A Beautiful Mind
How is your thinking? When you are pursuing purpose, you are going to run into some difficulties. Sometimes difficulties can be with others, internally, or other external factors. The key is to remain focused and maintain A Beautiful Mind.
What do I mean A Beautiful Mind? There is a common phrase that says a mind is a terrible thing to waste. I would like to further this thought in relation to your peace. Peace is a beautiful thing. It allows you to smile when life could make you cry. It causes you to encourage others when there are areas in your life where you need encouragement yourself. It sustains your hope when you should feel defeated. It manages your temperament when your emotions are everywhere.
Peace is the result of an internal fight that takes place in the mind but has been won. Unfortunately, internal fights are often the toughest battles because it is easy to avoid detection by others. Internal fights are ones that individuals face alone unless shared. It is not until things get extremely bad that a lack of peace is identified by others. However, God is all knowing, and he knows the battles that we are facing. He wants to give you peace, but there are somethings that you must do to position yourself to receive peace: Let's go to the Bible.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
What these verses reveal-
1. Pray and bring your request to God
2. Receive Peace
3. Maintain Your New Focus
Therefore, it takes Action, Acceptance, and Augmentation of thoughts. God is ready to give you peace, but you must take everything to him in Faith by way of prayer. Then, you must receive the peace. Finally, you have to work to develop a continual focus on maintaining your peace.
Think on the good despite the bad: the faithfulness of God, God's plan for your life, God's love for you, all that you have overcome, and so on.
Ladies, we can be beautiful on the outside, but is it more important that we have A Beautiful Mind. That is what keeps us strong enough for our family, friends, and those we are in connection with.
