“A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.” (Proverbs 14: 30, Amplified Bible, Classic Edition)
Our thoughts and feelings can surely influence our well-being. We can allow envy and anger, resentment and jealousy, to fester within us. This uncomfortable consciousness is surely a hindrance to feeling whole and healthy. It distracts and disturbs, preventing us from knowing our natural state of health and happiness.
It isn’t always easy to stay peaceful, and we needn’t condemn or judge ourselves over our lapses, our emotions. But if we linger with the troubled state of mind, we aren’t doing our lives any favors. And we have a ready remedy.
God has blessed us with His own qualities, and He is with us to quiet us, balance us, bring us calm and healing. We can let go of those feelings that are unkind to our bodies and our lives, and discover that undisturbed mind, that tranquil heart that is ready to be realized.
Our bodies don’t need to be punished any longer. They are innocent, and so are we. We can release with gratitude those rotten things, see them for the devilish accusations they are, and become more our true selves—happy, whole, calm, well.

When I was reading, one of my favorite hymns was … #99…. Thanks for your lovely daily uplifts!!!!!!! They are so loved and appreciated!!! Love from…. *Fearless and Undisturbed Pat*
He that hath God his guardian made, Shall underneath th’ Almighty’s shade
*Fearless and undisturbed abide;Thus to myself of Him I’ll say,* He is my fortress, shield and stay, My God; in Him I will confide.
His tender love and watchful care Shall free thee from the fowler’s snare, From every harm and pestilence. He over thee His wings shall spread To cover thy unguarded head. His truth shall be thy strong defense.
He gives His angels charge o’er thee, No evil therefore shalt thou see; Thy refuge shall be God most high; Dwelling within His secret place, Thou shalt behold His power and grace, See His salvation ever nigh.
