimes you just have to WAIT on the Lord.

Inner peace

It’s very important to train yourself to be peaceful on the inside and not try to acquire peace from the outside by trying to solve your anxieties with outward solutions. That would won’t last. You will still live in captivity of your emotions. Don’t get confused but remaining calm and peaceful is based on the inside, not by outward circumstances. Regardless of the the drama or crisis situation going on outside, you have control of the emotions going on inside. Just keep telling yourself that you are still in control of everything that is going on inside and that God has not brought this far to forsake you now.

Be Kind To Yourself

Love and be kind to yourself. Speak positively over yourself and encourage yourself. Many times I have said that it is important to like and love the person that is looking back at you in the mirror. Stop putting yourself down with negative self-talk. Respect yourself, your uniqueness , your talents, appearance, strengths and weaknesses. Being kind to yourself allows positive feelings to flow through your mind and that will produce peace in your life.

Forgive yourself and others.

Be quick to forgive yourself and others. When you forgive, it isn’t a sign of weakness and you aren’t condoning the action. Forgiveness allows you to put the situation behind you and turn off the constantly spinning wheels in your head. When you are wronged by another person or you wrong someone, you can’t ever take the words or actions back. Forgiveness is the only way of letting it all go. You will find out that Forgiveness brings about a peaceful calm within your soul. That is priceless.

Be thankful

Always be thankful. I know when you look in the mirror or around you, you will discover they are a lot of things to be thankful for. When you sense feelings of anxiety think of something thing good that has happened to you and be thankful. Thank God that you are a live, well and still breathing. You are going to hit rough patches many times in your journey through life but count it all joy and know that the battle is not yours but the lords. And remember in all things give thanks and know that God is always on your side and that will keep you peaceful and calm.

I pray these tips will help you like they have helped me. If you have any tips that have helped you stay peaceful that you would love to share please leave me a comment below.

Stay motivated and inspired

THE BATTLE BELONGS TO GOD

He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15

Many times i have had people say life is a battle. That statement is true life is hard, its full of trials and tribulations, so many hardships and challenges. Many times we fight, we lose ,we take chances, we fall and sometimes we win to. But one this that remains constant is life’s challenges and trials, they are always present.

Many times when you are faced with those challenges its easier to cave in and try to figure things out with our strength. we have chosen to fight a war thats not ours to fight thats why the many times we have done that we have ended up more stressed out and overwhelmed because we try to do things our own way and forgot to put God in the middle of out battles.

Many times you have chosen to fight your own battles because you where so afraid to fail and you forgot that you were nothing without God. Without God you are an easy target to the works of the enemy because you are not walking in His power but our own flesh which is weak.

God wants to remind you through his word in 2 Chronicles 20:15 and He says Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15. So when trouble shows up do not be discouraged but trust in God’s power and He will see you through.

God is saying do not be afraid for whatever battle, trial, lose, pain, sickness, enemies, betrayals or who trials to come against you. No matter how big the storm is, whether all your friends and loved ones have turned against and you feel so alone, the army thats rising up against you might be huge but be encouraged because the lord says the battle is not your but it’s God’s.

When you trust God with your battles you will realize that things in your life will get much easier and you will have more peace. You won’t worry and stress because you will know that king of kings is fighting on your behalf.

Whatever storm or battle you face God is with you. With Him you will always have the victory. Trust God, He is in the middle of your situation and will not let anything harm you.

 

Just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego where thrown in the fire furnace God was there with them and they never got burnt  He will do the same for you. The bible says If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king-Daniel 3:17 .

And then in Daniel 3:24-28- King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods. Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. Servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire. Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants!

 

This story in the bible is to remind you that the battle is not yours but the Lord’s. So don’t be afraid or discouraged of what may come against you and Just know God is in Control of your life and His always going to fight your battles for you.

God you are bedrock under my feet, the castle in which I live, my rescuing knight My God—the high crag where I run for dear life hiding behind the boulders safe in the granite hideout. I sing to God, the Praise-Lofty, and find myself safe and saved. The hangman’s noose was tight at my throat; devil waters rushed over me. Hell’s ropes cinched me tight; death traps barred every exit. A hostile world! I call to God, I cry to God to help me. From his palace he hears my call; my cry brings me right into his presence—a private audience!                                                                                                                         Amen.

THE POWER OF PERSISTENCE

When you think of Hannah, think of persistence and faith. At the time of history when infertility and a woman both scorn and ridicule, Hannah faced an added headache. She became an object of cruel mocking by her husband’s other wife.

