My Four-Step Process for Dealing with Stress...

Life is hard. We can all definitely agree on that. And in the stressful moments when everything is rushing at you, hitting you like a tidal wave full of debris, it is so hard to take a step back and just process. However, that is exactly what we should do.

Recently, a friend of mine was feeling overwhelmed about her children, her job, and life in general. So, considering that it is so much easier to give advice rather than take it, I shared the following plan with her.

First, yeah, take a breath and step back for a moment. Peace. Be still. Mark 4:39

Second, remind yourself whose you are. But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine! Is 43:1

Third, remind yourself who HE is. Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O Lord, and You exalt Yourself as head over all. 1 Chron 29:11

Finally, stand on the right scripture or scriptures. And say them out loud. Here is my favorite: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Rom 8:28

So, here is some homework for ya. Go back through the steps above and pick out your own verses for each one. Believe me, there are a ton! Call it your Emergency Stress Management Plan! I think I’m going to print this out and pin it to the wall. I’m no genius, but this is darn good advice if I do say so myself. What do y’all think?
