Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you.” (Psalms 55:22 NLT)
Stress. Just the very word conjures up images of anxiety. While some believe they work better under stress, it actually causes more suffering than we think. From heart disease to worn teeth to sleep deprivation, wrinkles & extra fat, stress is often the devil in many disguises, with side effects that destroy our life.
God knows this. While we stress over what others say about us on Facebook, it was also what early Christians felt as they were about to be released to Nero’s lions; even Jesus had it in the garden as He prayed before being arrested. But God wants you to let Him have it all. How? By having faith that He’ll take care of you & not worrying about outcomes. What will happen will happen.
As you celebrate Friday today, remember that Monday is still around the corner. But the problems you run from this weekend aren’t yours, they now belong to God. Cast it on Him, trust in His outcomes & let yourself be more stress-free! You are loved today!
