help with being stressed

I know that many of you don’t need any help with dealing with stress.  In fact, you may be a person who is completely immunized from anything stressful so you might find these ideas to be boring.  If, however, you find yourself struggling with stress from time to time, these are some things that have helped me of late:

  • if I get jittery about the future, it’s really helped me to re-adjust my focus to keep it on Jesus, being confident that when I get to the future, Jesus will be there.  More importantly, I can be with Jesus now in this moment
  • provision challenges: sometimes God’s provisions come on a day-to-day basis.  With this in mind, I can trust that He is giving me what I need for this day and even this moment
  • while this may sound cheesy, it’s really helped me alot lately to praise & worship God just on my own without music or even a specific song but just singing my own songs and words that are from my heart
  • finally, the other day I was up really early & really stressed out;  I read an email about a friend who is going through a REALLY DIFFICULT time.  Reading about her hardship made me instantly want to pray for her – taking my mind off of me

I believe that God has huge help available for us, even in stressful times ,)

  1. I ‘VE COME TO REALIZE I WILL THROW MYSELF INTO WORK WHEN I AM STRESSED AND THE SITUATION IS SO MUCH THAT I NEED TO FOCUS ON SOMETHING ELSE TO HELP ME DEAL WITH IT. IN THE SITUATION THAT HAS BEEN AT HAND NOW IT CALLS FOR ME TO NOT BE ABLE TO DO WHAT I ALWAYS DID. SO I HAVE BEEN LEARNING AND DEALING WITH A VERY LONG TERM STRESSFUL SITUATION, MY ABBA FATHER GOD IS SO SWEET SO LOVING KIND GENTLE HE IS THE CALM IN THE STORM, ITHANK YOU TO JESUS WHO IS CHRIST LORD AND KING OF ALL KINGS.!!! AND I THANK GOD FOR SO VERY MANY MANY TIMES HE HAS USED SARAH AND HER MOM TO COMFORT,SUPPORT,MINISTER AND TEACH ME …THANK YOU MY SISTERS IN CHRIST!!

  2. Hi Sarah,

    Your suggestions are only boring to those who are not walking victoriously with Jesus nor have the desire to. Your list is precisely what I practice, tho I have not reached perfection in them either

    How lovely Holy Spirit is as we walk in Oneness with Him and hear His wisdom for each day. As we are One with Him, we walk in Oneness, or perhaps a more popular word – Unity with one another.

    You are a wise woman Sarah and you are not alone in your stressful times. Please do not fall into the self-pity trap my sister. We belong to one body, and one Spirit, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all. Ephesians 4. What a great chapter, but most of them are, huh?
    🙂

    Lord, make us One.

    Glory to God, Glory to God, Glory to God Forever!
