Stress is all around us and unfortunately, within us. We know stress is not good for us. Physically it wrecks havoc with our bodies. Mentally it causes us to make poor, rash decisions and not work up to our full capacity. It causes us to lash out at those around us and causes damage to relationships we once cherished. Having the peace of God does not mean all is quiet in our lives. It means that even though everything is falling down around us, we are still able to hold onto our anchor in the storm and remain balanced and content. Easier said than done! What are some practical ways we can accomplish this so we can have a strong, steady walk with the Lord instead of being distracted and always giving our second best? Stay with as we explore true peace to combat all of the anxiety this world has to offer.
We all worry and we all get anxious at times. Well, if we are people of faith – I mean if we are really people of real faith - then shouldn’t that faith override our worry? The answer is that in an ideal situation, yes, faith always wins. Unfortunately, the vast majority of us have not developed our faith that fully…yet! (Sigh!) The good news is Jesus knew this ahead of time and taught us how to cope with worry and anxiety! Stay with us – the “worry doctor” is in and his name is Jesus!
