EP03 | The Issue Of Stress
5 days ago
Stress is a major issue when it comes to our health and success not only as Christians but as people in general.
Research reveals that little amounts of stress are good for us as they motivate us to accomplish things but when our stress levels exceed our coping threshold then the effects of stress can be devastating.
Stress affects our health in many ways. It ruins us physically, emotionally, psychologically and even behaviorally. If you have ever been stressed for prolonged periods of time you can testify to how it can easily damage any and all types of relationships that you have in your life.
Worry is the same. We worry because we look for strength in ourselves. We always want to be in control. To see the future. However, we know that being this omnipotent and omniscient is a power only God has. Due to our inabilities we worry about tomorrow.
The Bible has an cure. The answer we've all been searching for- God. Believe it or not. If you have another way, well, try it. I can only speak for myself. God is willing to lift any and all burdens that we may have. He is more than capable. He wants us to trust in His sufficiency so that we never have to stress a day in our lives. It may seem impossible but would you stress if you really believed with all your heart that the same God who formed the whole world and everything around it is in charge of your life.
In this podcast we learn that only a full trust in God can rid us of stress and worry. That taking a break and helping others go a long way in setting you free from the bondage of depression. How? Because we take our eyes away from ourselves to focus on others.
Christian or not you do not want stress in your life. A lot of solutions are thrown around. You have the opportunity to try them all. Be sure to pick the right one. In the end it leads to one thing- SURRENDER!
