Nurture a Peaceful Mind

Plant great thoughts in the garden of your mind… help them to thrive and bear fruit.

“Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”

Hebrews‬ ‭12:14‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

Galatians‬ ‭5:22-23‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.”

Romans‬ ‭8:6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Seek not that the things which happen should happen as you wish; but wish the things which happen to be as they are, and you will have a tranquil flow of life.


Men are disturbed not by the things which happen, but by the opinions about the things: for example, death is nothing terrible, for if it were, it would have seemed so to Socrates; for the opinion about death, that it is terrible, is the terrible thing. When then we are impeded or disturbed or grieved, let us never blame others, but ourselves, that is, our opinions. It is the act of an ill instructed man to blame others for his own bad condition; it is the active one who has begun to be instructed to lay the blame on himself; and the one whose instruction is completed, neither to blame another, nor himself.


“Peace of mind is not a goal I need achieve.  It’s a place inside I never want to leave.  Close my eyes, I still my thoughts and then I say I will choose to live in peace today.”

My Thoughts:

Victim mindset is toxic. Do not indulge the opportunity to play victim… rise above… see the blessing in each situation. Be thankful it’s not worse. Seek God and spiritual growth.
