Actually, “unknown” isn’t correct. I simply Googled the quote and found that Lady Gaga said this last year. So to give credit where it is due, thank you Lady Gaga for some inspirational words for this Wednesday. Peace is an interesting thing, isn’t it?
Calm in your heart…I understand the idea but it’s hard to come by, no? The absence of peace, for me anyway, is anxiety. But there really is no room for anxiety, worry or stress. Why focus on the wrong backdrop of life when we can fully live with the peace of Christ? Wonderful, blissful, peaceful life. I read Lindsay’s post this morning and have been replaying the idea of “backdrop” in my mind. Each step of every day I have the ability to make choices on how to react, how to live, how to handle, how to cope. This was just a great reminder for me today to surrender. To let go of the little things, and focus on the bigger things.
Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
How do you choose peace over anxiety?
