Stressed! I talk with a lot of people who seem to really be stressed. People have stress and struggle coming from just about every angle. I am not sure that there is a sure-fire way to avoid stress, but I do know that we can avoid staying stressed. Just because you are stressed, it does not mean that you have to camp out there. In fact, one of the best ways to get unstressed is to take a break from your stress.
A Break From Stress! To take a break from your stress, you have to figure out where the stress is coming from. What is causing stress in your life? Now that you know what it is or where it is coming from – just step away from it and take a break. It may be five minutes or it could be a few days. The time is not really the issue. What you do during this break is what really matters!
Game Plan! Two things need to happen during your break! You need to talk and you need to listen! Talk to God and tell Him what is going on. He already knows, but it will make you feel better to get it out. Next – Listen! Really listen for God’s voice and direction! You will know that you are hearing Him, when you feel your stress disappearing and being replaced with peace.
Give it a try – go ahead and take a break!
