How Do You Strive to Make

Peace? You find a way by figuring out what it takes to make it work!

  • Learn to celebrate instead of always being critical— *(a critical spirit is debilitating, but an encouraging word can be liberating). 
  • Learn to speak the right language at the appropriate time— *(Words matter and timing and tone matters).
  • Don’t complain about what you allow and don’t tolerate what you could confront— *(Deal with what needs dealt with in a timely and appropriate manner).
  • Don’t excuse what should be expressed— *(Say it, if it needs said, but say it in love!).
  • Destroy assumptions, perceptions and feelings by having those tough conversations— *(Crucial conversations are crucial in regard to conflict resolution).
  • Learn to concede and to compromise— *(What’s best may not be what I think, feel or want).
  • Learn to give and take, and to LET IT GO— *(If it’s always about you, you will never have peace).
  • It’s not about winning; it’s about working it out— *( If you have to win every argument and conquer every battle, you will never have true peace).
  • Don’t keep things stirred up that need to die down— *(Don’t make what is not a big deal a big deal and quit talking about it!).
  • Don’t walk away from what you you were meant to walk through— *(You won’t have peace if you are living in regret— face what needs faced).
  • Seek first to understand- before being understood— *(Chinese proverb, but good advice).
  • Deal with what needs to be dealt with and let go of what you can’t change— *(Again, let it go and remember, don’t let what you can’t control or change to affect you in a negative way).

***Peace is an atmosphere that is produced by proper patterns that embody a Spirit-Led and Christ-Centered life.
