When there is too much coming at you push back with deliberate thoughts of peace. There is nothing more powerful than God’s Word to bring peace to unsettled hearts. We do get affected by our circumstances but we can take heart because Jesus already overcame the world and all it can throw at us.
The Apostle Paul never wrote from his circumstances. Some of his most hopeful and profound words came while he sat hunched over in a very small jail cell. People who have visited the cell where he spent much time have said they were unable to stand upright in it.
Breathe in and say, “God will keep me in perfect peace.”
Breathe out and say, “because my mind is stayed on Him.”
Breath In and out and keep going. Isa 26:3
