I heard the saying, ‘fake it ‘til you make it,’ the other day. I was thinking how many times we do just that, but never seem to make it. We act one way on the outside when we feel completely different on the inside. If we want to have peace and joy in our lives, or even just contentment, we have to have it on the inside first. A person can’t fake peace, joy, or even contentment. What do we have to do then to get ourselves in a place where we don’t have to try to fake it ‘til we make it? We have to go to the root of the issue. There is something that is keeping us from achieving peace, joy, and contentment. It is up to us to find it, not the outward stuff, but go to the root of the matter.
