Feeling Stressed?

hiking-break-737555_640Is life overwhelming you today? Needing some peace and quiet, or maybe a few moments to relax in the sun?

I know how you feel. Many days, especially when I was raising my sons, I felt like I was running on a treadmill. The speed kept increasing and I couldn’t slow it down.

 

But, you can find some peace amidst the stress.

Try this:

While you’re standing in the grocery line or sitting in the school pick up line, briefly close your eyes and pray these words, “Dear Lord Jesus, help me focus on your face and your grace. I do not have the strength or the capacity to accomplish all I have on my plate, but with your strength and your provision, I can. Help me, Jesus.”

Open your eyes, take a deep breath, and in your mind and spirit, receive His peace and assistance.

Here’s a Scripture verse I find helpful:

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

I hope this helps you. It did me. And, I’ll tell you something else that helps–become a master in delegation 🙂

May God bless you today and every day,

Ginny
