Make Peace with Yourself
“Make peace with yourself, and both heaven and earth will make peace with you.” ~ St. Isaac the Syrian
Do you have anyone in your life that is hard to get along with?
Maybe they seem to be fine with others, but with you it’s a different story. You wonder, what have I said or done to provoke this person? Or, maybe the struggle is within yourself. Whenever you are around this person, you aren’t content. They know how to “push your buttons.”
So often it is our inner life that creates discord with others. Our inner struggle. One should approach situations like this in prayer and humility. Is it me? What is my struggle truly with? While you are working this out, know that they are quite possibly struggling with unknown demons themselves. In this case, the grace you give them will soothe your own soul.
Does someone come to mind today? Bathe this relationship with prayer and practice patience. God’s peace will be your reward.
