How many times a day do we hear ourselves or someone else saying things like; “I’m stressed, she’s stressed, this is stressful, he’s stressing me out.” The list goes on and on. Stress is serious and it’s killing people.
According to an article on the ehealthmd website, “stress is the emotional and physical strain caused by our response to pressure from the outside world. Common stress reactions include tension, irritability, inability to concentrate, and a variety of physical symptoms that include headache and a fast heartbeat.” You can read the entire article here: What is Stress?
As stated, stress is “caused by our response to pressure.” How are you responding? Do you get tense, uptight, irritable? Do you find yourself obsessing about circumstances and become angry, fearful or anxious? Maybe it’s time to take a deep breath and remember you can have peace. God’s Word promises us if we give our cares and concerns to Him, He will give us peace. No matter what the circumstance may be, God is ready, willing and quite capable of handling it for you, so give it to Him. Your faith combined with God’s Word is an unstoppable force.
