As pressure and stress bear down on me,
I find joy in your commands.
My stomach has been in knots all week (and it's only Wednesday). Different things at work have been stressing me (and I've been trying not to let it). Just different things have made my stomach hurt a bit.
It does that sometimes.
How about you? Do you ever feel your stomach knotting or your palms getting sweaty or your heart racing?
What do you do when you get stressed?
What we *should* do is pray......
And read the Bible to calm our nerves....
We should focus on God and not our pressures or our stresses.
What's going to happen will happen
whether we stress about it or not.
I used to have this weird logic.
I thought if I DIDN'T worry about something then something bad would happen.
Like I was *that* powerful.
I've learned differently.
We all have stresses and presure on us. Just every day life things are hard, add to that a sick child, work, a sick parent/spouse, bills, etc. it builds up until we feel like we can't take it any more.
God can take all of that and he's given us his Word to help us cope with life. Sure, He has control over all situations, but He also gave us his commands so we can deal.
God Bless You
