Jesus, Do You Really Mean It?

Peace of mind brings enjoyment just short of the perfect happiness of Heaven.  Jesus said: “Peace be with you.”  He truly wants every one of us to have this harmony and tranquility within ourselves.  To have this best of all gifts, carry out the following ideas in living your life.

1) Free your heart of any animosity, ill-will, unforgiving feelings toward others, no matter what they have done to you.  While I eat out my heart with bitterness towards some individuals, these same people are out dancing and having a good time.  How foolish of myself.  Write your resentments on a piece of paper, dig a hole in the back yard and bury your resentments in that hole.  Then, go on to wish these people success and happiness. Pray for their good health.

2) If troubled about the past or whether your soul is in good condition, tell the priest: “Father, please forgive me all the sins of my life, those I forgot to tell and those I didn’t tell in the correct way.”  The priest has the power to say, “Your soul is in perfect condition, like the day of your baptism.  You have God’s word for that.”

3) With determination, train yourself to leave the future to Our Loving Father.  As the poem goes: “Put a fence of trust around today, fill it with good deeds and don’t look through the fence at tomorrow.  Leave that to your Father in Heaven.”  Refuse to carry the burdens of all your family members and your friends, regardless of how much you love them.  That’s too much on your shoulders, too much.  Enjoy life!  Relax!

4) You might say, “My health is poor, pain is with me every day.  How can I have peace of heart?”  You can!  Offer your sufferings for a cause bigger than yourself, for the sins of the world, for your family, your community.  Refuse to turn in on yourself in self-pity: “Peace be with you!”
