Living with stress

From the day we are born our lives are filled with circumstances that challenge us and cause us stress. Our natural response is to try to fix things and control the situation. Whenever we do this we miss out on the peace God offers if we surrender our cares to Him. He can use any situation to bring us closer to Him.

Matthew 6:25-27
…do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food… Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not more valuable than they; who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life…

Matthew 6:33
But seek first His Kingdom and all His righteousness, and all things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

John 14:27
Peace I leave with you; my peace I will give you…Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid.

Psalm 37:5
Commit your way to the Lord: trust in Him and He will help you.

Isaih 26:3
You will keep in perfect peace He whose mind is steadfast because He trusts in you…

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, and who have been called according to His purpose.

Phillipians 4:7

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

There is a song that sums it up well:
“Turn your eyes upon Jesus’
Look full into His wonderful face
Then all things of  earth will grow strangely dim
in the light of His glory and grace.”

God bless you
