we all face stress and pressure whether its financial, occupational, relational…life is full of stress and pressure. today i felt it come from every angle and i found myself in a quiet place just dwelling on the stress all around. how do you handle the stress that life wants to hand you? if you focus on the stress, then the stress will get the best of you! if you focus on your savior, then you will find rest for your soul.
Jesus said come to me all you who are weary and heavy laden and i will give you rest. the problem with stress is that it attempts to rob you of your rest. i found myself later focusing on my savior and all that he has done for me. God has done some big things in my life, and i began to remind myself of these. the issues are still real, but my savior is even more real!
if you are overwhelmed by the stress and pressure of life, then run to the savior and no to the stress! He will truly give you rest! this may only be a word for me, but in the state of the economy today i am sure there are many that find themselves dealing with stress and pressure!