Because the Lord had closed Hannah’s womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her.  This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the Lord, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat.  Her husband Elkanah would say to her, “Hannah, why are you weeping? Why don’t you eat? Why are you downhearted? Don’t I mean more to you than ten sons?”

Once when they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh, Hannah stood up. Now Eli the priest was sitting on his chair by the doorpost of the Lord’s house. In her deep anguish Hannah prayed to the Lord, weeping bitterly.  And she made a vow, saying, “Lord Almighty, if you will only look on your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.”

 As she kept on praying to the Lord, Eli observed her mouth.  Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk  and said to her, “How long are you going to stay drunk? Put away your wine.”

 “Not so, my lord,” Hannah replied, “I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the Lord. 16 Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.”  Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.”She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.

Early the next morning they arose and worshiped before the Lord and then went back to their home at Ramah. Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah, and the Lordremembered her.  So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, “Because I asked the Lord for him.”1 Samuel 1:6-20

Had you been Hannah, how would you have responded?

Hannah refused to lash out at her rival, but instead took her sorrow and loss to God. She prayed honestly to the Lord begging him for her son. She refused to believe that her difficult situation had to remain permanent.

How many times have we lashed out at our rivals because of what they have said about you or your situation and things in your life because worse. Many times when you lash out at situations when you don’t have to you are really giving power to that situation to control your life. Let us be like Hannah that when your rival comes against you instead of lashing out take your sorrow, pain and situation to God in prayer and God will restore all that was lost and reward you in the presence of your rivals.

Hannah Prayed sincerely, specifically, and sacrificially. She did not back away from her request, even when rebuked by an uncomprehending priest and God rewarded heart faith with a son, Samuel. When the time came for her to keep her word and give Samuel to the service of the Lord, she did so with a thankful heart.

Pray specifically about your need, want and the situation that your facing. Be persistent and have faith in God no matter what  and He will reward you and answer your prayers and fulfill the desires of your heart all for his glory.

Prayer changed the course of Hannah’s life and impacted an entire nation. God used her son Samuel in a key role as a prophet during a lifetime of king David, and his  influence outlived him as he gave great impetus to the prophetic movement. God also blessed Hannah with many children, proving once again his delight in the faith and persistence of his people.

Stay prayerful and God will change your life forever and cause the impossible to happen in your life. The key is to always be persistent, never give-up even when faced with the impossible and have faith in God, you will be glad you did. God wants to transform you from the inside out allow Him in your life and miracles and breakthroughs will start happening to you.

Stay Inspired, motivated and empowered to never give up and trust God always.

Don’t let your past destroy your future 

Do you know that many times we have allowed our past to determine what we can achieve or dream about. We have determined our success from where we came from. 

Just because you came from a family that was poor , may be they never went to school, they lack the resources to pursue their own dreams, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to end up that way. 

You have to shift your mentality or your way of thinking about your destiny. If your family was not educated then you go to school get a degree and change that, if they did not pursue their dreams and gave up you pursue your dreams and never quit until they come to pass. 

You can change your history by the way you think and you can change your past by the way you think. Just because you grew up in a certain way doesn’t determine how you’re going to end up, you can change that right now by changing the way you think about yourself about your destiny about your worth. 

I want you to know this that you deserve every good thing on this planet. So make up your mind today and don’t allow any memories, loss, negativity from your past sabotage your dreams and destiny.

Make sure you don’t stand in the way of your dreams by the way you think about your dreams.  If you think that big dreams are just for the select few and not for you then you will not achieve anything but if you think and decide in your mind that you’re not going to be a product of your past. Then good things are going to start happening to you . The manifestation of God’s blessings will follow you everywhere you go because you allowed your self to believe in the impossible and refused to let the past detect your future.

You are going to achieve greater things that your family even ever dreamt, you are going to go places you have never been before. You are really changing your legacy, you’re you’re representing your family that didn’t have the opportunity to do what you have done, now you know you can do it. 

You have the power within you to achieve every dream that God has placed inside of you, the only thing you’re going to do is do not judge yourself based where you come from but change your mentality and your perception and see yourself as a winner and see yourself as an overcomer and remember that God did not bring you the spa to for sake you that he has plans for you plans to give you a hope and a future.

 God did not say to give you a past but He said He will give you a hope and a future so that you could be great in all areas of your life. Now you’ve got to believe that got what it takes to be a success that and your dreams will come to pass. Don’t allow your past hinder you from your dreams anymore.

This is a new day and a season greater and the best things are a head of you. The past is gone your best future is right in front of you in Jesus name.

Stay motivated and inspired to dream big and never give up.

