We can all feel a bit stressed at times, ok a lot of the time…
Stress can be caused by the circumstances we face daily. By things we can control or by things we cant.
One thing to remember is that the God of the universe is ALWAYS in control. We can take comfort in that. We can rely on him to listen to our prayers and calm us when we feel stressed.
God’s word says….
Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now,and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over to.”
1 Peter 5:6-7
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
2 Timothy 1:7
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
In him and through faith in HIM we may approach God with freedom and confidence.
Acts 17:24-25, 27-28
The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth… He himself gives all of us life and breath and everything else…
God did this so that we would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. “For in Him we live, and move, and have our being.”
