11 Tips To Regain Peace After Having Sinned

by Faith & Life, Meaning of Suffering, Sin, Spiritual Warfare

A few days ago I finished reading Inner Peace” by Jacques Philippe.  It is a brief spiritual book written in a simple language and filled with beautiful teachings about cultivating spiritual peace in our Christian life. The book goes over several actions and situations concerning ourselves or others that make us lose our inner peace: for example when we lose peace because we do not accept our past or because we don’t like the way we are or the way others are etc. It also offers reflections and practical advice to maintain peace in various situations.

Among the different pieces of advice I found particularly compelling and useful, those of a certain theme stood out: The problem of lost inner peace due to our own sins.  Who hasn’t experienced this?  When we sin we feel guilty for our actions and that is something healthy; however, it is not infrequent that the feeling of guilt transforms into remorse and anxiety that have little or nothing to do with the merciful God whom we believe in. For this reason I would like to go over 11 of the various suggestions that the book offers in facing our own sins as God commands.
