A known issue which plagues almost every individual is the mental, emotional and physical tension known as stress.
We do all kinds of things to be relieved of the Stress Monster: Turn to alcohol and drugs, watch television, exercise, eat comfort food, spend time with loved ones… You get the idea. People make a living off studying stress and creating ways for us to escape from it.
As it turns out, I have an easy way to eliminate your stress woes without booking another massage or drowning yourself in another bottle of wine.
Become a Christian.
Yes, it’s that easy! I can explain for those whose vision of the Lord is a bit foggy.
Before I get into the nitty gritty, let’s take a step back and examine what exactly causes stress in the first place.
- Your job
- Emotional problems
- Poor sleep patterns
- Family issues
- Drastic life changes
- Getting fat
I could go on and on. Stress is part of life. We can’t avoid it right?
WRONG! Like I said, all you have to do is start believing in God.
God is all-knowing and all-powerful, so everything you are going to do or are doing now, he already knew about. You don’t have to take responsibility for anything you do, because he already knew you were going to do it!
Rain on your wedding day? Can’t make a deadline? Forgot your friend’s birthday? Late for work? Stuck in overwhelming debt? No problem! Take a deep breath, my friend, because none of these things are your fault. It is all part of God’s design to strengthen you as a person and remind you to pray next time.
Just sit back, relax and let God’s special blueprint work itself out.
I was placed on this Earth to be skeptical, discover the one and only stress cure-all and relay the message to you. What will you do with this information?
Whatever you want! Because whatever you chose to do, was predestined. It all happens because of His plan. Bask in this wonderful reality. It’s up to Him. NOT you.
Okay, okay I’m not suggesting Christians are automatically stress-free. Humans aren’t stress free. Stress is what motivates us. It’s a part of life. It forces us to work harder.
My point is, if you believe God has a plan, why worry? Leave it up to Him. Stop making decisions.
If that sounds preposterous… well, you’re right. Turning to God won’t solve your problems. Christians know this. We all know this. Your reality can only truly be constructed through your choosing. YOU have the power.
Now THAT’S cool.
If you disagree with the power residing in yourself, refer to the beginning of this post. Put your destiny in the Lord.
