“And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭30:20-21‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Good mornin’ QuietHeart,

I was reading about Nelson Mandela’s mindset of choosing to experience inner peace while in prison. He chose his attitude in the face of chaos, remaining still when it must’ve seemed a war was against him. Think about people you know who choose to remain loving while in the throws of adversity, or giving when they are down to nothing, or dead quiet in the face of oppression.

The rule of God Most High reining through your soul makes it possible to experience difficulty, yet hold a positive state in the process. That is what it is to rise above the things of this earth. It takes grace, a ton of determination, and well, accepting your choice to make choices. 

You can’t help what might happen to you, but it is your choice to decide how you will feel about it. 

Being able to live in peace, even a state of gratitude, when you’re in a tough place is a result of allowing your Creator to hold your Soul. It is a choice. Free will. The feeling of peace is the witness of The Teacher, to Whom you belong. 

On the flip-side, feeling like a sack of irritated worry worms is a marker that you surely need to re-adjust your trust in the God of the Universe, who created you.

Calm or anxious. Gratitude or anger. It’s your choice.

Wake up.

Quiet your soul.
