Stress-free living…hmmm, I need to get to that point! Stress-free, to me, means peace and freedom from anxiety, and deliverance from all the accompanying ill health effects caused by stress. My absence from blogging since my last post 12 days ago, Do Not Despise Small Beginnings, is an indication my life has been busier than usual AND a bit stressful! My hope is to return consistently to blogging for these final 8-9 days, and start strong in May.
So here’s some inspiration for this day…
“Many people today are stressed out
beyond anything a human being
was ever meant to endure.
Every person is very different,
uniquely created by God’s design.
What is complicated for one
may be simple for another.
Don’t compare yourself with other people.
But when faced with a problem
or difficult circumstance,
you must ask yourself,
‘What would Jesus have me do
in this situation?
How would He handle it?’
Jesus was not stressed out or burned out.
He was not controlled by circumstances
or the demands of other people.
In John 14:6, Jesus said,
‘I am the Way.’
His way is the right way–
the way that will lead
to righteousness, peace, and joy.
Jesus prayed that His enjoyment
would fill your soul,
and it will when you learn
to take His approach to life
and its many different challenges.”
–Joyce Meyer in “Ending Your Day Right”
Yes, this is an important lesson to learn, and I obviously have NOT mastered it yet! Balance is the key to life, so I’ve heard numerous times!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Have you achieved a stress-free life yet?
If not, what steps are you taking to balance your life’s demands and manage your time to relieve stress?
