JUNE 2024 

Isaiah 43:18-19  "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now, it springs up;

do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."

Peace of mind? Now how do we do that? So many things are completely out of our control. We cannot change other people or should we be able to. What we can do is change our reaction and try to put ourselves in their situation and decide what we could do to alleviate it. A lot of stress comes from the way that you respond to life, and you need to change your attitude. It is not easy to overcome so much stress, worrying or over thinking a situation.

I am not saying that we have not learned from past mistakes. But the past is over, and it cannot be changed. Let go of the things that you cannot control and trust your instincts. This may be part of your transformation that you need-if a caterpillar can change into a butterfly, then you can change your life into something even more than it already is! Things can and will change if they are supposed to. You have overcome challenges before and sometimes it is a blessing since what you thought you wanted may not be the right path for you. Be kind to yourself and do not worry so much about other people and their negativity. It is their problem and not yours.

There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes it is pretty hard to see that light, but you have to have faith that things are going to work out the way that they are supposed to. Live in the moment and never give up.


Slow down, do not rush, take a deep breath, and enjoy your life. There is always something to be thankful for.
