As a believer in Jesus Christ, I should exude joy and peace but those attitudes go straight out the window when I’m overwhelmed and stressed. And the last thing I want to be is a stressed out follower of Jesus because that’s not a good witness. Jesus was a man of action yet he was never stressed. What was it that I was missing? What did I need to learn to change my ways?
I remember reading about the Proverbs 31 woman when I was a new believer. Man, was that woman busy! When I compared her life to mine the first thought that came to mind was “failure”. In fact, I thought, I might as well just grab a sharpie and write that word across the page in my Bible knowing full well I’ll never measure up to her. But, then I came to the end of the chapter and that’s when I found the life-changing verse that put everything into perspective.
Join me in this episode as I discuss the 4 reasons for feeling overwhelmed and stressed and the steps you can take to make those changes.
