The only fathomable way to be at peace is to find the balance between the fluctuating thoughts of the mind to the undeniable love that dwells within the heart. Once an individual finds this balance between the two divergent mechanistic means of existing, he or she can step into the realm of complete understanding and reminiscence of past, present and future. How does one reach this sense of equilibrium, you may ask? Well, you must find your inner self through the grace of God and His wisdom.
There are so many things God tells us each and every moment of days that pass. It is undeniably astounding of how much God tries to communicate with us, but we seem to either ignore it or remain oblivious to His teachings. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, then came among us humans to begin to relay the word of God in the way it was meant to be understood. How did the world receive Jesus? By casting Him away, butchering Him like the slaughter of a helpless lamb, and hanging Him out to hang. The way in which our Lord died was so tremendously excruciating and irrational. The high priests and scribes wanted to make a mere example out of Jesus for being so forthright and speaking of, what they referred to as, blasphemy.
Our Heavenly Father is so compassionate and loves us so much that He allowed His only Son to be treated the way He was. There was an ultimate reason for the suffering and burial of our Lord and Savior. Through Jesus, man can be forgiven for his sins and through the gift of repentance; man can have the opportunity to enter the Kingdom of God. This was a remarkable sacrifice Jesus made for the sake of us unworthy servants of God. In actuality, man is sinful buy nature and does not deserve an ounce of what Jesus did for us. However, due to God’s great love and clemency towards mankind, He had mercy on man once again.
There are going to many times where we will sin. It is an inevitable process in which man will continue in a circular fashion and sin inexorably. God knows this and understands that humans were not made perfect. Just as a mother knows her child, God knows mankind. People do not take the time to truly listen to what God has to say. It can be something as simple as, appreciating the small things in life or as great as, thinking twice about marrying your fiancé. God shows us with signs, very subtle yet apparent measures to guide us through our everyday lives. Sometimes it is difficult to see them, and other times it is very obvious. During times of uncertainty, ask God. We may have to wait until times are right. God may not directly tell you, but the cliché: “Time will tell” or “Only with time”, is an indefinite truth of awareness.
As you move on through your day, take some time to look for God’s signs. They may not be physical; sometimes we get ideas into our heads, similar to revelations. We may have an issue that it unresolved, and immediately the answer becomes palpable. Try to listen and ask for help. God will tell you, even if you do not want to hear it. God is very gentle and highly patient. He waits for even the last person to arrive to His banquet. There is no better person from the first to arrive to the very last.
