Peace and Joy In The Soul

I want you to know that, from childhood to now, I have a very close relationship with my Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ; who is my Savior, Priest, and King.

I love the Lord with all My heart, might, mind, and strength. He atoned for the sins of the world and for mine as well; for all of my imperfections and mistakes.

Also, I love Him because He broke the bounds of death and the grave through resurrection. I know that through Him I can become sanctified and live with Him and my Heavenly Father when I leave this earth. Knowing these things gives me joy and solace in the mist of the evils that surround me today.

Because of the Lord’s teachings and those of His prophets, I know the pathway to God. I know how I must live to be happy and to feel content with my life. I don’t even want to think about what my life would be like if I had not known these things and lived my life according to the plan that my Father in Heaven has for me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mission is to help people find peace in their souls by following the correct principles that reward them with peace of mind, joy, and happiness. I know that when we try to live this life according to our own makings and our own design, we WILL NOT find peace of mind, joy, and happiness to the extent that we could if we had followed the Lord’s Plan for us.

I’ve learned that we can continue doing what we have always done, and we can make the mistakes that do not provide peace and contentment in the soul, but then the lessons we are supposed to learn will continue to be put in front of us until we learn them. This is a Universal Truth!

In other words, until we learn the lessons we are supposed to learn and make changes in our lives resulting in rewards that make us happy, the Universe will continue to serve up the lessons we need to learn until we finally figure it out and change. Laws within the Universe are fixed and unchangeable. Therefore, they are not subject to interpretation and manipulation in order to fit our circumstances. The truth of the matter is that “It is what it is” and we can resist and be miserable or comply and have peace in our souls; I choose peace!

Denying there is a God and that Universal Laws exist will not change a thing. Whether you believe or accept that they exist does not negate the consequence of your noncompliance. Compliance rewards us with the blessings our souls can depend on when life’s storms rage about us. Noncompliance , however, always has consequences that take us away from the blessings for which we yearn to have but only evade us.

One thing I do know for sure is that it is NOT wise to be in conflict with God and the Universe. Otherwise, life will just become harsher and more challenging in order to gain our attention. This is necessary in order for us to make the comment to live our lives differently. So go ahead and resist changing, continue to live life according to your own rules and see how far that gets you!

A Stuffed Treasure Box

A STUFFED TREASURE BOX CAN GIVE US PEACE IN TRYING TIMES.

Treasure Box

People may spend a lifetime in search of mysteries and the secrets of life. Searching for this will only be in vain until we apply correct principles that reward us with peace, especially when life’s storms blow into our lives.

You may identify with many of the things I tell you in this blog about peace.  Perhaps you will learn from my mistakes and my successes as well. Knowing what to put in our Life’s Treasure Boxes is one of the most important lessons we learn in life.

A stuffed Treasure Box and a full account in the Love Bank ™ provide the very assets we need to survive challenging times. (See Collossians 2:3 and Matthew 6:19-21 for details.) We will discuss the Love Bank™ in more detail at a later time

The love we have for our family members should be the most precious jewels in our Treasure Boxes. We  feel a strong obligation to protect them from drowning in the storms of life. In order to do that, however, our families will need the correct tools to protect themselves.

We try to shelter those we love from exposure to extreme temperatures, and from wind, snow, and rain. We need to be  just as responsible in sheltering them from influences that hurt them physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually until they are strong enough or old enough to do it for themselves.

Collecting the treasures of honesty, virtues, commitment, discipline, and being in harmony with God are the type of gems we should be putting in our treasure boxes. Doing so is how we survive the onslaught of affliction when life hits us hard, when we fail, when we lose loved ones, or when a disaster comes our way. We must build our lives upon the rock (see Matthew 7:24-27 for details) that keeps us safe from being swept away in a storm. From experience, I know that these are the best assets in withstanding the adversities we face.

Why are these gems an asset in trying times?

These treasures are like the boulders we anchor ourselves to in a storm and keep us from drowning in the torrent. We must hold on tightly, lest we be blown away or crushed by the current.

With experience, we learn that we can handle whatever life throws at us. We know this is true because we have wisely collected the gems that bolster our strength and ability to hold on in life’s storms. We might come out of  it with some pretty nasty cuts and bruises, but we will survive with our peace of mind still intact.

Now, more than ever, we need to help family members avoid being pulled into the chaos of a storm or caught in the wake of it as well. The Treasure Box Series helps you feel more secure in your ability to weather the storms that come into your life. You will know what to do to prevent the slightest wind from becoming a tempest.

If you will commit to the principles that protect peace of mind and apply them to your circumstances, you will learn some interesting things about yourself.  By so doing, your life will begin to change drastically. However, be aware that those around you who do not want you to change, those who want you to stay in the box they created for you, will do everything they can to discourage you from doing what you need to do. They do that because escaping the box challenges them to change the way they think about you and how they interact with you. Some people hate change so they resist the new person you are becoming. Do not let that dissuade you or prevent you from going after living a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling life. You deserve it!

Filling up our Life’s Treasure Boxes with gems of the spirit provides peace of mind when storms of tribulation and chaos beat on our doors. The gems we put in our treasure boxes become our most effective tools in achieving peace, joy, and happiness during hard times.

First-hand, I learned to protect peace in challenging times. For this reason, I developed a better understanding of the fact that life’s harsh lessons may seem unbearable at times. These lessons can deeply stir the soul, even plunge us into despair and chaos. Although it may not seem like it at the time you are suffering, these lessons will be useful when you cultivate it into a better understanding of life.

 Make the decision now to do something different than you have been and see what changes in your life. Perhaps you will find the changes beneficial and rewarding. It’s my experience that you will be pleased with the results. Once you learn them, please teach your children and grandchildren these important principles.
