Robert Washington, Inner Peace and Happiness In 14 Steps
If you want a cure for stress, you need to learn to look to God to meet
your needs. Some people find their security
in their job, and when they lose their job, they lose their peace of mind.
Others put their security in their marriage. Then their spouse dies or they go

You can lose your job, your health, your reputation, your spouse,
and your mind.
But you cannot lose your relationship to Christ.

that your 'inside world' will be, too. And 'outside world' clutter and

feeding painful emotions, fears and hidden blocks.
The good news is that clearing out our 'outside world' can help
to declutter and free up our 'inside world'.