Fight for your dreams 

~ Never ever give up, no matter what

When talking about fighting for your dreams and believing in yourself and never giving up even when you fail over and over and over again all you Gotta do is you have to get back up again and fight for your dreams, your destiny and everything that you believe in because it will come to pass with great perseverance, consistency and focus.

 Now let’s look at the life of Abraham Lincoln for example it teaches us a lot about fighting for your dreams . Abraham Lincoln fought for his dreams that even when he failed he never gave up until he achieved his dreams.

In 1831, Abraham Lincoln failed in business.

In 1832, Abraham Lincoln was defeated for state legislator.

In 1833, Abraham Lincoln tried a new business, and failed.

In 1835, Abraham Lincoln’s fiancée died.

In 1836, Abraham Lincoln had a nervous breakdown.

In 1843, Abraham Lincoln ran for congress and was defeated.

In 1848, Lincoln ran again, and was defeated. Again.

In 1855, Lincoln ran for the Senate, and lost.

In 1856, Lincoln ran for Vice President, and lost.

In 1859, Lincoln ran again for the Senate. He was defeated.

Then, in 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States. 

He never gave up no matter what he failed at or whatever odds were against him he persevered and fought till the end and won you can do it to.What matters most is not how many times you fail, but that you never stop trying just like Abraham Lincoln did. Always fight for your dreams till they become a reality. 

~Stay focused and persistent 

Even when everything seems to be against you and you can’t see your way through keep trying and fight for your dreams don’t give up or lose your focus because the enemy will always use your weaknesses against you to hinder you , distract you from fighting for your dreams.

The only reason why we fail it’s because of broken focus . Lack of focus will kill your dreams before they are even born. When you lose sight of your dreams you will never achieve them. Stay focused and patient in your season. Be consistent in your dreams and fight for what you believe and you will achieve it.

~Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams.

Sometimes we tend to complain about our age and think that maybe we are too old or too young to pursue our dreams but age is just a number but your dreams are in you and alive, they want to come out but you have let your age hinder you from pursuing them. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 6 years old or your 20, 30, 40, 60 , 70 years old or older, as long as you have a dream inside of you and believe in it 100% you will achieve it. Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams. As long as you have breath in you , you can achieve your dreams.

~Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Most of the time we have talked ourselves out of pursuing our dreams because we didn’t not have the resources to back up what we believed in and that has stood in the way our destiny. Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams. When you keep fighting  for your dreams the right doors will open up for you. The more you walk into your destiny God will open doors of financial breakthroughs and opportunities will present themselves to you if you do not give up so quickly .

~Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Even when everybody doesn’t see what you see don’t let them discourage or distract you from dreaming, don’t let their words distract you from believing in your dreams and fighting for them. 

The enemy will use your haters , the naysayers to try to sabotage your destiny but the more they do that keep on believing in your dreams even harder. Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.Use their words as momentum to prove to them that you can do what God called you to do.

4 Ways on how to keep the devil out of your life

1. Put God first: In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success..proverbs 3:6. The enemy (devil) will always try to assert his position in your life to try to distract you from putting God first in every area of your life. So in order to keep the devil out of your life, put God first in everything that you do, He will give you the direction that you need to achieve what He has called you to do. Whenever God is on the center of everything you do in life the devil has no room to get it in. In God you are safe and protected.
2. Pray without ceasing: Time spent in God’s presence it’s better than a thousand times elsewhere. Prayer protects you from the unknown tactics of the devil. Prayer gives you clarity and discernment over situations in your life. Many times when you fall into situations and get hurt sometimes it’s been because you where not covered in prayer and so you where an easy target to the enemy. So always stay prayerful in all seasons and situations so you can be protected by God. Remember the devil is roaring around looking for whom he might devour or destroy but you can keep him out of your life through prayer. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. John 17:15
3. Plead the blood of Jesus over your life: God showed us how much He loved us by sacrificing His only son Jesus who died on the cross and shed His precious blood so that He could be our covering… (John 3:16). When you plead the blood of Jesus over your life you are cleansed from all sin. Jesus blood shields ,covers you and protects you from the devil and all evil. Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony …”

4. Read the word of God daily: For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart….Hebrews 4:12. God’s word is very powerful and it changes situations in your life for the best when you read it daily. It will transform you from the inside out. It’s a powerful weapon against the devil. God’s word provides you the tools you need to destroy the enemy. So read God’s word daily and your life will be transformed and always protected. God will pour His wisdom and knowledge to guide you on your path and in all you do.

Stay motivated and inspired , know this if God is for you no one or no devil in hell will come against you . Victory is yours in Jesus name.
