Serenity to me is having that calm state of mind no matter what is going on around us. It’s a peace from within that God gives me. Many things attempt to derail that serenity. Sobriety is also a state of mind, being sober isn’t about substances as much as it is about peace of mind. I have no substance issues but my parents did and as a result I allowed chaos in my thoughts for many years.
So many people on social media get hate discussions going or post negative stuff all the time. They hate on people who they think are doing wrong and yes many are but do I need to take away from my serenity to jump on the hate speech train? There is a way to have a discussion and respect other people’s opinions or choices without turning to hate. You feed right into satan’s plan by stirring up the hate.
People hate people for who they voted for, how they look, how they worship, and much more. Why? Does it get us anywhere by hating? Proverbs 18:21 says the tongue has the power of life and death. Use your speech and ideas to uplift not tear down, to cooperate, not compete with, to build up vs destroy. Love will change the world, not hate. Only love
