Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the presence of God no matter what the conflict.
~ Anonymous ~

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

~ Matthew 5:3-11 ~

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 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to Day 19 of the A to Z Challenge. I love the Beatitudes and the God giving peace that’s within. Praise The Lord, when we know and experience that kind of peace.

These are my thoughts on peace of mind.

A renewed mind maintains a peace of mind when negativity no longer dominate thoughts.

Peace of mind understands everyone is entitled to their opinion and it’s only information.
Peace of mind knows how to let go the need to be right.

Peace of mind loves that the grace of God is provided daily.

The upside of peace of mind:

Projects calmness
Adaptable and disciplined
Comfortable in own skin
Easy to communicate


Instills serenity
Delighted to keep moving forward

Abundant blessings to keep the faith and enjoy your day.

I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

The most important peace we can find is within ourselves. I find it gets easier as I get older, but worth it!
