Embracing Peace In A World of Chaos

How to discover abundance in the midst of the mess

 

Everywhere around us the world is raging. Tragedy – chaos – uncertainty- fill the air. We can’t help but feel the weight of the world every time walk out our front door.

 

We see it in the news, we read about it on social media. We feel helpless that there is anything we can do to fix what is so terribly broken in the world around us.

 

We are, however, powerful to focus our energy on changing what is looking back at us in the mirror. We are powerful to live our lives with hope, abundance, and peace.

 

What would the world feel like to have a strong, solid foundation that would withstand the storms and struggles life inevitably brings?

 

How would life feel different if we had deep roots firmly planted in rich soil that gives our lives clarity, vision, and purpose?

 

The chaos of life doesn’t change – WE change!

 

I wrote Peace For A Lifetime as a result of my journey through brokenness. The lessons I learned, the healing and peace I have found apply no matter what your journey or your circumstances.

 

Trading Emptiness for Abundance

 

I’ve found three clear reasons Emotional Abundance will help you navigate the storms and find peace in the midst of the messes life can bring.

 

  1. Maximized HOPE! – Without a doubt your hope lies first and foremost in the person of Jesus Christ. He is your foundation spiritually, emotionally, and physically. As you learn to appropriate His hope into the emotional area of your life, you will experience the fullness, the abundance of hope He promises. Emotional Abundance allows you to walk through all the seasons of our lives and deal with them effectively so that you can face them without fear and find peace in the most difficult days.

 

Jeremiah 29:11(NIV) states, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

 

  1. Complete WHOLENESS! – God wants you to be not only healed, but whole. Emotional Abundance allows you to find healing for your wounds and experience wholeness within your own heart and mind. As you learn to be a good caretaker for your emotions, to create an environment of compassion and truth, you will begin to discover your emotional identity. God doesn’t want his children limping through life, barely surviving. He wants you to thrive. He wants you to discover your unique calling, your passion and purpose so that you can make a difference for His kingdom. As individuals become whole, the entire body of Christ becomes whole.

2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP) tells us that, “God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well- balanced mind and discipline and self-control.”

 

  1. Enduring HARMONY! – You were not meant to live in chaos. Your relationships were never supposed to be a rollercoaster of pain and disappointment. Emotional Abundance fosters peace and strength in your relationships so that you can enjoy them without being dependent on them for your happiness or wellbeing. When you look inside to find peace within yourselves, you don’t need as much from others, nor do you blame them for your unhappiness. Emotional Abundance allows you to deal with disagreements in a way that leaves you and others on the same team and preserves the openness, safety and respect needed for relationships to flourish.

Romans 15:5-6Amplified Bible (AMP) shares, “Now may the God Who gives the power of patient endurance (steadfastness) and Who supplies encouragement, grant you to live in such mutual harmony and such full sympathy with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may [unanimously] with united hearts and one voice, praise and glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).

 

Embracing Peace

 

Our wounds steal from us a life of hope. They steal our identity, our abundance, our relationships. Our wounds ultimately steal our peace.

 

Life doesn’t have to be this way. This is not the life God has for you.

 

Peace isn’t just an illusion. Peace isn’t always for someone else. Peace is for you. Every time you have struggled and fallen has brought you to this place. You are ready. Now is the time.

 

You can learn to:

  • heal the wounds that have kept you stuck
  • feel, understand, and manage your emotions effectively
  • create an environment in which you can thrive
  • develop deep, satisfying relationships in your life

 

Yes, you can take back your power and discover a life of hope, wholeness, and harmony! If you’re ready, Peace For A Lifetime, can help show you the way.

  1. Peace is my word for this year and boy do I need it! As I seek peace, I am finding it and my spirit is calming down. 🙂

  2. Bless you Lisa, as your story is blessing others. Neighbors at Jennifer’s today (#24).

  3. I am so blessed by the words that you have penned in this book of your heart and by the words you share here leading us to wholeness. You know I have always thought if I had it all together then I would be able to handle and respond to everything correctly. More hope and wholeness though, when I think of it like that, would also be more grace and maybe more of His love for others to share.

    Thanks for linking up at #GraceMoments link up!
    Blessings

      Exactly, Dawn!! When we don’t have hope or wholeness inside, there is little chance to have His grace or love for others! Blessings to you today!
