How well do you handle stress?
It’s not the stress that goes on around you that will destroy you, it’s the stress that gets in you that will destroy you! Think about fish living in the ocean. They swim in salt water their entire lives, but the salt never gets into them. When a piece of fish goes on your dinner plate, you add salt! Why? Because the environment they lived in never found its way inside of them.
When facing stressful situations, ask God to help you avoid allowing the stress around you to get inside of you. Keep a peaceful heart, by trusting God, knowing that God is in control. Remember Jesus’ words in John 14:27 (NIV) “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.”
