Living in a virtually connected world it is natural to see a mindset/mood of "peace" get overrun by the onslaught of negative news. A person's soul can begin to feel like a batting cage as it tries to interpret calamities that flash across the news feeds. At some point it cannot help but become toxic. But the human heart wasn't designed to flow rhythmically unless it is grounded in peace. Where can one flee and be restored by the healing balm of equanimity? Probably not by going out or even in, but rather up. Faith that God is somehow moving the life process to His desired end can lighten the weight of a crushing world load. It's then up to us to let peace rule our lives instead of stress.
