Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. Psalms 4:8
As I was contemplating the state of affairs, the current headline news and trends, and some of my more personal troubles and struggles, the question of how does one maintain a peaceful and fearless mindset came to mind. As I type, the U.S. economy is in a state of decline the likes of which will result in an economic reset. The Federal reserve is printing money like Monopoly causing the value of the dollar to fall like a rock, and the people are none the wiser. We're losing our young military Service men and women at an alarming rate in a multitude of military conflicts, operations, skirmishes, and proxy wars that seem pointless and fruitless with no end in near sight. The overall health of the nation is spiraling out of control in a trajectory of tragedy. Evidence of this can be seen on the campuses of some our more prestigious universities and research institutions in that the Cancer centers and clinics stay full and the waiting rooms for treatment are getting bigger and bigger. Petty crime seems to be increasing as people become more desperate, or at least this is the perception that's being propagated in the headlines of many of our local news and media outlets. Relationships are becoming more strained as schedules get tighter and time becomes scarce. And on top of all of this, at a more personal level, my kids think I'm crazy because I demand that they turn off the television every now and then, read a book on occasion, and sit down with me at the dinner table when we eat, look me in the face and have decent conversations about how they're day has been. What in the Word?! How does one maintain and cultivate a peaceful and restful mindset in the face of a world of chaos, suffering, fear, and anxiety?!
Here are four tips that I've incorporated into my life that's helped me tremendously in developing a mindset of peace and tranquility helping me stay sane and out of the "crazy house."
