Peace of mind is inner peace that allows us to enjoy each moment, free from worry, guilt, shame or self-condemnation.
Its unseen currents radiate tranquility of being at peace with the present and within.
Peace of mind affects the quality of life - an important characteristic of spiritual wellbeing.


Mercy of the Unknown

Peace of Mind
Problems and setbacks bring feelings of being at the mercy of the unknown.
Fear weighs us down with negative emotions about the future with anxiety and uncertainty.
Unsolved problems seem to pull one on a downward spiral to nowhere that they may be unable to see any positive way forward.
We seek peace of mind in the face of adversity.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light"
(Matthew 11:28-30)


Peace of Mind

Negative attitudes create boundaries that restrict the mind.
Negative thinking directs you toward failure.
"I would if I could, but I can't, so I won't".
De-clutter the mind by eliminating the irrelevant.
Positive thinking directs you toward success
Positive thoughts keep you constantly inspired.
A positive attitude creates positive expectations.
Positive action says, “yes I can do this.”
Optimism provides that first step to seeing, feeling, and thinking positively.


Faith

The soul longs for sacredness because it has an eternal connection to a Higher Power.
God becomes the Sovereign of our heart.
Jesus Christ becomes our Companion in our daily walk in life.
With faith in God, we see and hear things that the “eye has not seen, nor ear heard”
(1 Corinthians 2:9)
Faith connects us not only to God, but to those around us.
It provides a sense of purpose in this life and in the life to come, a moral compass and ethics.
God's Spirit within enables the faithful to:
*Live God's way.
*Have hope to endure the challenges of life.
*Become spiritually strengthened.
*Gain peace of mind that can only be found in God and Jesus Christ.
"Weave in faith and God will find the thread."
Even when situations seemed bleak, people have moved mountains with their faith because of God's Spirit within.
Anxiety, fear and hopelessness are eased through an inner sense of peace that only God and Jesus Christ can offer.
Jesus Christ Illuminates difficult pathways through the power of inspiration to conquer fear, doubt and negativity.
"I am the light of the world. He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life"
(John 8:12)


Hope

Peace of Mind
Spiritual renewal that transcends all limitations, can only come from God and Jesus Christ.
“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”
— Thomas Aquinas
“Hope is the light that shines brightest in the darkest of nights.”
By contrast, darkness is associated with evil, sin and dysfunction.
The cloud always has a silver lining.
In the midst of darkness, light symbolizes life, holiness and goodness - instinctively, we turn to God and Jesus Christ in the hour of need.
Spiritual inspiration can be enough to move mountains - you just have to have the desire to make it happen.
Jesus said, "If a person had even the smallest amount of genuine faith, he would be able to tell a mountain to pick itself up and cast itself into the sea, and it would obey him."
Mark 11:23


Resourcefulness

Peace of Mind
Adversity doesn't wait for luck or wishful thinking.
A resourceful mind finds the way to overcome challenges.
A resourceful-minded person will turn old boots into a new pair.
It is about being able to see potential in a situation where there doesn't seem to be any.
Resourcefulness “redefines the possible.”
The bigger picture takes shape when the individual says “yes I can do this.”
Jesus said to him, "'If you can, all things are possible for one who believes."


Conscience

Peace of Mind
We need peace of mind to ease our conscience!
In the spiritual sense, the conscience is the internal Voice of God that provides the compass to our values and principles.
It becomes the standard we use to judge whether our actions are ethical.
The conscience urges “to do good and avoid evil" for the benefit of a good and stable society.
No-one can stand before God and lie or do evil with a clear conscience.
The prodigal acknowledges his sins by turning to Jesus Christ and asking for forgiveness and deliverance.
They must also be willing to forgive others.


Communing With God

Peace of Mind
God reveals Himself through:
*The Glory of His Creation
*His Written Word (the Bible)
*His Son, Jesus Christ.
*The personal experiences of all who seek Him.
God invites the weary and the worried to place His Commands first in their lives to the reap spiritual blessings that no other source can supply.
The psalmist said, "Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain thee."
(Psalm 55:22)
Through worship, we acknowledge God in our lives.
Humble people acknowledge Jesus Christ in their lives as the King of their world.
To go to church is to be spiritually enriched, strengthened and to enjoy Christian fellowship.
When the church bell tolls, the Christian faithful go to church to hear the Voice of God through Liturgy and the Sacraments and to find Jesus Christ the Good Shepherd, Who leads His flock to greener pastures.
We look to God and Jesus Christ for for our salvation that comes with the forgiveness of our sins.
Through prayer, we seek guidance, forgiveness or the light of hope.
In quiet humility, we pray in our own words, our needs, our hopes and our dreams.
Christian fellowship unites human beings who have the same values and virtues to God and to one another.

Nature

When we can "see" beyond the material universe, we are inspired with a sense of awe and wonder of God's Wonderful Creations.
Away from the concrete urban sprawl, pollution, neon-lights and the traffic, we find peace of mind in a haven of beautiful landscapes wrapped by the quiet of nature.
Making time to "stop and smell the roses" always brings "sunshine." -
Peace of mind is found in moments when the mind is absorbed by beauty and serenity through the intangible resources of "time," and "contentment."
God's Spiritual Retreat is a sanctuary for the body, mind and soul where one can truly appreciate the visual delights of the natural world.
Whether you spend time in your backyard garden, a neighborhood park, a beach or the tranquil settings of the countryside, nature can have a profound impact that makes you feel better emotionally and contributes to physical well-being.
A leisurely walk in natural surroundings is the most exhilarating walk to put things into perspective and provide a new meaning to life.
Those who appreciate the beauties of nature can feel the spiritual energy filling them with an indescribable peace of mind.
"I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles."
-Anne Frank.
