The best method to gain a heart at peace.

Updated on January 6, 2013

The best overall medicine.

“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones” (Proverbs 14:30 New International Version).

I recently read a report that says that doctors all over the world agree that anger, worry and bitterness is the cause of the majority of all illness.

Indeed I see people that are angry spiteful people who are very sick. When you try to explain they need to let go of past wrongs they stubbornly foolhardily refuse. They wickedly hang on to past wrongs like you would hang on to the railing on a boat during heavy weather at sea. As they get older and older there is less and less happiness in their lives, they become more and more isolated and sicker and sicker. Finally they end their days all alone in a room waiting to die. What a waste of life.

I have seen old people who are very happy and content. These are people who have gone through some very difficult times. How do they do it? They will gladly share the secret with you. It is giving it all to Jesus and being happy to have such a loving relationship with him.

If you want a great example listen to Corrie Ten Booms sermons. She watched her family die in the concentration camps and experienced the cruel treatment at the hands of the Nazi’s. She is a great example of the fulfillment of this verse.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) please always give all my anger, frustration, hurt and worry into Your wonderful healing hands. Then my beloved guide me where I can emulate the Mater Healer and help heal someone in this hurting world. I humbly beseech You in the name of the greatest Healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

      Good morning teaches.

      Very true.

      Worry brings anxiety, anxiety brings stress, stress brings health problems.

      Trust in Christ brings His love into our hearts. His love brings peace to our minds. His peace brings joy to our spirits.

      May you be blessed precious little sister with Christ's love, peace and joy.

      I sometimes forget that worrying does nothing for you but giving your cares over to Jesus lightens the burden and solves the problem. Great wisdom and advice for all of us. Thank you.

      Good morning cristina.

      It is true, Jesus is the best healer. He healed me of some very deep and painful wounds.

      Good morning Mekenzie.

      It is so sad when I see ick, bitter people who refuse to allow Jesus to heal them.

      May God bless you with His divine love, peace and joy

      Wonderful truth here teacherjoe and expressed so vividly .. (They wickedly hang on to past wrongs like you would hang on to the railing on a boat during heavy weather at sea.)

      The enemy deceives and blinds whoever will listen. He puts wrong thoughts in our mind. If we know God's word we must use it as a spiritual sword and come against the evil thinking with His truth.

      The enemy convinces people that the wrongs must be hung on to. Foolish and wicked as you say. The anger and pain caused by wrongs only hurt the one holding on to them. Jesus tells us to forgive .. that is where we find freedom and joy.

      Thanks for turning our eyes on the one who is LIFE and provides joy to those who have submitted to Him and allow His word to be their life manual. He is GOOD ... All the time!

      God Bless you brother!
