Finding Peace in the Storm

Boy oh boy, it’s an understatement to say that it has been rather interesting and unexpected beginning to 2021. So we thought it would be a perfect topic to look at a few solid strategies of how we can find peace amidst the storm!

 Science has proven time and time again that stress is the biggest strain on our ability to cope with the challenges and changes we face.  Panic can often bring with it uncontrollable fear and anxiety which narrows our thinking, and makes us an island of one at a time when we need each other more than ever

 Our takeaway today is to focus on the things we can control instead of the main circumstances outside of our ability to change.  It’s a perfect time to slow down and be more aware of God’s presence in our lives, even when chaos abounds and our focus is being diverted away.  

 When it comes down to key insights of how to soak in more of God’s presence, we have loved the insights from John Eldredge in his book, Get your Life Back.He highlights a few wonderfully simple practices, or what John calls “graces”- to choose peace over panic, to uplift your spirits, and to have a concrete way to disentangle from the hardships of the world. These graces include the 4 following key thoughts…

As you move forward into your week, we encourage you to explore trying a ‘sacred pause’ occasionally throughout your day. 

You’ll be surprised what a minute can do for your soul! Honestly, you can do this pause anytime and anywhere. It’s a time to let go of the stress and strain of the day, and to invite God to fill you with His never-ending love and grace. 

As David wrote in the Psalm 131:2, “I have cultivated a quiet heart.” Taking a sacred pause is a beautiful and a simple way to refresh your spirit and develop a quiet heart, no matter the chaos that may abound.  The practice itself is wonderful, and it opens a space in your soul for God to meet you there.

If you’re looking for an inspirational tool to make this happen, check out the free app One Minute Pause by John Eldredge. It provides an easy way to integrate a sacred pause throughout your day and we have found it to be a beautiful way to refresh and recharge- definitely a great way to provide moments of peace amidst the storm.
