stress 300x200 Are You So Stressed Out You Are Ready to Scream?If you are so stressed out you are ready to scream, I have some advice for you. It’s not going to be easy to follow. It’s going to take some effort but it WILL calm you. It will position you to get the answers you need from God.

Listen very carefully. You are going to have to turn off the TV, ignore what other people are saying (unless they are led by the Spirit) and all other distractions. You are going to have to find a quiet place where you can be alone. You are going to have to turn your thoughts to the Lord, His ability and what He has promised in His Word. 

The summer before my last year in college, an older friend of mine told me that year was going to be a challenge for me. Little did I know she was giving me a Word from God. But I was young and silly so I ignored what she said. I told myself she didn’t know what she was talking about.

Well, let me tell you, the workload hit me like a ton of bricks. There was one moment when I was so stressed out I literally felt like screaming. But while working on a certain project, I recall the Lord telling me to stop and spend time with Him. That leading was so strong but I resisted it. I yielded to the pressure of getting that project done on time. The project turned out so-so. And, I will never know what God wanted to say to me.  I’m sure it was some word of wisdom that would have helped me manage my workload and relieve the stress I was under. 

It is not God’s will for you to be stressed out. His will for you is always peace. He wants you to know He is in your corner. Even if you can’t see the way out, He’s already prepared a way out. He knew you’d be dealing with this trouble long before it hit you. But the only way you are going to get the answer is to focus on Him.

This might seem to impractical. Problems are loud, aren’t they? They have a way of shouting at you as if to say, “Hey. I’m over here. Pay attention to me!” So, taking your mind off the problem may seem impossible. But with God all things are possible! So, yes you CAN get your mind off the problem and focus on the Word of God.    

I’m not saying you should pretend the problem doesn’t exist. What I am saying is that you have to place it in the hands of the only One that knows exactly how to resolve your difficulty.

You will know when you have truly placed that challenge in His hands because you will be convinced He is working on it. You will know in your heart that you are not going under. You will be at peace.

You’ll have to turn to God multiple times throughout the day. Each time the devil reminds you of that problem and how you are about to sink, you need to tell Him, “No! By the stripes of Jesus I am healed! No! The Lord supplies all my needs! No! The Lord is faithful to me!”

Remember, God’s will for you is PEACE not to be stressed out no matter what is happening in your life. So, take time to get with God. Grab your Bible and read scriptures about peace. Memorize them and pray them into your life. Let me help you get started. Go here now!
