All your problems are taken care of. You can relax now. Oh, this doesn’t mean you won’t have trouble or bouts with anxiety.
You just don’t have to.
You’re human. You have limits. We all have a breaking point. The good news is that you have a go-to. You can opt to turn your thoughts to Jesus. Talk to Him. Out loud. Thank Him for being there. Ask Him to help you.
At first it may seem nothing’s happening. But with time your issues will become less forefront, and your attitude, even your countenance will begin to change.
Even better, this behavior is contagious! When others see you handling stress well, they’re likely to want some of what you’ve got!
We’ve got a unique opportunity in the next few weeks to be a calming force. God can use the same Holy Spirit He used in Jesus in YOU! You’ll not only gain the peace you seek, you can help get it for others!
And we can use all the peace we can get!
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7
