To live in inner contentment, the entire focus of our lives must be Jesus Centered.
I’ve had periods in my life when a problem or situation would cause me nights with no sleep . I’ve discovered the best thing I can do when I can’t seem to let go of thinking about a particular problem, conversation, or situation, is cry out to God: “Please help me through this. Help me focus on You alone.”
Sleep comes when my focus is on how the Lord would have me think or respond to a particular situation.
Thinking about the Lord brings a person peace. Thinking about anything else is usually a shortcut to anxiety, fear, or worry.
It’s the crazy times of life that we often allow anxiety to rob us of peace and joy. But,no matter where you are at any given time, Jesus is the source of your contentment and peace.
“Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.”
Never allow the pressure of the world to override the pleasures of walking with Jesus.
