The next prompt in “God is My Happy Place” is:
“How do you find peace when everything around you feels chaotic?”
When things are chaotic, I need quiet time alone. In that quiet time, I read my Bible, pray, color, read a book for pleasure (usually a biography). But most importantly I spend time with God.
If I am at a place, such as work, where I can’t disappear for a while to have quiet time, I put on my headphones & listen to praise music. It shuts the world around me out & allows me to focus. This in turn calms me down.
If I dont have quiet time or time to think/calm down, I get really anxious. However, God has a way of showing up and giving me the time I need.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7 NIV
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6 NIV
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
2 Thessalonians 3:16 NIV
