Has stress got you in a chokehold?
Remember one important thing —
God will never give you anything you can’t handle so don’t stress.
When I’m faced with a problem or a deadline, I tend to stress. It takes MR N giving me a shake along with some encouraging words to remind me that I can handle whatever is going on. I’ve been to hell and back several times (you’d think I’d be on their frequent flyer miles program) and the one thing I learned is that God gives me an added boost of strength when I need it most.
Listen, life is filled with wave after wave of disappointments, setbacks and obstacles. They’ll knock you on your bum and just when you think you don’t have the strength to handle another wave, it washes over you. Somehow (and who knows where the strength comes from) we get to our feet and face the wave head-on. We’re wobbly on our feet and utterly exhausted but we’re upright. That’s the key to handling stress: when you fall down, get back up. Realize that you have untapped courage and toughness, just waiting to be used.
