It is so important to ground yourself in Christ and live lives that resemble how He lived because this world will throw things at you all the time. If you are not prepared and even sometimes when you are prepared you go through emotional highs and lows. I really have to seek God constantly to stay on top of what the world throws at me and work in Christ strength not my own.
Colossians 3:15has helped me in this journey when I have struggled with clarity. It says “And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.”
We need to stop and remember this verse when anything comes into our lives. Christ surrendered His will and we need to be open to surrender ours when we are living to please God and not man. The peace that comes from above is more incredible than any peace we think we can get from our money or job or physical feelings, so we need to stop and think outside our own self and work to please Him. We are called to be different and that is good when we are grounded in the Lord, so open God’s word and let it transform you to be Christ like. Amen
