The world seems a little stressed these days. I don’t know why – it isn’t as if we are doing anything; we’re all staying at home.
I’ve noticed my stress levels on the rise, and it has nothing to do with COVID-19, except incidentally. Fortunately, it is circumstantial and should be short-term. Another month or so and I will be embracing a new normal. Or that is the theory anyway.
Stress being on my mind though, I thought these images might make your day better. I know they have helped me keep things in perspective.
Interesting and funny post here Friend. Through the hustle and bustle of life and the desire to do everything, we end up wearing ourselves out. For stress, I recommend a few things. First, start by putting God first, and begin your day with a prayer to God and a heart for God. God is able to orchestrate several things and he can use divine assistance to make our day easier. Second, we need to treat our body like a temple. Energy giving foods are a great resource. Thirdly, we need to take little breaks every now and then to refresh.
The most important of these is God. When things get tough, we can always reach out to him for help.
The Bible says in Philippians 4:6
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”.
God says in Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.
